Lennon eyeing Celtic success after signing new deal

Celtic manager Neil Lennon says it is time for the Glasgow giants to get back on the winners list.

The 39-year old yesterday penned a new 12-month contract with the Hoops and is looking to immediately end a three-year Scottish Premier League drought.

"We want to bring success to the club and reward the commitment which our supporters continue to make. We want to provide our fans with entertaining, attacking football, but ultimately we aim to deliver silverware," he said.

"Work begins now on striving to bring domestic trophies to Celtic Park and on having some success in Europe."

And Lennon admitted his delight in signing a new contract with the Parkhead outfit.

"I am absolutely delighted to agree this new contract," he added.

"I've had ten great years with Celtic and I hope to enjoy many more.

"I will be doing everything I possibly can to ensure we bring our fans more success.

"I have been speaking to Peter Lawwell over the past few weeks and we are both delighted to move forward together.

"Peter and the board's vision for the club is the same as mine.

"I said when I was appointed manager that we wanted to re-ignite Celtic Park and make it the place it should be - one of Europe's finest and most atmospheric arenas.

"There is no question this happened.

"There were numerous occasions last year when the fans' unique backing played a crucial role and I know that we can build on this for next season.

"Myself, the board, my management team and all my players will be doing all we can to ensure that our fans have a team they can be proud of."
