Lennon’s position at the club has been precarious in recent weeks, but the situation worsened after Celtic were knocked out of the Scottish League Cup by Ross County on Sunday.


Protests erupted outside Celtic Park following the game and the players had to leave the stadium under a police escort.



The pressure on the board has been mounting to sack Lennon and save Celtic’s chances of winning an unprecedented tenth league title in a row this season.


The 49-year-old held talks with the club hierarchy on Monday and it has been claimed that the discussions were positive.



Contrary to expectations, the Celtic manager still has the board’s backing despite some supporters demanding his head.


It has been claimed that Sunday’s incident outside the stadium has further hardened Celtic’s resolve to keep their faith in Lennon.



The board are now determined to see him turn things around and get their season back on track.


For now, it seems, Lennon will remain the manager when Celtic take on AC Milan on Thursday night.
