Mjallby confident Lennon will stay

Published Add your comment

Johan Mjallby expects Neil Lennon to stay at Parkhead "for the long run" despite current speculation about the Celtic manager's future.

The build-up to the home Clydesdale Bank Premier League clash with Hamilton - where Kris Commons scored twice in a 2-0 win - centred on the Irishman who had been given 24-hour surveillance at his home after a suspicious package addressed to him was intercepted.

"He hasn't told me that he has had enough," said Mjallby. "He is a strong character. He is in this job for the long run."

He added: "He can certainly take the pressure so I would be very surprised if that happened.

"He is upbeat, in a good state of mind and fairly happy.

"After Wednesday's game all we did was concentrate on this game and he is very good at that.

"All the other stuff behind the scenes is unacceptable.

"I know he is probably used to it but it shouldn't happen anyway."
