Former Hibernian and Celtic manager Neil Lennon has disclosed that he plans to return to club management.

Lennon has been out of work since leaving the Easter Road side in January. But he has vowed to return to the hot seat of management.

“It’s definitely still an ambition of mine to manage again, to coach again” he told the Scottish Sun.

““I think I’m a better manager now than I’ve ever been. No question”.

Lennon’s time at Easter Road was certainly full of ups and downs. He got the Edinburgh side promotion in his first season at the club. This was followed by a creditable fourth placed finish in the Premiership and qualification for Europe.

This season hasn’t worked out though, and Lennon departed after a poor run of results which saw Hibs in the bottom six of the league table.

Despite it not working out for Lennon in his third season with Hibernian, he did show enough in his first two seasons at the club to prove that on his day he is a very good manager.

He had good results against Hearts and both members of the Old Firm, which is always a plus for a manager outwith the big two in Scotland.

It will be intriguing to see where he goes next in his managerial career.
