FORMER Celtic boss Neil Lennon has admitted he misses “the buzz” after being out of work for four months following his departure from Omonia Nicosia.

The 51-year-old Northern Irishman also revealed he is in no rush to return to the dug-out with “nothing really tickling my fancy”.

Lennon’s second stint as Hoops manager ended two years ago in the midst of a wretched campaign that saw the historic bid for 10 in a row blown shortly after the turn of the year.

PRIZE GUYS…Neil Lennon and Man-of-the-Match Fraser Forster hold aloft the League Cup after the victory over Steven Gerrard’s Ibrox outfit at Hampden in December 2019.

It was a spectacular fall from grace for the gaffer and his players as they limped in without a trophy for the first time in 11 years.

John Kennedy took charge of the team for the remaining 10 games of the term following Lennon’s exit and, of course, Ange Postecoglou was announced as the new manager in June 2021.

Lennon, speaking to Football Betting, said: “I’m alright at the moment. There’s nothing really tickling my fancy.

“I’m looking forward to getting back home and looking again because you sort of start getting the itch after a while.

“I’ve had plenty to do with TV and consultancy work so you’re never really out of the game.

“You just miss the day-to-day stuff and obviously the buzz of matches.”

Lennon was axed by Cypriot club Omonia in October after seven months in charge.
