Lennon loving Celtic role but knows future is not set

Celtic manager Neil Lennon loves his job but knows that in today's football climate, anything can change.

The Northern Irishman is almost three years into his role at Celtic Park and although he has achieved a fair amount of success so far, he is aware that being the boss on the green and white side of Glasgow has an expiration date.

"I am the manager of Celtic. Every day I get up and say it's a nice feeling," he said.

"Sometimes you pinch yourself, walking out in front of 60,000 against the Italian champions (Juventus), walking out at the Nou Camp (to play Barcelona) as Celtic manager, it doesn't get any better than that.

"Until things change I can't do anything about speculation.

"People are looking for things that aren't there. I don't know where I'll be in the future. I could be unemployed.

"I have a job to do here and am enjoying it. There are things about it that are difficult but in the main it's fantastic.

"However, I believe there is a shelf life for an Old Firm manager although you never know. Sir Alex Ferguson has been doing his job for 20-odd years under intense pressure.

"However, I don't have a crystal ball. I certainly don't take things lightly and think I can just get up, waltz away and take a job elsewhere."
