Neil Lennon has once again talk about the possibility of managing in the Premier league, which is unlikely to reduce any rumours linking him with Norwich City. The Premier league outfit are heavily linked with a managerial change in the coming weeks, as they are thought to be unhappy with the performances of Chris Hughton.

The team has found it difficult to get results under the former Newcastle United assistant manager. Lennon has had a fantastic record of managing teams at the top end of the table.

However, he has not spoken openly about the interest from Norwich. Instead, he says that it would be great to manage Celtic in the Premier league. The possibility of including the top teams from Scottish football into the Premier league has been mentioned for a long time. The relegation of Rangers to the third division of Scottish football has reduced those headlines, but the occasional talk still comes up. Lennon has said that it is no disrespect to Scottish football that he wants Celtic to move to the Premier league, but he believes that such a move will bring recognition to the club, which are on course to winning the league title once again.

It has not been a major problem since they did not face any challenge from other clubs for this title.

“Yes. Do I think it will happen? I hope. That’s not being disrespectful to the Scottish game, I’d just like to see it happen. Our reputation has been enhanced in the past couple of years and people are talking about the football club in a good light again on the European scene. That augurs well. People are talking as if I can just walk out of Celtic and get a job in England. It doesn’t work that way,” said Lennon.
