Celtic reach decision on appointing new manager

Celtic are set to end weeks of speculation by unveiling Neil Lennon as their new manager on Wednesday. The Hoops have called a press conference for 11am at Celtic Park when they will present their new boss.

Press Association Sport understands Lennon will be at the helm after a successful spell as interim manager following Tony Mowbray's departure.

His lack of prior managerial experience is still an issue which is to be addressed, though, with an adviser set to be drafted in alongside him.

Reports suggest current Finland head coach Stuart Baxter will be that man, but his appointment will not be finalised until the exact details of his duties are set out.

Former team-mates of Lennon, Johan Mjallby, Alan Thompson and Garry Parker, are to make up the first-team coaching staff.
