On social media on Wednesday, Celtic celebrated the fact that it had been 10 years since Neil Lennon was first appointed as Hoops manager, and began his managerial career.

There has rarely been a dull moment in those 10 years, as Lennon has had two spells in charge of Celtic, with spells at Bolton and Hibs in-between.
Will always be remembered for his time with Hoops
However, when it comes down to it, Lennon will always be remembered as a very successful Celtic manager. In his two spells in charge he has won a host of trophies with the club.
It will be interesting to find out what aspect of his managerial career Lennon is most proud of. If we were to hazard a guess, we would wager that the job he did last season – 2018-19 – would be right up there.
He took over a Celtic side which must have been reeling from the sudden exit of Brendan Rodgers to join Leicester City.
Lennon managed to get the group of players together, and drag them over the line to win both the league and Scottish Cup, and complete a third successive domestic treble.
Had plenty of success in both spells as boss
The Hoops boss has enjoyed plenty of success this season as well, winning the Betfred Cup and opening up a sizeable advantage at the top of the league before the lockdown began.
The Tweet from the club was well-received by some Celtic fans on social media. One supporter proclaimed that Lennon was ‘Mr. Celtic’, whilst another claimed that the Hoops boss was an ‘absolute hero’.
Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter as the Hoops celebrated the man who could lead the club to 10 in a row:
