Neil Lennon drops massive hint that he is the new Celtic manager


Neil Lennon has dropped a huge hint that he will imminently be returning to take over at Celtic .

Lennon is tipped to replace Brendan Rodgers at Parkhead following the expected departure of their treble-chasing manager to Leicester City.

The club’s former captain called it quits in May 2014 following four years in charge, having grown disillusioned with the lack of challenge offered by Scottish football.

But it appears legend Lennon is ready to be suited and booted in the dug-out once again.

The 47-year-old popped into Forbes, the club’s tailor, earlier today and came out clutching two bags.

He wasn’t shy about it, happily posing on the Glasgow store’s instagram account with what looks like a rather telling collection.

He could even be back in charge for Wednesday night’s fixture at Hearts.

Celtic are looking for a new manager after Rodgers was persuaded to return to the Premier League having last managed Liverpool back in 2015.

Leicester have agreed compensation with the Scottish Premiership club with around £6million taking him back to England.

“Celtic Football Club today confirmed that it has been approached by Leicester City FC to speak to Brendan Rodgers with regards to their current managerial vacancy,” a statement read.

Lennon is a legend at Celtic Park and his return appears close

“Brendan has indicated to the club that this is an opportunity he wishes to investigate further and therefore, very reluctantly, the club has granted him permission to speak to Leicester City.”

Lennon left Hibernian last month by mutual consent. The 47-year-old won three league SPL titles during his first spell in charge of the Bhoys.

Meanwhile Rodgers has been told by ex-Celtic striker Chris Sutton that replacing Clude Puel as Leicester boss will represent a “downgrade”.

“I would say [to Rodgers] don’t downgrade yourself from Celtic, because you’ll get European football at Celtic. You won’t at Leicester,” Sutton told BBC 5 Live Sport.

“I don’t want to see him leave Celtic, but I think it will happen.”
