Celtic’s Lennon not reading into Norwich talk

Celtic manager Neil Lennon says he is not paying too much attention to reports linking him with the Norwich City job.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon says he is not paying too much attention to reports linking him with the Norwich City job.

The Hoops boss has been the subject of speculation this week with reports suggesting that he could be the man to replace Chris Hughton at Carrow Road if the Canaries happen to sack their current boss.

Although Lennon is humbled by the talk, he has made it clear that he in no way covets the Norwich role as he is too busy focusing on the job at hand with the Glasgow giants.

“Norwich have a very good manager in Chris Hughton,” he said.

“I can’t do anything about speculation. It is always flattering but it would be wrong of me to make any sort of comment on it.

“Being a manager you can’t pick or choose where you go. I’m very lucky to be the manager of Celtic. It’s a privilege and I have done it for almost four years now so I’m just getting my teeth into it.

“I look forward to the challenges that lie ahead in the job I am in.”

Celtic currently sit on top of the Scottish Premiership table, 21 points clear of second-placed Aberdeen, ahead of Saturday’s trip to bottom side Heart of Midlothian.
