Neil Lennon Doesn’t Seem Fussed About Big Names Being Linked With Celtic Job

Neil Lennon doesn’t seem fussed about big names being linked with the Celtic job.

The Northern Irishman faced the media this afternoon ahead of his side’s Scottish Cup semi-final clash with Aberdeen on Sunday.

And among the many things he discussed was the subject of his future at the Hoops.

Lennon only replaced Brendan Rodgers as caretaker manager in February and it was confirmed a decision would be taken on the permanent manager come the summer.

Celtic are on the brink of securing their eighth Scottish Premiership title and can take a step closer to a treble treble if they beat the Dons this weekend.

But there’s still a lot of speculation surrounding Lennon’s future as a number of big names are linked with taking on the role this summer.

Andre Villas-Boas, Roberto Martinez and Rafa Benitez have all been mentioned with the job.

While Northern Ireland national team boss Michael O’Neill has also been linked with taking over.

But Lennon doesn’t seem too bothered by the links:

If Lennon gets past Aberdeen this weekend and Celtic manage to beat either Inverness or Hearts in the final then you would imagine it’ll be virtually impossible for the club’s board to replace him.

But the supporters appear keen on a more high-profile name to take over and that may be the road Celtic end up going down.
