Celtic legend and Hibernian manager Neil Lennon has aimed a brutal dig at Rangers as their search for Pedro Caixinha’s replacement rumbles on into the second month.
The Light Blues sacked Caixinha in October but are yet to make any real effort to bring in someone else to fill in the Ibrox vacancy.
Many believe that the Glasgow giants have been unable to hire anyone due to a lack of financial backing, and that is why Lennon doesn’t believe he has the chance to make what would no doubt a controversial move to Ibrox.
When speaking on BT Sport Footballs official Twitter account on Sunday ahead of Celtic’s League Cup final against Motherwell, Chris Sutton was quoted as asking Lennon if he would take up the job at Rangers.
To which the Hibernian boss replied: “I don’t think they could afford me.”
Who should Rangers appoint as their new manager? ????@chris_sutton73: "Maybe someone like yourself, Neil…"

Lennon has already faced the wrath of Rangers fans already this season when he goaded the Ibrox supporters when Hibernian won there earlier this term.
The ex-Northern Ireland international was even investigated by the police for his actions, however nothing was to come of it.
Lennon’s managerial career has so far seen mixed results.
He won two Scottish league titles in his four years as Celtic boss, before moving to England with Bolton where he played a major part in their relegation from the Championship.
Since moving back to Scotland he has guided Hibs back into the Premiership by winning the second tier title last season.
In other Rangers news, Alan Brazil is stunned that the Gers have not appointed this experienced manager.
