Neil Lennon’s departure from Hibernian is set to be confirmed on Wednesday.

The Scottish Sun reports that the former manager’s exit will be agreed ‘by mutual consent’.

The former Celtic boss and his assistant Gary Parker were suspended from the club following an argument with chief executive Leeann Dempster.

Eddie May took charge of Hibernian for the recent 3-1 win over St Mirren in Lennon’s place.

Lennon’s time as Hibernian manager has certainly been full of incident.

He got the club promoted back to the Scottish Premiership in his first season in charge.

This was then followed by a highly creditable 4th placed finish last season, which saw the club qualify for the Europa League.

However, perhaps the signs that all was not well at the club were shown towards the end of last season.

Lennon disclosed that he was ‘considering his future‘ at Easter Road following a loss to Hearts in May.

He stayed at the club, but there has been a downturn in results this season.

The club currently sit 8th in the Scottish Premiership table.

Lennon can be pleased overall with the job he did at Easter Road.

Getting a promoted team into Europe at the first opportunity has to be applauded.

But perhaps the time was right for both parties to seperate, and that should be confirmed on Wednesday.
