Celtic interim manager Neil Lennon has admitted that he feels that he is more ‘mellow’ than he was in his first spell as Hoops manager.

Whilst Lennon waits to hear from the Celtic board about his future at the club, he has been reflecting on the difference between his first tenure at Celtic and now.

“I’m not as aggressive and feel sometimes that I’m holding back, that I’m not being natural. But sometimes it is good to be mellow” he admitted to the Herald.


“Would I change back? Like being the Tasmanian Devil? No, no. Those days are long gone.”

A sensible move

Lennon does seem to have matured from his first spell in charge of the Hoops. Significantly, during the fracas at the end of the last Glasgow derby, he was nowhere to be seen, which is the sensible move.

It is obvious that Lennon wants to become permanent Celtic manager again. Perhaps that is why he is toning down his behaviour.


You have to say that so far Lennon’s new demeanour is working. The Hoops have yet to lose a game that he has been in charge of.

We don’t yet know if Lennon will be Celtic’s next manager. However, he is going about things the right way, and his reaction to setbacks is certainly part of that.
