Glasgow Celtic star Callum McGregor has backed Neil Lennon to be appointed as permanent manager of the Hoops this summer.

The 47-year-old has been serving as Bhoys boss on an interim basis since February after Brendan Rodgers controversially left the club in order to take charge of Leicester City.

Since arriving at Celtic Park, Lennon has yet to lose a game and has won seven out of ten.

Celtic are on the verge of winning their eighth successive Scottish Premiership title. They can also complete a domestic treble by defeating Hearts during the Scottish Cup final, which will be played at Hampden Park on May 25.

Currently, Hoops fans are divided as to whether Lennon should be appointed to manage the club on a full-time basis for a second time.

There are many advantages which Celtic will get if they do appoint Lennon. He is already familiar with the club’s structures and so will not need time to adapt.

In addition to this, he is already a proven manager. During his previous stint with the club as a manager which was between 2010-2014, he won three League titles and two Scottish Cups.

Some may argue that Celtic were not the dominant force that they are now during Lennon’s previous stint managing the club. However, it is important to realise that he managed the club during a period in which Rangers were far stronger than they are now.

“He has fitted in amazingly well with the boys and not too much has changed,” McGregor told Sky Sports. 

“I think it was a case of him trying to stabilise the club and he has done a great job.

“We are sitting here with three four weeks to go and still in the hunt for two trophies.”
