Lennon cannot guarantee Celtic stay after lifting Cup

Celtic boss Neil Lennon was able to finish the season with a smile on his face after winning the Scottish Cup. Ki Sung-yueng opened the scoring in the 32nd minute with a wonderful drive and Mark Wilson's shot in the 75th minute, which deflected off Motherwell skipper Stephen Craigan, put the Parkhead men into an unassailable lead.

Charlie Mulgrew's driven free-kick with two minutes remaining brought an even more positive end to the Irishman's first season as permanent boss - which, to say the least, has been troubled.

Speaking after the game, Lennon told Sky Sports 2: "I will sit down with the board hopefully this week or next and discuss if I'm the man to take the club forward or not.

Captain Scott Brown said of Lennon: "Hopefully he stays, I want him to stay, all the Celtic fans want him to stay."

Goalscorer Ki said: "It's an unbelievable performance from all the boys. We are a little bit disappointed because we didn't win the league, but before the game we said we would play for the fans and play for ourselves so we finish the season with a big trophy."
