Scott Brown was not the only one was briefly worried about Neil Lennon’s position in recent months. Neil has never particularly hidden his desire to work in England one day but when it became evident that there would be a few seats available in the English top flight, with the Everton job in particular becoming available, I am sure there were a few nervous twitches.
As and when Neil decides he is going to move on, Celtic will want to have a plan for succession in place, if not entirely executed. In May, when Neil was fielding questions about moving on, I doubt any succession planning had taken place. Some at the club would have been looking forward to a summer break and some player trading. The prospect of finding a new manager, with all the inherent consequences for trading, preseason planning and Champions League qualification, would have caused mild panic.
Always be prepared.
