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."
