Former Celtic boss Martin O’Neill has backed Neil Lennon to continue his success after leaving the Scottish champions.

“He has had the experience of managing what I believe is one of the best clubs in the world” – Martin O’Neill

The 42-year-old is looking for a “new challenge” having successfully guided the club to a hat-trick of league titles and two Scottish Cups in four years at Parkhead.

“He has had the experience of managing what I believe is one of the best clubs in the world,” Republic of Ireland manager O’Neill told BBC Scotland. “He has taken that on and that will stand him in great stead for the rest of his career.

“Obviously, I know him particularly well because I signed him twice as a player, once to Leicester City and once to Celtic, and he did exceptionally well for me in both spells,” he added. “He’s had a very good time at Celtic, particularly the year where they did brilliantly in the Champions League.”
