NEIL LENNON says he’s starting to get the itch again after leaving Hibernian last month under mysterious circumstances.

The Celtic Legend and his assistant Garry Parker left the club with their contracts being honoured in full by the Easter Road side. During his time at the Edinburgh club, the Irishman got them promoted and helped them to a top half finish last season, narrowly missing out on the second spot.

This season was going as well for Neil, with so many fundamental personnel changes and something has gone on behind the scene which nobody seems willing to talk about at the moment.

Speaking about managing again, the former Celtic captain believes he will get back in the dugout and it’s only a matter of time.

“I’m approaching ten years as a manager, I’m well over 400 games in the dugout now. I’ve got plenty of experience, I’ve learned a lot.” Lennon told SunSport.

“I still feel I’ve got plenty to offer. At this moment I’ve got time out. But I will look for a new challenge eventually.

“It’s only been a couple of weeks. I know from past experience it’s usually about a month before you start getting the itch again.

“But at this time of the season I don’t envisage anything short-term that will get me back into management.”

Neil has shown himself to be an excellent manager over the past ten years, and there will no doubt be offers in the summer. The Celtic man was famously interviewed to retake the Celtic job after Ronny Deila had left the building before Brendan Rodgers came in.

Perhaps a coaching job at Celtic?
