Celtic manager Neil Lennon insists that it would take a "heck of a lot" to leave the Scottish Premiership club.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has insisted that he doesn't lose any focus at Celtic Park when he is linked with a move to the Premier League.

Lennon was linked with the vacant role at Sunderland, but the Northern Irishman has dismissed it as speculation and says that he isn't in a rush to leave Scotland.

The 42-year-old told Sky Sports News: "Being linked with other jobs can be a little unsettling because there is no substance to it and it is just speculation.

"It doesn't detract from the focus that I have on the job at Celtic but it is nice to be talked about when these jobs come up.

"However, it would take a heck of a lot to leave Celtic. There is a lot to give up here."

The former midfielder has been in charge of Celtic since 2010.
