Lennon ends season on Hampden high

Neil Lennon ended a troubled season on a high at Hampden Park on Saturday as Celtic lifted the Scottish Cup with victory over Motherwell. It gave Lennon his first piece of silverware as Celtic manager after they lost out to Rangers in the league. It is also likely to result in a new long-term contract. "He's got a good future," said Dermot Desmond, Celtic's majority shareholder "He'll get a new contract; for a very long time." Lennon said of the 3-0 victory: "We love the game, we try to entertain and we try to win with a bit of style."
