It is always a risk appointing a new manager and with a Rebel Treble and 10 in a row in the headlights for me it's a risk that Celtic don't need to take. So give Neil Lennon a 3 year contract to see it through. He did the first 3 titles and got us to the last 16 of the Champions League which is more than some people with better suntans achieved.

And here are some of the players signed by Neil Lennon:

Leigh Griffiths
Joe Ledley
Emilio Izaguirre
Fraser Forster
Virgil van Dijk
Anthony Stokes
Charlie Mulgrew
Victor Wanyama
Kris Commons

Just the thoughts of the Airdrie jury.

It happily take Lennon permanently but it depends on how ambitious lawwell and Desmond are this time round. If they have any ambition and want to pursue someone like rose or bielsa then great. But if they go down the lesser road which is more likely imo then we could do a lot worse than lenny.

We should be aiming as high as we can not settling for someone who can do a job.

Lennon wasn't in total control of signing but it seems people are forgetting just how poor a lot of our signings were at that time.

There were more bad signings than good id say.

For me it's simple. There's no point bringing in a high profile manager and not backing him properly.

If we go high profile it must be accompanied by a different transfer policy.

If we are going with the cheap options again we are better with a manager who knows how to set up defensively.

Kev83 unless it's another marquee manager I would rather see Lennon than someone or similar stature.

There was a lot of bad signings back then, but I also remember John Parks inability to identify a striker was a huge problem.

Problem we have got is not only do we need manager appointed, we also need backroom including Congerton replaced to tackle imminent issue of loss of centre defence, right back and loan players returning.

It's a bit of a mess that has to be sorted promptly.

We shouldn't be settling for anyone, we should aim as high as we possibly can. We've got a lot to offer any manager we go for, trophies, fame and glory if they get us to the 10. I'm behind lenny 100% and I'm grateful he's back but I do want better.

The only problem with a marquee manager is that they will want a transfer budget to match and l can't see Celtic matching it. Yes celtic do and have spent money but the level some of these top managers look for are much more than Celtic are willing. Remember up to eddy the highest we paid is 6 million ( if l am wrong apologises ) .
