NEIL LENNON insists he is “quite comfortable” in his Celtic manager’s role, despite fierce criticism during a massively frustrating season.

The Hoops boss is planning a fifth successive Premiership victory when Aberdeen visit Parkhead for tomorrow’s 6pm kick-off.

Lennon is adamant he is not dwelling on the ongoing review while fans eagerly awaited an update from chairman Ian Bankier who has informed them the process is continuing as they look to avoid “hasty decisions that we might regret”.

The 49-year-old Irishman, who has seen the champions beat Kilmarnock (4-0), Motherwell (2-1), St Mirren (4-0) and St Johnstone (2-1) in quick succession, is now preparing for the challenge from Derek McInnes’ struggling Pittodrie outfit.

With the clamour for news from within Parkhead, the gaffer conceded: “That’s natural every season, regardless whether the club announced a review in December, you are always being reviewed.

“You are never secure in your role as a manager, anyway, especially when you have been through difficult times.

“But I am quite comfortable with the way my position is at the minute and until that changes I will give my best every day.

“I haven’t taken any notice of it , really, the only time I think about it is when you guys bring it up. It has not affected my work or thought processes at all.

“It is a new thing for me to go through a process like this. I haven’t experienced it before.

“I can’t tell you if there is going to be definitive answers that the supporters want or not.

“At the minute, I am just carrying on from day to day and game to game.”

However, Lennon, speaking to the Daily Record, added: “The onfield results have been disappointing and that’s something you are looking to rectify between now and the end of the season.

“In terms of the finances, we are not immune to the difficulties of the pandemic, but we are still quite strong and robust.”
