Neil Lennon resigns as Celtic manager

Neil Lennon has ended his stint as Celtic FC manager following his side’s poor form.

Lennon has resigned with his side 18 points adrift of Rangers in the Scottish Premiership.

Neil Lennon took charge for a second spell in February 2019 when Brendan Rodgers left for Leicester City.

He led the club to two titles, two Scottish Cups and a League Cup.

Neil Lennon in hard time

Neil Lennon found his Celtic side are well behind their Glasgow rivals in their bid to win 10-straight titles.

He was slumped to defeat at struggling Ross County on Sunday which triggered his resignation.

“We have experienced a difficult season due to so many factors,” Lennon said in the statement.

“Of course, it is very frustrating and disappointing that we have not been able to hit the same heights as we did previously.”

“I have worked as hard as ever to try and turn things around.”

“But unfortunately we have not managed to get the kind of run going that we have needed.”

“I have always given my best to the Club and have been proud to deliver silverware to the Celtic supporters.”

“The Club will always be part of me. I will always be a Celtic supporter myself and I will always want the best for Celtic.”

“I would like to thank so many people at the Club who have given me so much.”

“I would also like to thank my family for their love and support.”

“I wish the Celtic supporters, players, staff and directors nothing but success for the future,” Lennon added.

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has admitted Neil Lennon’s departure as Celtic manager came as no surprise.

Lennon has been on his last legs for much of their nightmare season.

Assistant manager John Kennedy will take interim charge of the team.
