  • Neil Lennon is Manager of 2012

    Neil Lennon is Manager of 2012

    By: Newsroom Staff on 21 Dec, 2012 16:13

  • NEIL Lennon has been named Manager of the Year by Sky Sports in their review of 2012. The Celtic boss won the SPL title last season, and has guided his team through two qualifying rounds and the group stages of the UEFA Champions League to reach the last 16, where they will face Italian giants, Juventus.
     
    And it’s in recognition of this magnificent achievement that he’s been named the Manager of 2012.
     
    Praising the Celtic manager, Sky Sports said: “In his first season as a Champions League manager, Lennon has guided Celtic to the last 16 of Europe´s premier competition despite having one of the smallest budgets.

    “Before a ball was kicked, Celtic´s chances of progressing were written off by many after being drawn against Barcelona, Benfica and Spartak Moscow.

    “But Lennon has confounded the critics by leading the Scottish champions into the knockout stages in style. He showed astute tactical nous in guiding the club to one of their greatest ever victories with the 2-1 success over European titans Barcelona at Celtic Park in November.”

    Congratulations to Neil Lennon, his backroom staff and his squad for a well-deserved accolade.
