It’s been a rollercoaster couple of months: Lennon

The Celtic interim manager has been offered the coaching job permanently after guiding his team to the Scottish Cup championship.

Since replacing Brendan Rodgers as Celtic manager, interim coach Neil Lennon has led his team into the Scottish Premier League championship and the Scottish Cup title.

And now after lifting the cup, he has been offered the job as a permanent boss for the club.

“It’s been my privilege to manage the club once but to do it a second time I feel sort of full circle again,” he told The Express.

“It was always my objective. I left the club on good terms last time and nothing’s changed.”

Johnston is disappointed after being injured

Celtic winger Mikey Johnston was disappointed to miss Scotland Under 21 national team's victories over San Marino and Croatia, and he hopes he can return to play soon.

“It’s been a rollercoaster couple of months. It’s been difficult but I hope I bring a lot more success to the club login forward,” he added.

“It’s [the hard work] already begun really.”

“There’s going to be changes in personnel obviously,” Lennon said.

“But I don’t want to change too much because it’s been a really good transition between myself and Brendan.”

He concluded: “I’ve got to pay tribute to him and [former manager] Ronny [Deila] who have done fantastic things for the club as well.”
