Bolton Wanderers boss Neil Lennon: I am still in touch with Celtic’s Scott Brown

Celtic U-20s

Bolton Wanderers manager Neil Lennon left Scottish Premiership giants Celtic at the end of last season.

Bolton Wanderers manager Neil Lennon has told The Sun that he still keeps in touch with some of the Celtic players.

Lennon stepped down from his position as the Celtic manager at the end of last season following four successful years.

During his time at Celtic Park as manager, the 43-year-old won the Scottish league title three times and the Scottish Cup twice.

One of the key players during those four years was Scott Brown, who is the current Celtic captain.

The 29-year-old midfielder established himself as one of the best players in Scotland, and Lennon has revealed that he is still in touch with him.

“Broony calls me every now and again and we talk about this and that,” the former Northern Ireland international told The Sun. “It’s good to catch up with him and we wish each other well.

“But I get texts from a few of the other boys too. They were very good for me when I was Celtic manager and I’ll always have a high regard for them.”

Lennon’s departure from Celtic was emotional, and it seems that he has maintained contact with those who helped him succeed at the Scottish giants.

The Bhoys have moved on from the former Nottingham Forest midfielder, though, as they recently won the Scottish Premiership title.

Celtic have also won the Scottish League Cup this campaign, as Lennon’s successor Ronny Deila has made a wonderful start to what could be a long career at the Hoops.
