Lennon needs the treble
Celtic caretaker boss Neil Lennon needs to secure the treble if he is to land the job permanently, according to Johan Mjallby.
The Swede says his former team-mate will probably have to win the Scottish Cup on top of the Scottish Premiership if he is going to get the job permanently at the end of the season.
The title is almost a done deal, but Celtic face Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup semi-final this weekend and Mjallby says Lennon will have to progress in that competition and win it if he is to be handed the reins full-time.
He told the Herald: "Neil knows he will have to secure the treble to have a chance of getting the job on a full-time basis.
"That's down to the board, though, and I'm sure they'll be contemplating other names.
"It would be difficult for them not to make him the manager if he completed the treble but it depends on how they look at the club going forward long term."
