Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell has praised the fighting qualities of Neil Lennon as he backed the title-winning manager to be a success at Parkhead for years to come.

Lennon enjoyed the feeling of being Clydesdale Bank Premier League champions for the first time as a manager on Saturday following a highly eventful two years in the post.

"I am so proud of him and so thrilled and delighted for him," Lawwell told Celtic TV's Huddle Online programme. "He has come through a very, very turbulent two years. The pressures of being Celtic manager alone are immense."
