Celtic interim manager Neil Lennon has been in charge for four games since replacing Brendan Rodgers. He has done well, with three wins and a draw, but some performances have left a bit to be desired.
It is not yet known if Lennon will take charge of Celtic on a permanent basis next season. However, a series of games over the next month should provide a club.
Here, we look at three games which could determine Neil Lennon’s future at Celtic:
1. CELTIC V RANGERS (31.3.19)
Neil Lennon’s first Glasgow derby since 2012 will no doubt be a fraught occasion. The Hoops at least go into the game with a 10 point lead at the top of the table. The two games between the teams so far this season have seen the home side emerge victorious. It would not do Lennon’s job prospects any good if that record changed. An emphatic win could see him emerge as the favourite of the vacancy though.
2. ST MIRREN V CELTIC (3.4.19)
This match could be a real test for the Hoops. Coming only three days after a Glasgow derby, and against a team battling to stay in the league. The Hoops recently struggled against relegation candidates Dundee, and a similar performance against St Mirren must be avoided. Hopefully it will turn out to be another three points on the road to eight in a row.
3. ABERDEEN V CELTIC (14.4.19)
Arguably the most important game Lennon will take charge of. The Hoops will be big favourites to defeat Derek McInnes’ side in the Scottish Cup semi-final. However, Celtic could only draw with the Pittodrie side when the teams clashed in the league recently. The Hoops have won the last five competitions they have entered – Lennon won’t want to be the manager that ends that record.
