Lennon signal Bhoys exit
25 Apr 2007 - 12:50:54
Veteran midfielder Neil Lennon has confirmed that he will leave Celtic at the end of the season.
The 35-year-old former Northern Ireland schemer has enjoyed more than six years with the Bhoys, having previously made his name in England with Leicester city and Crewe Alexandra.
He told the club's official website: "Obviously, having been with the club for so long, it will be a real wrench to leave, but I have thought long and hard about this decision and believe that it is the right one.
"I feel it is right to go out on a high and given that we have just secured the league title for the second year running, I believe that this is the best decision at the best time.
"I have enjoyed my time at the club immensely. It was a boyhood dream to play for the club I loved and I am very proud to have achieved this."
Lennon has scored just three goals in 300 games for the Bhoys.
