Celtic unfazed by Levante claims
Celtic boss Neil Lennon has played down the controversy surrounding Lassad Nouioui's arrival and insists "everything is above board".
The Tunisia international joined Celtic on Sunday after seeing his deal with Deportivo de La Coruna come to an end, but Spanish side Levante have accused the forward of going back on a deal to sign for them. Levante have indicated they are planning to launch a legal challenge on the move but Lennon insists he is unconcerned by the La Liga outfit's claims. "Having spoken to [chief executive] Peter Lawwell and Lassad's advisors everything is above board - that's the way we do business anyway," he said. "Whether another agent got involved with the player I don't know. "Sometimes these people do get involved and muddy the water a little bit, but as far as we are concerned everything was done the right way." He added: "He is a Celtic player who did his medical and he is training at Lennoxtown with the rest of the players who are here and we are very pleased to have him,. "I don't know what repercussions there can be, certainly not on our part anyway. I am assuming that the player is aware of the fuss."
