Celtic manager Neil Lennon intends to use striker Georgios Samaras over the remaining games despite refusing new terms at Parkhead.

"He's been a big, big player and can take a lot of satisfaction, if and when he does leave" - Neil Lennon
The 29-year-old Greek forward hasn't actually started since the end of January and Lennon admitted his form had probably slipped over recent months.

"It is looking more and more likely that Georgios will be playing his football elsewhere unless his representatives
come back to us," he told BBC Scotland. "I don't want to write his epitaph just yet and we know his strengths when he's in full flow.

"He's been a big, big player for me and he can take a lot of satisfaction, if and when he does leave, for his contribution here."

The UK's Tightest Derby Clashes - 2017

Ever wondered which local derby in the United Kingdom is the most closely contested?

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
