Celtic manager not worried by other coaches being linked with his job

Celtic boss Neil Lennon says he is not worried by other coaches being connected with the Parkhead job on a long-term.

 

The tactician was appointed asboss on an interim basis until the end of the campaign when manager Brendan Rodgers left for Premier League club Leicester in February, and his team have won five games of their seven matches across all competitions since that time, with the two other games resulting in draws.

 

Although the club have moved 11 points ahead and clear of rivals Rangers in the Premiership log, and remain very much on track for a third treble on the domestic scene in three years, the reigning Champions have been connected with luring former Everton boss Roberto Martinez and former Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas to Celtic Park next term to replace Neil Lennon.

 

On Sunday, the Parkhead club face old foes Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup last-four – the same team they defeated in the League Cup final back in December – knowing a victory would take the side one step closer to the ‘treble-treble’ feat.

 

After their Scottish cup tie with Aberdeen, the Hoops have five Premiership matches left, and if they make it to the Scottish Cup final, Lennon boys will play on the 25th of May.

 

The SPFL has also announced some major dates for the 2019/20 campaign and also made public their intentions to retain the Ladbrokes Premiership New year break.

 

It was announced that all four Scottish League divisions will begin on the weekend of August 3, with the top tier league closing temporarily from December 30 until January 17.

 

The campaign will start with the group stage fixtures of the Betfred Cup in the middle of July and the round of 16 will again come alive on a weekend to prevent clashing with Champions League duty dates.

 

Dates for the Challenge Cup competition next will be confirmed soonest while game schedules for the 2019/20 Premiership season will be made public in June.
