NEIL LENNON is the new interim Celtic manager until the end of the season and will take charge of the club immediately.
The Irishman has played for and managed the club before and knows what it’s all about.
He has answered the club’s SOS in their hour of need after Brendan Rodgers unceremoniously jumped ship in the past 24 hours.
“I am absolutely delighted to be named manager of Celtic again. This is a Club which has been such a huge part of my life already and it is an honour to be asked to return. ” Neil told the Celtic Website.
“I have given everything to Celtic as a player and manager already in my career and I am ready to do the same again. I will be doing all I can to continue the great work that has gone on in recent years.
“I am delighted that John Kennedy and Damien Duff have agreed to be part of my team. John will allow us to have important continuity and Damien will bring real knowledge and experience to the first team squad.
“I am returning to one of the biggest and best clubs in world football and I can’t wait to get started.”
Celtic’s next three games are monumental in the context of their season. Two trips to the capital, one against Hearts in the SPFL, then Easter Road in the Scottish Cup on Saturday night followed by a home game against Aberdeen.
Celtic fans are still trying to get to grips with the massive change in less than 24-hours. All the talking and nonsense will go to one side tomorrow as Neil takes charge of the bhoys.
