Neil Lennon has been confirmed as Celtic's permanent manager on a rolling 12-month contract, the Ladbrokes Premiership champions have announced.

Parkhead chief executive Peter Lawwell revealed the Northern Irishman had been offered the post full-time in the wake of Saturday's William Hill Scottish Cup final victory over Hearts as the Hoops wrapped up the treble treble.

Lennon returned to the club he had previously served as captain and manager in February to pick up the reins after Brendan Rodgers quit to join Leicester, successfully guiding the club over the line as they wrapped up their eighth straight league title ahead of last weekend's Hampden triumph.
