Neil Lennon Reveals Cheeky Scott Brown Comment After Cup Triumph

Neil Lennon Reveals Cheeky Scott Brown Comment After Cup Triumph

Celtic have won the Scottish Cup, making history by claiming an unprecedented 'treble treble'. It was not an easy afternoon for Celtic, but a double from Odsonne Edouard was enough to hand them a 2-1 win over Hearts.

It was a massive day for the club, and for interim manager Neil Lennon. He was brought in after the departure of Brendan Rodgers with the sole goal of completing the domestic treble, and he has done that without much trouble.

His future is far from certain, however. Lennon is in the frame to take the job on a permanent basis, but nothing has been decided as of yet.

Speaking to Premier Sports after the game, he said he had done everything that had been asked of him. He also mentioned a very cheeky Scott Brown comment made after the win.

You don't have to ask me that question. I cam in to do a job, and I've done it now. You get a sense of personal pride from that, but this wasn't about me.

It was about (the players) and getting them over the line, because this is something that we will probably never see again...

Browny just said to me there "I've got you the job again for the second time", but we don't know.

If I do get offered the job, there has to be a lot of reassurances on my side as well. The style of play for example, I'd like to change that a bit.

There will be personnel changes regardless of who comes in. It's the end of the cycle. That's not to say they can't win another treble, but it's the end of the cycle for some of these players.

It will be interesting to see what develops over the next couple of weeks, but Neil Lennon could hardly have done any more.
