The Kenyan midfielder, this week named the SPL's young player of the year, has yet to sign a new deal with just a year of his contract to run, while his manager has been linked with the Everton job following David Moyes's switch to Manchester United.

Wanyama remains coy on his next move but believes club chiefs should do all they can to make sure Lennon stays put.

He said: "I just leave the club and my agent to sort everything out. You never know. We will see."

On Lennon, he added: "He has been great. I've learned a lot from him. He has put a strong team out there and he is still a very important manager for us.

"I would say he is one of the best managers I have had in my career.

"We have learned a lot and we have achieved a lot while I have been here. We are delighted to have him.

"There is no doubt other clubs want him. We all just want to see him stay here."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
