After his mixed spell in charge of Bolton Wanderers, Neil Lennon is back in Scotland. Alan Stubbs opted to leave the recently crowned Scottish Cup champions for Rotherham United, not the most resounding vote of confidence in the Scottish game.

Neil Lennon has taken his place in Easter Road. He takes the role with Hibs in an odd place, having won the Scottish Cup (as everyone knows) for the first time in over a century but still mired in the Scottish Championship.

He became Celtic manager in 2010 followed the abject reign of Tony Mowbray. Celtic improved massively in his first season but they still fell short of Walter Smith's Rangers in the title race.


He subsequently led Celtic to three straight titles, aided by Rangers financial catastrophes. At Bolton, he enjoyed an early bounce lifting the team ten places in the League and eventually avoiding relegation in the 2014-15 season.

A shocking start to 2015-16 saw him leave late last year. Bolton were relegated at the end of last season.

Lennon is one of the TV3 stable of pundits for the Euros.
