Celtic FC manager Neil Lennon is keen to guide the team to its ninth successive Scottish Premier League (SPL) title.

It is a feat not achieved since Jock Stein’s legendary Celtic side of the 1960s and ‘70s.

Lennon, who was recently re-appointed permanent Celtic manager, is looking forward to the 2019/20 campaign.

“It’s important for the club, so that means it’s important for me, the supporters and the players,” Lennon said.

“I’m going to try and bring nine, first and foremost, aligned with the domestic cups.

“Obviously we want to make inroads into the Champions League, which is a difficult thing to do, but not insurmountable," he added.

“Winning a treble is a very difficult thing to do. In my first season here as a player, we won the treble under Martin O’Neill and that was the holy grail.

"These guys have won three-in-a-row. We will endeavour to win every competition we go into, so we’ll take it from there.”

Lennon is in his second spell as a Celtic manager and he has won four league titles with the club.
