Neil Lennon Takes Charge Of Celtic Until The End Of The Season

Sean Raymond by Sean Raymond / 26 March 2010, 10:26

Following Tony Mowbray's departure from Celtic yesterday the job has been given to Neil Lennon on a temporary basis until the end of the season as he looks to salvage some pride for the fans after a terrible season. Lennon had been in the back room staff at Celtic under Tony Mowbray and he has now been given the opportunity to stake his claim to take the chance on a full-time basis. His job between now and the end of the season will be to win the Scottish Cup and try to close the gap between themselves and Rangers at the top of the SPL which currently stands at ten points with Celtic having played two games more.

Lennon is a popular man amongst the fans at Celtic Park and he will be welcomed into the job over the next couple of months, this will be his first Managerial role though and there are some who believe that Celtic need an experienced hand to steady the sinking ship. Tony Mowbray tried to change the style of play at the club and failed so Lennon will need to deliver one thing and one thing only and that is wins, the side are lacking confidence and that will only come back gradually with some results on the pitch.

If he can galvanise the team over the next couple of months then he is sure to be in the pole position to take the job on a permanent basis in the Summer, likewise if things continue to slip then the board and fans will be calling on a more experienced Manager to take the reigns. Paul Lambert is one name that continues to be linked with the job with the bookmakers, the former Celtic player is now the Manager of Norwich who are flying high in League One at the moment and heading to the Championship. Other names being linked with the permanent job at Parkhead are Mark McGhee who has seen his stock rise in the past couple of years and John Hughes who has been doing a good job at Hibernian for some time now.
