Neil Lennon feels so absolutely privileged to have followed legendary names Jock Stein and Billy McNeill and led Celtic to a glorious domestic double.

"It's very special to join those two icons at the club" - Neil Lennon
The Northern Irishman had already won the double three times as a player before achieving it as a manager last season. Added to that was progress to the last sixteen of the Champions League.

"To win the double as a player was great but to win it as a manager is just fantastic." Lennon told Celtic's official website. "It's very special, personally, to join those two icons at the club - that's what you do the job for. It was special playing, but this means so much more to me on a personal level.

"When I got the job I wanted to follow in their footsteps," he continued. "We're progressing well now, that's the double on the back of a great European campaign."

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.
