A look at Neil Lennon's Celtic career in pictures

The Northern Irishman quit with the Hoops' bid to win a 10th straight title in disarray.

Neil Lennon has resigned as Celtic manager, with the reigning champions 18 points behind Rangers in the Scottish Premiership.

The 49-year-old, who returned to the club for a second stint in charge after Brendan Rodgers left to take over at Leicester in February 2019, had previously maintained he would not quit despite mounting pressure, with the Hoops' bid to win a 10th straight title in disarray.

Here, the PA news agency looks at the midfielder-turned-manager's Celtic career in pictures.
