Neil Lennon and his controversial departure from the Hibernian job sent shockwaves around Scottish football. Not so much for the fact he had gone, more so the way he left.

Lennon departed Easter Road after a massive fallout with the Hibs hierarchy in January. It’s only February and already Lennon might be returning to Scottish football.

Brendan Rodgers has stunned Celtic, with the Herald reporting Rodgers is on his way to Leicester City. The Foxes are on the hunt for a new boss after Claude Puel was sacked earlier this week, and the Celtic boss is set take over at the King Power Stadium.

The Sun have reported that former Hibs boss Lennon will be the man to take over at Parkhead until the end of the season.


The Hibs faithful are having a field day with the news on Twitter.

What is of more intrigue is that Lennon’s first game in charge could be a return to Easter Road with his former side, should he land the job before this weekend.

Whilst some fans will want to remember the good times they had under Lennon, others will only be interested in lamenting the way Lennon departed Easter Road.

The former Hibs boss is a decent manager. He took them back out of the Championship, and turned them into top six regulars once again. The Hibees played some really good football in his reign as boss.

If Lennon does rejoin Celtic, expect fireworks at Easter Road this Sunday.
