Ally McCoist has stated that Neil Lennon needs to continue what he is doing in order to get the Celtic job on a permanent basis as he claimed that Steve Clarke potentially getting the gig would be 'interesting'.
The Bhoys are yet to announce a permanent manager for next season and with Lennon currently in the Parkhead hot seat, he has a chance to prove his worth before the season draws to a close.
Speaking to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast Show on TalkSport (25/04/2019 at 7:55 am), McCoist shared that he was with Lennon at a charity gig as he seemingly backed him to get the job full-time.
"I was with wee Lenny the week before at a charity thing," McCoist told TalkSport. "All he can do is keep winning games and that's what he's doing. I watched the game against Hibs and I enjoyed it.
McCoist on if Steve Clarke was offered the job: "Yeh, I know. That would be an interesting one. I just think Neil can continue to do what he's doing and that's winning games. They are certainly going to win the title."
Since replacing Brendan Rodgers, who left for Leicester City in an abrupt manner, Lennon is yet to taste defeat in what is his second stint as Celtic manager.
His team are on the verge of securing eight Scottish Premiership titles in a row and they will be hoping to wrap up the treble-treble at the end of the campaign.
In order to create that historic moment, they must beat Hearts in the Scottish Cup final in May and victory at Hampden would only increase Lennon's chance of staying at the club beyond this season.
