Celtic's Lennon lands third Manager of the Month award in four

Neil Lennon has been awarded the Scottish Premier League Manager of the Month for February.

The Celtic boss has scooped his third award in the past four months as his Hoops storm towards a first Premiership since 2008.

Celtic won five league matches in the second month of 2012, scoring 13 goals and conceding nil, and also beat Inverness in the fifth round of the Scottish Cup.

Hoops assistant Johan Mjallby said Lennon was a deserved recipient of yet another award as the Glasgow giants continue on in their rich vein of form.

"It's great for all of us, and it proves that we're doing things in the right way," Mjallby told the club's official website.

"We always knew we had the players, we never panicked, which is probably the main reason we're sitting here top of the league and still in the two cups, and with everything to play for.

"It was very important that we didn't change much, despite the poor run of results we had earlier in the season.

"We stuck to the things we believed was the right path to success, and it was a case of getting the players to work a wee bit harder for each other."
