As quoted by BBC Sport, Lennon was fulsome in his praise of the team he used to manage, describing the record as “incredible”.

“It’s testament to the mentality of the players, the never-say-die attitude, and also the abundance of quality that they have in their squad as well,” he said.

“They’ve been imperious, really. Four trophies in a row – excellent. Incredible achievement.”
