GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — Celtic wrapped up a domestic treble for an unprecedented third straight season after beating Hearts 2-1 in the Scottish Cup final on Saturday.
Immediately afterwards, Celtic offered manager Neil Lennon the job permanently. Lennon said there’s “a good chance” he’ll accept.
Lennon was asked by Celtic to take charge in February to the end of the season when Brendan Rodgers left to join English Premier League team Leicester.
In his second stint with Celtic, Lennon helped them win the premiership and League Cup titles.
Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell said Lennon would have been offered the job whatever the result of the cup final. He wanted to end speculation now. He hoped to work out the contract details this week.
