On Goals on Sunday: Neil Lennon and Chris Hughton star on first show of season
We talk Celtic, Norwich and preview the big Premier League kick-off...

Goals on Sunday is back this weekend – and Celtic and Norwich are likely to feature prominently.
That’s because former Bhoys boss Neil Lennon and ex-Canaries chief Chris Hughton will be on the sofa for a chat with presenters Ben Shephard and Chris Kamara.
Lennon, who left Celtic this May after four years in charge, saw the Glasgow side dumped out of the Champions League in midweek following a 6-1 aggregate loss to Legia Warsaw in their first competitive tie under Ronnie Deila.
But the Hoops were given a reprieve on Friday morning when they were put back into the competition - and handed a final-round qualifying tie against Slovenian outfit Maribor - after Legia Warsaw fielded an ineligible player against Deila’s men in the 2-0 second-leg triumph at Murrayfield on Wednesday night.
The Ulsterman will have his say on that and what he expects from the Hoops this term, as well as reflect on his successful stint in the Celtic Park dugout, which yielded three Scottish Premiership titles, two Scottish cups and a win over Barcelona.
Hughton is also taking a break from management after departing Norwich towards the backend of last season, just weeks before the Carrow Road outfit sunk into the Championship under Neil Adams’ stewardship.
Does Hughton think he would have kept the club up and how does he feel the East Anglia side, boosted by the summer arrivals of strikers Lewis Grabban and Kyle Lafferty and midfielder Gary O’Neil, will fare in the second tier?
The former Newcastle and Birmingham manager should answer those questions, as well as others that Ben and Kammy – and you if you Tweet us via @GoalsOnSunday – ask him, a mere few hours before Norwich open their campaign, live on Sky, at League One champions Wolves.
We will also spend time previewing next weekend’s big kick-off in the Premier League and ask Neil and Chris who they think will flourish or flop in the top flight and which players they expect to make an impact.
So for all that, plus Saturday’s Championship goals and a much-needed dose of Kammy, watch Goals on Sunday, 11am, Sky Sports 1.
