Neil Lennon officially announced as new Celtic manager


Neil Lennon has been appointed as Celtic boss for the second time and wants to deliver a fourth treble for Celtic.

It was revealed by Lennon himself that after the win in the Scottish Cup over Hearts at Hampden Park and securing a third treble for Celtic he was offered the job in the dressing room showers after the game.

The Northern Irishmen took over in February after Brendan Rodgers departed from the position which saw the 47-year-old inherit the job on an interim role and delivered Celtic’s eighth title in a row in his second stint at the club.

Asked what challenges lie ahead, Lennon said:

“Trying to win a fourth treble. That’s a big challenge; trying to still be the dominant team in the country, and we obviously want to progress our own players through the ranks.

Recruitment will be important as there will be players leaving. We want to freshen things up a little bit.”

Lennon has signed a 12-month rolling contract, with John Kennedy continuing as assistant manager and Damien Duff retained as first-team coach.

Lennon had a four-year stint in charge of the club from 2010 and had spells with Bolton Wanderers and Hibernian, before leaving Easter Road in January.

During that first spell at Celtic Park, he won three league titles. Prior to that, he made 214 appearances for the club across seven years before leaving in 2007.
