Video: Celtic boss halts press conference to answer call from journalist's wife

Neil Lennon is hardly known for his happy-go-luck persona but he certainly showed his lighter side during a press conference following Celtic’s 4-1 win over Hearts on Saturday.

The Celtic boss can often be found scowling and berating his players on the touchline but he took the chance to show that he is game for a laugh during his post-match presser – although had he been on the losing side during the match at Celtic Park the conversation may have taken an altogether different course.

One journalist had opted to use his phone to record Lennon’s post-match thoughts, only for his wife to ring, presumably to check if he would be home in time for dinner.

Lennon decided to pick up the call, much to the amusement of the assembled reporters in front of him, only for the journalist’s wife ‘Sharon’ to hang up.

The former Northern Ireland international jokingly berated her for interrupting his press conference when she rang back a second time, only for Sharon to offer up what appears to be a pretty sharp rebuttal judging by the former Leicester midfielder's face.
