Neil Lennon signs Adam Matthews as ex-Celtic star completes Omonia Nicosia transfer

Neil Lennon has brought a familiar face to Cyprus after signing up former Celtic defender Adam Matthews for his Omonia Nicosia side. The full-back won the lot in Scotland while at Parkhead after lifting the Premiership on multiple occasions and adding a Scottish Cup and League Cup success.

He was also part of the side who picked up that famous Champions League win over Barcelona in 2012. Victor Wanyama and Tony Watt grabbed the goals on the night for Celtic.

Wales international Matthews has agreed a two-year deal to join Lennon having recently been involved at Charlton in the English Football League. The 30-year-old is expected to fly out to Cyprus soon to complete the agreements on the move.
