[Although Celtic cannot win the league on Sunday after being held to a scoreless draw by Hibs last weekend, they can close to within a point of the title and manager Neil Lennon said his troops are eager to seal a third successive domestic treble in McNeill’s memory] With this in the background, it makes it even more significant. The players will be highly motivated on two fronts now. We’re a club in mourning. Billy McNeill was Celtic. He was an icon, a hero. My image of Billy will always be him stood on that podium in Lisbon, this Adonis in a green and white shirt holding the cup. I can’t put into words how big a loss he is for this club

[Celtic title win Neil Lennon’s ‘toughest’ job yet] It’s 11 games unbeaten but it doesn’t feel like it at times, with some of the criticism that comes at us,” Lennon told Sky Sports. But you have to ignore that, stay focused, and they’ve done an amazing job, the players. It’s been really, really tough. It’s been the toughest piece of management I’ve had to do,” added the 47-year-old, who won three league titles when he previously managed the Hoops from 2010 to 2014. I know on the outside people think it looks easy but it’s been difficult going in on my own. There was a lot of discontent around the club and a bit of agitation but the players have helped me and I’d like to think I’ve helped them. It’s a real privilege to be here as interim manager or any kind of manager on championship day. It’s very special

[Lennon paid tribute to his predecessor Rodgers, who won back-to-back titles in just under three years at Celtic Park, and credited his players for keeping their cool in a week when they attended the funeral of club legend Billy McNeill] ‘s a wonderful moment for the club and great moment for the players and the supporters because they’re the most important people. The players were fantastic once again. They give me the heebie jeebies sometimes with the way they play and take chances. I have to pay tribute to Brendan. I have to pay a huge amount of credit to him for this title success because of the foundations that he’s built here. I was lucky enough to carry it on so it’s a great moment for me personally and for my family. It just felt right this week. We kept really calm, with all the emotions this week of Billy’s funeral. There’s a lot of negativity at times surrounding us and I’ve had to listen to a lot of fake news, but the players have done really well

[Neil Lennon has revealed that Celtic are in talks with rumoured Arsenal target Odsonne Edouard over a contract extension, while praising him as a top-class striker] There are discussions at the minute with his [Edouard’s] representatives. Ultimately he’s a player we want around. He’s a fantastic player. He’s really blossomed over the last couple of seasons. He had a magnificent season this year and we want to keep him. It’s as simple as that. We’re doing everything we can to keep him here for at least another season anyway. I think he is [happy]. I think he’s got a fantastic relationship certainly with me and my backroom team and his team-mates. You can see how much the supporters appreciate him as well. I think that’s reciprocated. He’s grown into a top-class striker. Of course, there is going to be speculation around a player of that quality. But we’re comfortable at the minute with the position we’re in with him
