Celtic boss Neil Lennon rules himself out of Scotland job

Celtic boss Neil Lennon feels the next Scotland boss should be a Scottish tactician as he ruled himself completely out of the job.


The Northern Irish tactician, whose current contract at the Parkhead club runs out in the coming summer, has been connected with the position following the exit of Alex McLeish on Thursday.


Berti Vogts, a German, and former FIFA World Cup winner is the only non-Scot tactician to have been Scotland boss.


The 47-year-old Lennon said there are a lot of good candidates in the running and it is a prime role still.


Lennon believes the role is for experienced tacticians, and that even though he has been a coach for over nine or 10 seasons, club football is his priority.

The Scottish Football Association has also frozen ticket fees for fans attending the clash for the third term running.


The Hoops, who knocked out Aberdeen by 3-0 in the last-four, are close to a treble treble as they edge close to their eighth back-to-back Scottish title.

The trouble followed the Hoops 2-1 Victory over arch-rivals Rangers at Parkhead, which moved the side a step closer to an 8th back-to-back Premiership title success.
