Introducing: Neil Lennon is the perfect man to lead Celtic until the end of the season

Everything appeared to be going as well as it possibly could for Celtic.

The Bhoys appear to be on course to lift their eighth Scottish Premiership title, whilst the unprecedented treble-treble is still on the table.

However, that was all before Leicester City decided to part company with Claude Peul and knock on the door at Celtic Park for Brendan Rodgers.

The Northern Irishman, who has won everything possible with the club domestically, decided that it would be best to leave the club now and pursue a managerial career back in the Premier League with an exciting Foxes side at the King Power Stadium.

However, Celtic fans should not fear too much about what will happen over the course of the current campaign, as the club have acted quickly and smartly to ensure those treble-treble aims are still on the table.

Neil Lennon was reappointed as the manager on a deal until the end of the season, per The BBC, and there will not have been many other possible candidates that make as much sense as he does.

The former boss was hugely successful during his time at the club as a player and a manager, guiding them to three Scottish Premiership titles as he started them off on this journey of claiming ten in a row.

And, the fact that he was a free agent following his shock decision to leave Hibernian last month, would have made it a relatively easy and stressless appointment to make.

Clubs have looked to use familiar faces when they require a new manager during a campaign, with Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer being the most recent – which has brought a ‘feel-good factor’ to the club – who are clearly reaping the rewards.

That could be something that Lennon aims to bring to Celtic Park as he will want to continue Rodgers’ previous success and ensure the club he spent many years with continue to dominate Scottish football.

Having told talkSPORT at the start of the season that he didn’t ‘believe’ the ‘hype’, the Parkhead legend can prove he’s still got it.

Celtic fans – thoughts?
