Lennon confirmed as Celtic manager

Celtic have confirmed that Neil Lennon will remain as manager after agreeing a 12-month rolling contract with the Scottish champions...

The former Hibernian boss had been in charge since the departure of Brendan Rodgers to Leicester City in February and guided the team to their eighth title in a row before completing the treble Treble with victory over Hearts in the Scottish Cup final. John Kennedy will be assistant manager and Damien Duff continues his role as first-team coach.

Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell told the club website: “We have known Neil as a player, captain, coach and manager. He has brought great success to Celtic in the past and we’re sure he’ll do so again in the future.”

Lennon said: “It is a massive honour to be named Celtic manager once again. I had always dreamed of returning to this role on a permanent basis and I am absolutely delighted to once again be part of one of the biggest and best clubs in the world."
