One of the details pertinent to the formal appointment of Neil Lennon as manager will be the appointment of his assistant and other coaches. John Kennedy is certain to remain part of the staff, it remains to be seen if Neil’s former assistant at Celtic and Hibs, Garry Parker, will join him again. Damien Duff will also be waiting on a steer on where his future lies.
A more innovative appointment may be called for this time. Five years ago, the initial plan was to appoint Ronny Deila as assistant. I would like to see Celtic come up with an innovative appointment this time.
