Lennon and Dickov in New Jobs

Former City favourites Neil Lennon and Paul Dickov both have their feet under the manager’s desk today…

Lennon, who was the midfield-engine of Martin O’Neill’s City side, was officially unveiled as the new manager of Celtic this morning, having been appointed caretaker manager in March following the sacking of Tony Mowbray.
“The challenge is to try to unite the support again. What I want to bring is the thunder back. I want this place rocking again.” Lennon said.
Celtic chairman John Reid explained the delay in appointing the former Northern Ireland international.
“We considered, we debated, we maintained dialogue with Neil throughout that. On every occasion our head brought us back to where our heart had started, we came back to Neil Lennon.”

Meanwhile, in the less salubrious surroundings of Boundary Park another press conference was naming Paul Dickov as player/manager of Oldham Athletic.
The striker, who was twice signed by Leicester in 2002 and 2008, commented: “I know it’s going to be hard but I want to succeed; everything I’ve done in my career has been by giving 100 per cent.”
