Neil Lennon

Where is Neil Lennon now?

All of Neil Lennon’s Premier League experience came at Leicester City in the mid to late nineties before he moved to Celtic where he enjoyed unfounded success.

After a brief return back to England with Nottingham Forest and then Wycombe Wanders, Lennon retired from playing in 2008 after he was offered a coaching role at Celtic under Tony Mowbray.

When Mowbray left the club, Lennon took over as caretaker manager and was given the role on a full time basis in 2010.

In May 2014 after four successful years at Celtic winning three league titles and two Scottish Cups Lennon announced his departure from the club.

Neil Lennon was back in football in October 2014 when he was appointed manager of struggling Championship side Bolton Wanderers.

After a nightmare 18 months at the club with the club facing bankrupty as well as struggling on the pitch, Lennon left by mutual consent after the new consortium led by ex football Dean Holdsworth decided that they wanted to bring in their own manager.

In July 2016, Lennon was part of the BBC’s pundit team for their coverage of Northern Ireland games in Euro 2016.

It wasn’t long before Lennon was back in football, and he was appointed the new manager of Scottish Championship side Hibernian in June 2016.

He also took Garry Parker with him as part of his coaching team, having already worked with him at Celtic and Bolton.

An extremely successful first season for Lennon saw his team promoted to the Scottish Premier League as champions having missed out in the play offs the previous two seasons.

In May 2017, Lennon revealed that he had suffered from a bout of depression during the title-winning season but managed to get through it with help from the LMA (League Manager’s Association).

He had previously suffered from mental health issues during his playing days.
