Neil Lennon: Nowhere like Parkhead

Neil Lennon: Nowhere like Parkhead

The Irishman's achievements reverberated around the football world after goals from Victor Wanyama and Tony Watt earned the Hoops a stunning 2-1 win at Parkhead.

Celtic now have seven points from four games and could secure a place in the last 16 of the Champions League with victory against Benfica.

Lennon has already been mentioned as a future Premier League boss but he is adamant no other club in the world could offer him what he experienced on Wednesday.

The victory followed just 24 hours after the club marked its 125th anniversary with a mass at St Mary's Church in the Calton district of Glasgow.

"Would I get a better night than that anywhere else in football, I doubt it very much," he said.

"It is what makes the club unique, there is something special about the club on a European night and it manifested itself in all its glory on Wednesday.

"The church service was a very special occasion and made me think about the history of the club more, the founding fathers of the club, and what it means to so many people, not just here in Glasgow but all around the world.

"There was a great ambience and I got an inkling that there could be something special in the air for Wednesday night and it was a very special couple of days.

"But it will not be up to me, it will be up to the board whether they want me here or not. They know what this club means to me, it is a good fit for me.

"I have a good relationship with Peter (Lawwell, chief executive) and Dermot (Desmond, majority shareholder) but that doesn't last forever. But we are going in the right direction."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
