Neil Lennon Offered Celtic Job Following ‘Treble Treble’ Win

Celtic interim boss, Neil Lennon, has been offered the job on a permanent basis after helping the club create history by securing the ‘treble treble’.

The Hoops came from behind this afternoon to defeat Hearts 2-1 in the Scottish Cup final and secure their third domestic treble on the trot.

Following the game, Celtic captain, Scott Brown, called upon the club to appoint Lennon on a full-time basis and it would seem as though his wish is about to be granted.

The club released a statement via Twitter this evening:

“We are delighted to announce that Neil Lennon has been offered the job as permanent Celtic FC manager and the details will be confirmed in the coming days.”

Lennon, who took over as manager following Brendan Rodgers’ decision to jump ship and move to Leicester, described Saturday’s cup final victory as one of the best days of his life and said there is a good chance he will take the job.

“There is a good chance I will accept the job.

“It’s probably one of the best days of my life. You will never see it again. They are immortal now.”

Chief Executive, Peter Lawell, also hailed Lennon as a true Celtic man who stepped up when the club needed him.

“Neil stepped up to the plate when we needed him. He’s a true Celtic man who knows the club and the city.

“He’s a winner with a fantastic eye for a player. I’m delighted to announce he’s been offered the job.”
