No Celtic revolution for Neil Lennon


Share this story

Neil Lennon says he will not be making any major changes at Celtic after replacing Brendan Rodgers as manager until the end of the season.

Lennon, 47, led Celtic to three titles and two Scottish Cups during his first spell in charge at Parkhead between 2010 and 2014.

The Northern Irishman left Hibernian at the end of last month and has now stepped into the void left by Rodgers, who has agreed a switch to Premier League club Leicester City.

Celtic have a chance to complete a domestic treble this season, having already landed the League Cup, and Lennon says his focus will be on continuing the work Rodgers has begun rather than trying to implement any big changes.

“There’s a chasm to fill with Brendan leaving,” Lennon told Celtic TV.

“He’s done a remarkable job, but I’m here for the club. The club comes first as do the players. I want to bring as much success during my time here as I possibly can.

“All I want to do is carry that on – it’s not broken and I’m not coming in and looking to revolutionise anything.”
