Scottish giants Celtic boss Neil Lennon has accused Championship side Nottingham Forest of trying to unsettle defender Kevin Wilson. 

Celtic boss has already seen two of his star players leave the club this summer in favor of Premier League as Gary Hooper made his move to Norwich City and Victor Wanyama joined the Saints.


Now, Lennon is desperate to keep his number one defender at the club despite Nottingham Forest trying to lure him back to the club where he spent four years before joining Celtic.


"I have spoken to him. I don't want him to go," Lennon told the Daily Record.


Lennon was also critical of the way Forest are trying to lure the 27 year old into signing with them.


"There is no doubt there is something naughty going on," he added.


"His home and family are in Nottingham and that's a big lure for him.


"Some people down the road know that and are using it."
