Celtic fans were left spinning by the news that Neil Lennon is about to be appointed as interim manager.
This morning there was the usual speculation linking Brendan Rodgers with a move down south, something that supporters have become used to over the last couple of seasons.
Dramatically things changed around 9am when word emerged that the Irishman was in the Midlands and ready to talk terms, at 10am Celtic confirmed that permission had been granted for Leicester to talk to Rodgers.
Almost at the same time speculation started that Lennon could be on his way back to Celtic with the ex-Hibs boss cancelled a media appointment in the Middle East.
There seemed something inevitable about how the story was being played out- picking up momentum when Rodgers was filmed inside the King Power Stadium.
Peter Lawwell gave Sky Sports a brief interview in which Lennon was mentioned as well as other candidates, no sooner had the interview been screened than Sky Sports announced that a statement confirming Lennon as interim boss was expected early this evening.

It’s fair to say this has worked out pretty darn well for Neil Lennon, probably can’t believe his luck. Leaves Hibernian under a cloud, and one month later strolls into Celtic with a great chance for a league-cup double.
