Ally McCoist reveals what conversations Neil Lennon will be having with Celtic board | Football | Sport
That’s according to former Rangers hero Ally McCoist.
Lennon was appointed Celtic boss once again after Brendan Rodgers left the club for Leicester at the end of February.
And although Lennon is on course to complete the triple-treble that Rodgers started, his future at the club isn’t certain.
Reports in recent weeks have suggested that Celtic could appoint someone new and that former West Ham manager Slaven Bilic would be interested in a move to Glasgow.
But McCoist is hopeful the decision-making process is well underway and that Lennon is aware of what’s going on.
“I would like to think, behind the scenes, Neil’s had the courtesy of being told what’s happening, he told talkSPORT‘s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast
“I told you last time I was on, it’s a massive, massive summer, particularly for the Old Firm.
“Obviously a lot of clubs will be doing business, but Rangers and Celtic in particular, I think, have got serious business.
“Probably particularly Celtic more than anybody, in terms of players coming in and out.
“I would like to think that whoever’s going to get the job will probably know and I think Neil deserves that respect.”
McCoist explained that it was right of Celtic to want to take their time of making a permanent appointment.
But he also stated that Lennon has to be included in all conversations.
“I fully expect them to win the cup and complete the treble, so I think from Celtic’s point of view, I get it they 100 per cent want to get the decision right to replace Brendan,” he added.
“But I would like to think that Neil knows what’s happening.”
Celtic have an important Scottish Cup final with Hearts to play this Saturday for the chance to complete an historic third straight treble.
