Neil Lennon has offered Jimmy Bullard the chance to reconsider his wage demands at Celtic.

But midfielder will need to reconsider his financial stance

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has offered Jimmy Bullard the chance to reconsider the wage demands that priced him out of a move to Parkhead. Hull City had agreed to loan the midfielder to the Scottish giants but the deal is said to have collapsed over personal terms, with the player reportedly demanding an extra £30,000 on top of his £45,000-a-week salary at the KC Stadium. Bullard was a £5million record signing for the Tigers, however, he suffered a number of fitness setbacks to mean that he has played just 15 matches in 18 months. Celtic nonetheless remain keen to sign the 31-year-old but Lennon has told the former Fulham and Wigan man that he will need to rethink his financial stance. "The door is still open for Jimmy if he wants to reconsider," Lennon said in the Daily Record. "Everything was agreed with Hull and he wanted a bit more. We couldn't do that but the door is still open if he wants to reconsider."
