Lennon focussed on Celtic

Published Add your comment

Celtic manager Neil Lennon says he is happy at Celtic amidst speculation he could be ready to leave the SPL in favour of a job in the Premier League.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, the Northern Irish coach said he is focussed on helping Celtic win the Scottish Premiership and progress in the Champions League:

"Being linked with other jobs can be a little unsettling because there is no substance to it. It is what it is... speculation.

"It doesn't detract from the focus I have on the job at Celtic but it is nice to be talked about when these jobs come up."

Lennon has two Scottish league and cup doubles with the Glasgow side, and had a good campaign in the Champions League last season - capped with a victory over Spanish powerhouse Barcelona.

Despite saying his attention is on his task in Scotland, Lennon hasn't ruled out a move in the near future - saying he would need a big offer to consider leaving the Hoops:

"It would take a heck of a lot to leave Celtic. There is a lot to give up here."

As a player, Lennon captained Celtic and Northern Ireland, making over 600 professional appearances for club and country.

Lennon has been linked with the vacant Sunderland position, as well as a position as Ireland manager - despite his Northern Irish heritage.

Celtic take on Kilmarnock on Saturday, with a win helping the Bhoys overtake Inverness to first place in the Scottish Premiership.
