Neil Lennon will remain in charge of Championship club Bolton following an internal club investigation into allegations made in a newspaper article.

Wanderers announced on Sunday that they would look into a report about former Northern Ireland inernational and ex-Celtic boss Lennon's private life.

Last night the club confirmed that, having concluded the internal investigation, Lurgan man Lennon would remain in his post at the Macron Stadium with the matter now closed.

A statement issued by Bolton read: "The club has dealt with the matter internally and acted accordingly, details of which will remain private.

"Neil Lennon will remain in charge of the first-team squad.

"The club will be making no further comment on the matter."

Bolton are currently bottom of the Championship, five points adrift of safety and face a trip to Rotherham, also in the relegation zone, on Boxing Day.

Lennon has had a tough job on his hands, with the Trotters £172.9m in debt and facing a winding up order over £600,000 of unpaid taxes.
