Celtic boss plays down Norwich City link

Celtic boss Neil Lennon has looked to distance himself from speculation linking him with the vacant manager’s job at Norwich City, reports the BBC.

The Canaries made the decision to part company with manager Chris Hughton yesterday with just five games of the season remaining.

The club currently occupies 17th place in the Premier League, just five points clear of the relegation zone.

Lennon meanwhile has just celebrated another title success with Celtic, but claims he has no intention to move into Premier League management.

“It’s always flattering to be linked with jobs,” Lennon told the BBC’s Match of the Day 2.

“I think the Premier League is one of the best leagues in the world but I don’t want to be talking about that. I’m in a stable position at Celtic.”

Lennon recently picked up his third consecutive Scottish title, whilst the Northern Irishman has also won two Scottish cups in only four seasons in charge.

“The Scottish environment is obviously not as good as the English league,” he added.

“But I’m at at a great club and it’s a privilege to be their manager.”
