Celtic's Lennon gushes with pride at becoming fourth three-peat manager

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has spoken of his immense pride at winning a third straight Scottish title.

The Hoops secured the 2013/14 Scottish Premiership last week when beating Partick Thistle 5-1 at Firhill, making Lennon just the fourth man to produce a three-peat for the Glasgow giants, which prompted words of humility from the Northern Irishman.

"I'm in very esteemed company," he told this week's Celtic View. "When I took over four years ago, I didn't envisage where I would be today.

"I have a great network of support with my background team, and the support of the board. It's a whole team effort. I am the front of the club. The way the club is run at the minute, we are in fantastic health.

"I am very proud. It was a fantastic way to cap off winning the title. I am so proud of the team and the style of football that they try and play."

In winning a third consecutive title, Lennon joined Willie Maley, Jock Stein and Gordon Strachan as the only mean in Celtic's history to achieve the three-in-a-row feat.
