Celtic manager Neil Lennon has left the Glasgow club.

A source to The Daily Record newspaper said that:

“It’s a sad day, but Neil has been talking to the club for some time about his situation, he feels he needs a fresh challenge and a break from the strains of this job. It happens with every manager, it was the same for Martin O’Neill and Gordon Strachan, eventually the time arrives when it is best for all concerned to move on.”

Rumors are that Lennon is being tipped for the jobs at West Bromwich Albion and Norwich City. The Scot has been in charge of Celtic for almost four years. During his time at Parkhead, Lennon has led Celtic to three league championships in a row and into the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League as well as winning the Scottish Cup on two occasions.

An official statement is expected later today from Celtic FC.

Meanwhile, Henrik Larsson is currently the favorite to take the job at Glasgow Celtic.

    Running scared before Newco comes back to the SPFL?

      Rangers, in my opinion, are going to have a tough time if they think they are just gonna stroll through next season.

      • Marc says:

        I agree. They will have a tough time in the Championship next season. With Aberdeen playing well under McInnes and using their Europa money to buy some key players to fill in their holes maybe not next season but the season after the Old Firm dominance in Scotland will be over.

    Why wouldn’t David Moyes be interested in this job? Hois rep took a serious hit at United and Celtic could help him regain some of his reputation that was lost. A perennial league champion and Champions League next year, it’s a chance for Moyes to taste some success and rebuild his bruised ego

    Why not Spurs?

  4. Mufc77 says:

    I’m sure neil Lennon will love the fact you called him a Scot.

  5. Mufc77 says:

    The Celtic job is made for David Moyes. Champions league experience every year and a ex player the fans can get behind.

    gaffer any news on spl rights here in the states for next season??

  7. Martin J. says:

    I doubt Lennon will take the WBA job. I don’t think he wants to take a job in the Premier League now. The Norwich job is more likely as he can work in the Championship with a club just relegated from the EPL and try to take them back up. Just my sense of what he might do.
