Speaking to Soccer AM the Hoops boss revealed, like most managers, he has ambitions to lead a team in the English top flight.

Lennon, whose stock has risen during his near four-year reign at Parkhead - a period which has seen him deliver two titles, with another all-but secured, two Scottish Cups and a run to the last-16 of the Champions League - has recently been linked with Premier League strugglers Norwich.

"My ideal scenario would be if Celtic were to move to England," said Lennon. "To be in charge of them then would be perfect for me.

"But whether that would ever come about, I don't know. We all have ambitions to try different challenges, but those chances have to come up.

"It's such a precious job being a manager, there's so many good ones out of work at the moment and the lifespan in the job seems to be getting shorter.

"So you can't just say 'I am going to England to manage one day' because there is no guarantee that would ever happen. You have to make the most of what you have."
