Hibs boss Neil Lennon signs new deal

Hibs have today revealed that manager Neil Lennon has extended his contract at Easter Road.

The former Celtic gaffer has signed a new 3-year-deal with the Hibees, that commits his future to the club until 2020.

Lennon took over from Alan Stubbs last summer, after he left for Rotherham, and landed the Championship title in his season in charge.

He also guided the Hibs to the Scottish Cup Semi Final and a clash with Brondby in the Uefa Europa League.

Speaking to the official club website, Lennon said:

“I am delighted to have signed the deal. I’ve made no secret of my enjoyment of my time at Easter Road and my desire to stay on at Hibernian.

“All of the parts are in place to build a strong future. We have a strong group of players, we are seeing talented youngsters like Fraser Murray and Ryan Porteous force their way into first-team contention, and we have good, supportive people running the Club.

“The infrastructure is first class, it’s a great club, and now I want to do all I can to make it a successful one.”

Hibs CEO Leeann Dempster added:

“We are delighted that Neil wants to commit to the club. He is an ambitious guy, he wants to win silverware, and he brings that mentality with him. We look forward to working together to bring supporters more of the success they have enjoyed over the past two seasons.”
