Lennon honours friend Stan
Neil Lennon has again paid tribute to his friend and former team-mate Stiliyan Petrov after announcing his retirement from the game.
|"He was a fine footballer and enjoyed a magnificent career at Celtic and Aston Villa" - Neil Lennon|
"It's very sad that Stiliyan has announced his retirement from football," Lennon told Celtic's official website. "He was a fine footballer and enjoyed a magnificent career at Celtic and Aston Villa, as well as representing and captaining Bulgaria on many occasions.
"First and foremost, of course, is his health, and the news earlier this year that Stiliyan is in remission was a great boost for everyone," he continued. "I'm sure that his characteristic determination, along with the fact he's surrounded by a loving family, will ensure he's a success in this next stage of his life."
