‘I don’t know’ – Key Celtic man’s honest answer when asked about his future

Glasgow Celtic manager Neil Lennon has addressed his future with the Parkhead club by saying that he does not know what the future holds.

The 48-year-old led the Hoops to their ninth consecutive Scottish Premiership triumph during the past season.

Celtic did face a stern challenge from Rangers, who looked strong during the first half of the season, but Steven Gerrard’s side started to eventually lose momentum during the second half of the campaign.

“You can’t get too far ahead of yourself. The 10 is at the forefront of all of our motivation, and Europe is a big carrot as well. Can we negotiate the Champions League qualifying rounds, get into the group stages and have a real go at that?” said Lennon as quoted by The Daily Mail.

“Where I am this time next year, I don’t know. I’m sure I’ll still have plenty of fire in the belly, no matter what the outcome of next season is.”

By the time the season was called off, Celtic were 13 points ahead of the Gers.

Nobody can really argue that it was fair to award the title to Lennon’s charges. 

Celtic will have an opportunity to win their tenth consecutive Scottish Premiership title next season.

It remains to be seen if Lennon will be willing to stay at the club next season.

On the one hand, he will truly establish himself as a Celtic legend if he stays with the Bhoys and guides them to the title. 

On the other hand, he is used to victory after having guided the club to five league titles. He won three titles during his first stint with the club before moving on in 2014.

Since succeeding Brendan Rodgers midway through last season, he has added a further two titles to his name. 

Lennon could thus be tempted to leave the Hoops if a new and exciting challenge presents itself to him.

An offer to manage in the Premier League could be something that is tempting to Lennon.

The Celtic boss has yet to manage in the English top-flight though he did manage Bolton Wanderers when they were in the Championship.
