Neil Lennon left Hibs under a cloud last month – but the former Hibs boss could be set for a sensational return to Easter Road as Celtic manager this weekend.

Reports claim Lennon could take the reins at Celtic Park to replace Brendan Rodgers – and it would give Hibs’ stars a great chance at revenge on their former boss.

While there are scant details about exactly what led to Lennon leaving Easter Road, there were suggestions of a row with Florian Kamberi and an “exchange” with club employees.

The two sides meet in the Scottish Cup and there will certainly be one or two who would love to kill off Celtic’s treble hopes with a win.

Lennon knows Celtic well after his time there as player and manager so shouldn’t have any trouble getting the Hoops up for the Cup clash.

However the possibility of putting one over on their former boss could prove to be too strong a motivator.

The Hibees have pushed Celtic on occassion this season so there’s a real possibility of Paul Heckingbottom’s side getting a result.

With Hibs having a trip to St. Johnstone to deal with first though, the possibility of revenge on Lennon will need to wait just a little longer.
