Lennon set to lock horns with Advocaat as Celtic meet AZ Alkmaar

Celtic interim manager Neil Lennon is looking forward to taking on former Rangers boss Dick Advocaat when AZ Alkmaar travel to Glasgow next month.

Advocaat will bring the Dutch side to Celtic Park on Wednesday, April 21 for a friendly match that is free to season-ticket holders because the Hoops did not receive a home draw in the Active Nation Scottish Cup this season.

Lennon, whose first game in charge following the departure of Tony Mowbray ended in a 3-1 Clydesdale Bank Premier League win over Kilmarnock, believes AZ will provide a good opportunity to see what he has at his disposal.

“I'm sure this will be a great occasion at Celtic Park and it will be a real test for us against good European opposition,” said the former Northern Ireland international. “AZ won the Dutch championship last season and are in good form at the minute, so I'm sure it will be an entertaining and competitive game for the fans that come along.

“I came up against Dick Advocaat as a player when he was manager at Rangers.

“He is vastly experienced as a coach throughout Europe and I am looking forward to taking on one of his teams on again — this time from the dugout. Since I took over as manager, I've not had many chances to see the players in competitive action, so this match against AZ provides me with a great opportunity to do that. It also gives me the option of fielding some of the other players in the squad.”
