Celtic interim manager Neil Lennon claims his future won’t be affected by the result of the Scottish Cup final.

The Northern Ireland coach took over as coach after Brendan Rodgers abruptly left Parkhead for Leicester in February, and has maintained the stance throughout his short time back that he would like the job on a permanent basis.

However, no decision on his future has yet been decided, with the Hoops focusing on achieving the triple treble, an accomplishment the club are just 90 minutes away from.

Speaking to BBC Sportscene, as reported by FootballScotland, Lennon believes that his long-term future at Paradise won’t be decided either way by the result in the Scottish Cup final, saying (when asked if it would):

No, I have been told that already by the hierarchy and I have no reason not to believe them.
