Celtic manager

Major behind-the-scenes developments at Celtic will have manager Neil Lennon worrying about his future at the club, according to Danny Mills.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former England defender insisted Lennon will not quit the club despite the growing pressure surrounding him.

Football Insider revealed earlier this week the Hoops’ recruitment chief Nicky Hammond is facing a huge battle to keep his job as the club’s hierarchy assesses the damage of their disastrous campaign.

Dermot Desmond is also set to hand his son Ross a more hands-on role in the club’s board with senior figures set to quit or be forced out.

Asked by Football Insider whether developments behind-the-scenes will have Lennon looking over his shoulder, Mills said: “Without a doubt.

“Neil Lennon, he’s not daft, he knows he’s at a very, very big club. He knows he has to get results and if results aren’t going your way you’re going to be under pressure.

“Any manager in this day and age, especially if you’re at a big club and not getting results, you’re under severe pressure.

“That’s just the way of the world. That’s how it is.

“I don’t think it’ll change his mentality, it won’t change anything that he does, he’ll just keep doing what he does, keep working as hard as he can.

“He’ll wait for someone else to make that decision because he’s certainly not going to walk away.”

Lennon is under increased pressure after the Bhoys’ disastrous trip to Dubai forced them to field an understrength team in their 1-1 draw against Hibs on Monday night.

The visitors’ last-minute equaliser means Celtic have slipped to 21 points behind league leaders Rangers with three games in hand.
