McGregor urges Celtic to end managerial wait

10th April 2019, 15:10 by Simon Barlow

Callum McGregor has urged Celtic's board to make a quick decision over Neil Lennon's future.

Lennon has made no secret of his wish to land the job permanently since taking caretaker charge in February following the defection of Brendan Rodgers to Leicester City.

And McGregor has now revealed that Lennon has the support of the Hoops dressing room.

He said: "Obviously the club have to get the appointment right, whichever way they want to get it done.

"But the players, staff and everyone around the club want to know as soon as possible, so you have the continuity going into next season.

"Whatever the board decides, as soon as the players find out it calms everyone down. It gives the club a focus as the new season comes round pretty quickly.

"You only have three or four weeks off and then it's straight back into the big games again. The sooner it is done the better for everyone."
