Celtic skipper Scott Brown believes Neil Lennon would be a “great choice” to manage the club on a long-term basis.
Lennon enjoyed a winning start in his interim role when Celtic beat Kilmarnock 3-1 on Saturday in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.
The former Parkhead captain stated his desire to retain the post on a permanent basis immediately after replacing the ousted Tony Mowbray last week.
“If you ask all the lads, he’s a leader,” the Scotland midfielder said.
“He has been there and done it all, and the players all respect him as well, so he would be a great choice.
“There was a lot of pressure on him in the first game but it was a good start. We played good football and looked an attacking team that was going to score goals.”
