Scotland boss Levein talks up Celtic's Lennon

Scotland manager Craig Levein believes Celtic boss will be the Scottish Manager of the Year.

The Hoops gaffer has done a brilliant job in getting his side back to the top of the Premier League table after an average beginning to the campaign and Levein says he could well get his vote for this season's award.

"Everybody has their own viewpoint. Last year I voted for John McGlynn because I knew what his budget was and how well he had done considering all Raith Rovers' problems," Levein said.

"I think Neil Lennon has an outstanding chance this year because of the difficulties he's had and how he has worked his way through the problems.

"Going back to their game at Kilmarnock earlier in the season, they were 3-0 down at half-time and the guillotine was being sharpened.

"That's how close it was and he said himself that his head was on the chopping block.

"For me, to go from that point to where he is now is a miraculous turnaround.

"It's the improvement in the squad and in the results and the way they are playing."
