New Bolton Wanderers boss Neil Lennon has admitted that he faces a challenge to turn the club's fortunes around this season.

The 43-year-old was announced as Dougie Freedman's successor at the Macron Stadium on Sunday, and Lennon feels that he has the players to lift Wanderers from the bottom of the Championship.

"I've got a big job on my hands, but I'm very excited," Lennon told reporters. "There is a good core of players here within the squad."

Lennon won three Scottish league titles in four years as Celtic manager before he stepped down earlier this year.
