Lennon Flattered By Scotland Link
Written by RockSport on January 27, 2018
Hibernian head coach Neil Lennon says he is flattered to have been mooted for the Scotland job by Brendan Rodgers.
The Celtic boss says Lennon would be the ideal candidate to replace Gordon Strachan as national team manager.
Michael O’Neill this week turned down the opportunity to take the Scotland job and has agreed an extended contract with Northern Ireland.
“I’m not speaking from a personal point of view, but it’s a great job,” said the 46-year-old former Celtic boss.
“If an approach comes, and it’s a huge if, then we will deal with it accordingly but until then there’s no further comment,” the Hibs boss added.
“It’s very flattering from someone of Brendan’s stature in the game and I appreciate the sentiment, but I am the Hibs manager.”
