Interview - Neil Lennon

Former Celtic boss Neil Lennon says he is going into "the unknown" after leaving the Scottish champions and admits he has no other job lined up.

The Northern Irishman, 42, led Celtic to three Premiership titles and two Scottish Cups during four years in charge, before resigning on Thursday.

Asked about his next move, Lennon told BBC Scotland: "I've no idea.

"Everyone's speculating about me walking from this job to another job and that's not the case at all."

Lennon had been linked with the managerial post at Norwich, which was filled by Neil Adams on Thursday, and at West Bromwich Albion, who are seeking a new manager after the departure of Pepe Mel.

Speaking at Glasgow Airport as he travelled to Lisbon for Saturday's Champions League final between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, Lennon said: "We'll see what the future brings. I'm looking forward to it.

"I'm going into the unknown a little bit with it but I'm very content with what we've achieved in the last four years.

"We've had a brilliant four years. It's been success on the field. It's been topsy-turvy off the field but it's never been dull.

"It's been a very, very exciting period in my life. I just felt the time was right now for something else.

"It'll take a bit of time to digest it. I'm content with the decision."
