Celtic's Lennon open to future Premier League move

Neil Lennon admits he would one day consider a Premier League job if it ever came his way.

The 41-year old Northern Irishman is in his third full season as Celtic manager and after leading the Glasgow club to the Round of 16 in the Champions League, is gaining a fair bit of attention.

Lennon admits he is extremely happy in his current role but would certainly ponder any offer that might ever come from a top flight English club.

"Who knows? I love what I do here and obviously I've got a great feeling and affinity with the supporters and the club," he said.

"But you just never know where football will take you.

"You can't look too far ahead in football because you never know what's around the corner.

"It's just funny how football changes so quickly. I'm aware it can change again. You are never comfortable in a manager's job. It's such a precarious job, you know we're two games from a crisis.

"I'm ambitious obviously and maybe one day, if I'm still good enough, a Premier League team might shine their eyes at me and it will be something to consider. "But I'm very happy here at the minute, I have to say."
