Neil Lennon helped guide Celtic to the treble-treble on Saturday and his reward was the offer of the permanent manager’s job.
Celtic announced that interim manager Neil Lennon has been offered a permanent contract after completing the treble-treble on Saturday.
Victory over Hearts in the Scottish Cup final with a brace from Odsonne Edouard saw Celtic complete a domestic sweep for the third consecutive season for the first time in their history.
Lennon replaced Brendan Rodgers – who departed for Leicester City – in February when the club had already won the Scottish League Cup, but he guided them to Scottish Premiership success before this weekend’s triumph.
And with the 47-year-old only under contract until the end of the season, Celtic confirmed that they had offered Lennon the job on a full-time basis.
However, in a short statement on Twitter, the club did not reveal whether Lennon would take the opportunity.

This is Lennon’s second stint as Celtic boss, with his first spell – from 2010 to 2014 – taking in the first three titles of their ongoing run of eight successive triumphs.
Rafael Benitez, David Moyes, Andre Villas-Boas and even Jose Mourinho have been linked to the post at Celtic Park.
