Celtic boss Lennon: 'I could be here for the next 20 years...or not'

Neil Lennon says his future is such that he could still be the Celtic manager in two decades' time or be out this time next year.

The 42-year old Northern Irishman is in negotiations regarding a new deal with the Hoops but knows that football is such a cut-throat industry that absolutely anything can happen.

"I don't look that far ahead, I only look one season at a time," he said.

"I could be at Celtic for the next 20 years, I could be here for the next year, I don't know.

"As long as I keep getting the buzz out of it that I do, and as long as Celtic want me, then I will be here.

"Even a week is a long time in football.

"It is a precarious job as a player, but it is even less secure as a manager.

"It is going to be very difficult to replicate what we did last season. We set a really high bar, but that is the challenge that lies ahead."
