Lennon Reveals Dermot Desmond Talks, Says Speculation About Other Managers is ‘Nonsense’

Celtic‘s interim manager Neil Lennon says he’s been told by the club’s majority shareholder Dermot Desmond that any speculation surrounding other manager’s taking over at Parkhead is nothing more than ‘nonsense’.

Lennon watched from the Hampden dugout this afternoon as his side coolly dispatched of Aberdeen 3-0 in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup, leaving the Hoops on the brink of a third consecutive domestic Treble.

However, over the last week or so, we’ve told you how the likes of Andre Villas-Boas and Roberto Martinez have been linked with the manager’s job at Celtic, but Lennon seemed confident of landing the role on a permanent basis ashe faced the media after the full-time whistle today.

Moreover, speaking via the Daily Record, Lennon added on his current situation: “I just keep going, I have no idea.

“I spoke to Mr Desmond yesterday, I speak with Peter every day.

“There’s a lot of speculation about people being interviewed.

“They don’t do that sort of thing, they let me get on with the job and if and when they decide who gets the job then they’ll speak to the right person.

“It’s been a tough week, with the build-up and the speculation, we’ve dealt with it very, very well.

“I’m delighted, more than anything, with the level of performance today.”

With Celtic on the brink of securing an eighth straight Premiership title, and the League Cup already in the bag, the Glasgow giants stand on the brink of history – but is Lennon the right man to secure the Holy Grail of 10-in-a-row?
