NEIL LENNON has told Celtic fans he has been given ‘no guarantees’ over his Celtic future even though he has been told by Dermot Desmond any talk of other managers being sounded out by the club are nonsense.

Celtic comfortably made their way through to the final of the Scottish Cup at the weekend by steamrolling an Aberdeen side hell-bent on playing a different sport from football.

The Lurgan born manager admitted the stress and pressure of the day knowing everyone was looking at him and his managerial prowess as he re-auditions for a job which was once his.

Every Celtic fan has their own opinion on who should be the next man to permanently replace Brendan Rodgers but you can’t take anything away from Neil Lennon right now. He has come in and steadied choppy waters when our former manager cut and run. The fact we’re still in a very good position is down to Neil Lennon and John Kennedy.

They shouldn’t be dismissed but Celtic must not rush their decision.

Speaking about the position going forward, Neil made it clear there were no guarantees set out by the majority shareholder.

“Again, I’ve had no guarantees, no reassurances, no promises. I’m here to do a job and I’m taking it game by game.” Neil told SunSport.

“I’m older now, I can take all the noise. Maybe 10 years ago I would have got upset or annoyed about it. But not now.

“These are class people I work for. I’ve worked for them before and know the way they work. So I know it’s just conjecture and speculation.

“They leave me to get on with the job which is obviously reassuring. But I didn’t need that reassurance anyway.

“There was a lot of pressure because of the significance of the game today.
