Celtic assistant manager Johan Mjallby expects Neil Lennon to remain at Parkhead because the lure of a domestic treble is far too strong for him to leave.

"He works for a club he loves where he has spent so many years" - Johan Mjallby
The Swede believes the opportunity for Lennon to join Jock Stein and Martin O'Neill as the only Celtic leaders to claim the treble in the club's proud 125-year history would override the prospect of any new challenge further south.

"I would not be surprised if there is interest in him, but I would be surprised if he was not here next season," Mjallby told the Glagow Evening Telegraph. "You need to remember, Celtic is a massive club. If we went to England we'd be among the top four due to our supporters and financial income.

"Here you have a chance to qualify for the Champions League each year, more of less, if you win the league," he continued. "It's a question for Neil what he wants to do in the future and what he's looking for in his career, but I'm quite sure he's very happy here. He works for a club he loves where he has spent so many years."

Celtic virtually seal title

Celtic are so close to a fifth straight league title following a 3-1 victory at Hearts.

Striker Colin Kazim-Richards earned them an early lead cancelled out by Abiola Dauda after the break.

However, Patrick Roberts and Leigh Griffiths later seized upon defensive slips to both restore and extend the advantage respectively.

The Hoops had the ball in the net on twelve minutes through Callum McGregor after Neil Alexander parried from Roberts. But an offside flag was raised.
