Neil Lennon
Former Glasgow Celtic head coach Neil Lennon's return to Celtic Park headlines this weekend's Scottish Premiership action.

Lennon, who is now in charge of Hibernian, enjoyed a fruitful spell with the Hoops before joining Bolton Wanderers.

Currently in second place on the log standings, Hibernian have won their last four games, to sit a mere two points off the summit following Hearts 3-1 loss to Rangers before the International break.

Celtic are three points behind the log leaders having recuperated from a slow start to the campaign. Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers is expecting nothing but a tough clash against Lennon and Co.

“I’ve been very impressed with Hibs," said Rodgers in build-up to the clash. "They never come to sit in and defend so it should make for a fantastic game.”

“Neil and his staff lost important players but have replaced them with very good players. Technically they are a gifted team.”

Elsewhere, Hearts will be aiming to bounce back to winning ways with victory at home to Aberdeen. Rangers are away to Hamilton Academical on Sunday.
