Celtic boss Neil Lennon has admitted he could have to sell some of their star players in the summer after the club’s Champions League escapades.
The Bhoys enjoyed wins over Spartak Moscow and, most significantly, Barcelona at Parkhead en route to the last-16 of the competition where they were beaten 5-0 by Serie A champions Juventus.
But, despite being proud of his side’s performances, Lennon now fears he will now lose some of his young stars after they showcased their skills on the biggest stage in European football.
"I hope they've learned a lot as they move on in their careers," he said. "They've done the club proud and tonight I'm proud to be the manager here in this fantastic arena.
"I hope these young guys will blossom from this experience. But last-16 is cut throat and Juventus beat us."
When asked about what the future may hold for his players, he added: "It's going to be a big ask [to keep them all]. It's hard to stop progression...
"We'll see what the summer brings. There'll be players who want to progress their careers and it's a progression for us too. We want to bring in players, develop them and sell them on, so far that strategy's worked for us."
