NEIL LENNON has signed a new three-year contract at Hibs which will keep him at the Easter Road club until 2020.

The former Celtic and Bolton boss took over from Alan Stubbs in June 2016 and succeeded in his first season in charge in getting Hibs out of the Championship and back into the Premiership.

He also reached the Scottish Cup semi-final last season and was unlucky to lose that match to Aberdeen.

Speaking on the Hibs website Lenny was clearly delighted with his new deal.

“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.”

Leeann Dempster, the Chief Executive, at Easter Road was also rather pleased to have the deal agreed.

“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.”
