Lennon left the Glasgow side in February after a string of poor results leading to Rangers winning in the Premiership title race.

He previously said: "I have always given my best to the club and have been proud to deliver silverware to the Celtic supporters.

"The club will always be part of me. I will always be a Celtic supporter myself and I will always want the best for Celtic."
