Manager Neil Lennon insists investment is needed for SPL leaders Celtic to become Champions League regulars.

"If I can get £10m to spend on new players in the summer, we'll be even better" - Neil Lennon
The Hoops made it to the last sixteen of the competition this season until losing comfortably over two-legs to Italian champions Juventus last week.

"What I need is investment," Lennon admitted to stv.tv. "If I can get £10m to spend on new players in the summer, we`ll be even better.

"This club is ripe. We've got really talented young players in the team," he continued. "We haven't spent a lot of money, we've made a profit every window, we've cut the wage bill and sometimes when you have that sort of cut back then the quality is diluted at times and that's what we're seeing."

Meanwhile, Lennon readily accepts that some players will be leaving in the summer but confirmed that planning for next season was already well underway.

Rodgers impressed with depth

Manager Brendan Rodgers said the latest victory against Dundee in the Scottish League Cup served to highlight the depth of his available squad.

Dundee 0 Celtic 4

Holders Celtic moved into the Scottish League Cup semi-finals with a 4-0 victory against Dundee at Dens Park.

The always lively Scott Sinclair's penalty earned them a first-half lead improved by James Forrest just prior to the break.

However, the Hoops were forced to wait until very late in the contest before substitute Callum McGregor and Forrest (again) added further goals.

Defender Dedryck Boyata was passed fit to play following a knee injury that had ruled him out so far
