Lennon won't quit Celtic over threats: Agent

Glasgow:

Celtic manager Neil Lennon will not walk out on the club despite receiving several sinister threats this season, his agent Martin Reilly said on Thursday.

Lennon, who is likely to face disciplinary action over last week's touchline bust-up with Rangers assistant manager Ally McCoist, has had bullets and a suspicious package sent to him this year.

However Reilly is adamant that Lennon will remain at Celtic Park and that quitting was not on the agenda.

"He was a winner as a player and he's a winner as a manager," Reilly told BBC Scotland's Sportsound programme. "As far as quitting as a manager goes, it's not in his nature."

No discussion about Lennon's future would take place until the end of the season, Reilly said.

"We will have these discussions at the end of the season, but all Neil wants to do at the moment is concentrate on his job," he said.

"He's got a contract to fight for, a six-month rolling contract, so he's got things like that to sort out in his life but he's got to put up with all this stuff off the park as well.

"He certainly hasn't spoken about quitting or walking out on the club, but I dare say it must have gone through his mind because it's certainly gone through mine."
