Neil Lennon is about to take his first press conference under his latest role as interim manager of Celtic Football Club. Lennon will face two massive games in the shape of Hearts tonight and Hibs at the weekend.
Neil Lennon hasn’t decided if he will be in the dugout for tonight’s clash. The new boss feels a lot has changed since he was manager nine years ago. The Irishman was also full of admiration for Brendan Rodgers. He said Brendan has left big shoes to fill.
On staying past his interim post, Lennon said,
“That is not up to me and for now it’s not on my mind. It’s about the club, it’s not about me or Brendan leaving.”
It’s unthinkable that Lennon will not dive into the dugout tonight, he is a hands-on manager and it’s hard to think if he has a choice he will sit in the stands tonight at a volatile Tynecastle. The new manager joked about getting a good reception tonight from the Hearts crowd.
