Neil Lennon could make return to England or Scotland after Omonia Nicosia axe

Neil Lennon could return to management in England or Scotland following his surprise loss to Omonia Nicosia less than a week after the Cypriot side’s 1-0 defeat by Manchester United in the Europa League.

The former Northern Ireland midfielder was twice Celtic manager and has also coached Bolton Wanderers and Hibernian.

The 51-year-old will now be on the lookout for a new position after being sacked just hours after the Cyprus First Division loss to Nea Salamis.

Lennon joined Omonia in March, guided them to the Cyprus Cup in May and defeated Ethnikos Achnas to secure Europa League football that season.

In European competition, Lennon mastered impressive performances against Real Sociedad and Manchester United. Domestically, however, the club slipped to seventh place in the table.

A statement from the club said: “We inform you that we have reached an agreement with Mr Neil Lennon to end our association.

“Mr Lennon took the technical lead of our team at a difficult time last March and managed to take us to cup victory and then historic qualification against KAA Gent and entry into the Uefa Europa League groups where we came close historical results against Real Sociedad and Manchester United.

“Unfortunately, continued competitive instability and significant point losses in the Championship are the main reasons that led us to end our partnership.

“Mr Lennon has written his name in the history of Omonia and deserves the respect and appreciation of all of us.” Neil Lennon could make return to England or Scotland after Omonia Nicosia axe
