Celtic: Fans react to statistic about Neil Lennon’s second spell in charge - Celtic

Plenty of Celtic fans have been reacting to a statistic posted on Twitter outlining the impressive record of Neil Lennon during his second spell in the Parkhead dugout.

Having had a four-year stint as Hoops manager earlier this decade, the 48-year-old returned to the club in February on an initial caretaker basis after Brendan Rodgers left to take charge of Leicester (as per BBC) and he was given the job full-time at the end of last season.

Celtic’s game against Aberdeen on Saturday is the 50th since Lennon replaced Rodgers and, as noted by @AgentScotland on Twitter, things have worked out very positively for him in that time.

He won 10 of his 14 games in caretaker charge in 2018/19, guiding them to the Scottish Cup and sealing the Premiership title as the Hoops completed a third consecutive domestic treble.

In 35 matches since his full-time appointment, Lennon has won 29 and led them into the knockout rounds of the Europa League as Group E winners, as well as retaining the Betfred Cup for a fourth consecutive triumph.

The decision to give him the job permanently was criticised by some of the Hoops faithful at the time, but these Celtic fans on Twitter have been hugely impressed by the manager after seeing his record since February:
