Neil Lennon has dismissed reported linked him with the manager’s job at Fulham as ‘noise’.

The Scottish Sun recently disclosed that the relegated Premier League side had Lennon ‘on their radar’ as one of the candidates to take over at Craven Cottage.

But the interim Celtic boss seems to have ruled out the possibility of a move to London.

“It’s just noise” he proclaimed to the Scottish Sun. Lennon also revealed that he isn’t interested in the vacant Scotland manager’s job, following the exit of Alex McLeish.

It is no surprise to see Lennon dismiss any notion about taking any other jobs when he is still involved with Celtic.

All he will be concentrating on right now is getting the points that are required to win the title for the Hoops. As he says though, he can’t stop the speculation, such as the link to Fulham.

However, you would imagine that more than anything Lennon wants to become the next permanent boss at Celtic Park.

It is still too soon to know yet if Lennon’s wish will come true. But by denying any interest in other jobs, he is showing that all his focus is on Celtic.

That will please the Hoops board and the rest of the staff and supporters at Celtic Park.
