Celtic's Juarez compares boss Lennon to Gattuso

Celtic new-boy Efrain Juarez has compared manager Neil Lennon to former Rangers midfielder Gennaro 'Rino' Gattuso.

Juarez, 22, arrived in Glasgow this summer, but has been quick to pour praise on his new boss, even if the comparison may not please the Celtic idol that much.

"I am very grateful to everyone at the club - the directors, players and coaches - because they have gone out of their way to welcome me with open arms,'' Juarez told the Daily Record. ''I have been treated so well in Glasgow and I want to repay everyone who has helped me since I arrived.

"Our team has many new players - nine have come since Nei l Lennon was appointed as manager, I think. Neil Lennon was an idol at Celtic who retired recently and went into coaching.

"He was the same type of player as Rino Gattuso - strong and committed. And that is how he asks us to play. He wants us to give absolutely everything for the Celtic shirt.''
