Celtic have confirmed the appointment of Neil Lennon as the club's new permanent manager.

Lennon took charge on an interim basis after Brendan Rodgers opted to leave his post to take over at Premier League side Leicester City in February.

Former Celtic midfielder Lennon subsequently steered them to a successful Scottish title defence, as well as completing the 'treble-treble' by beating Hearts in the Scottish Cup final.

Lennon, who was Celtic manager between 2010 and 2014, has been given a 12-month rolling contract.
