NEIL LENNON departed Celtic exactly THREE months ago today.
The Hoops boss ended his second managerial stint at Parkhead in the aftermath of another unacceptable defeat following the 1-0 loss to relegation-threatened Ross County in Dingwall.
It was just another inexplicable result in a season that collapsed after promising so much in the summer with the clubs preparing for their historic tenth successive title.
However, the stuttering championship quest came off the rails after the turn of the year by which time the team had already been knocked out of three other tournaments, the Champions League, the Europa League and the Betfred League Cup. The flop in the Highlands brought the inevitable outcome in a results-driven business.
SNOWED UNDER…Neil Lennon looks under pressure as Celtic toil to a 2-2 draw in Livingston in January.
The 49-year-old Irishman, who has been working in the media since his Hoops exit, is now planning a return to the dug-out and has changed agents, according to a report in the Sun on Sunday.
Lennon, who won three successive titles at Celtic before leaving first time around to be replaced by Ronny Deila in 2014, sees his future in England where he had a two-year stint at troubled Bolton before returning across the border to Hibs in 2016.
Of course, he answered the SOS to come back to the east end of Glasgow in February 2019 following Brendan Rodgers’ hasty switch to Leicester City.
Realistically, Lennon will acknowledge there is nothing for him in Scotland as he looks to further his managerial career. He was linked with Salford City earlier this month, as CQN reported, and there have been rumblings elsewhere at clubs outwith the top flight.
The managerial merry-go-round will be in full spin during the summer months and Lennon will be aiming to take advantage.
