The fans demanded it and their prayers were answered as Neil Lennon has signed a 1 year rolling contract which will see him remain in the east end of Glasgow.
After weeks of speculation surrounding Neil’s future this deal has been struck and it is sure to keep the fans and players alike who have dubbed Neil as the Lurgan Lion and the man to take the side forward. The Celtic hierarchy will see this as the right move as Lennon has the respect of everyone at the club despite his off field traumas last season.
After a season of highs and lows Lennon will be eager to get his players back to Lennox town and prepare for the season ahead. Neil is currently in the market for a new goalkeeper and the possibility of a new rear guard will see the Celtic fans anticipate the season ahead with much delight. Standouts from last season like Izaguirre, Hooper, Brown and Kayal all look to be on board for next season. With a few additions at the back Neil could be assembling a real force in Scottish football.
Neil knows it will not be easy wrestling the title away from bitter rivals Rangers, but he must feel with the players at his disposal the time has arrived where he must deliver the title to club he loves so dear.
