NEIL LENNON IS back in management after over a year out of the game, with the former Celtic boss appointed head coach of Cypriot side Omonia Nicosia.

Lennon replaces former Rangers and Manchester United defender Henning Berg at the club, signing a contract through to summer 2024.

Omonia won the Cypriot First Division last season but failed to make the cut in the top six this season, and are currently involved in a six-team relegation round.

Lennon left Celtic in February of last year, with the club trailing Glasgow rivals Rangers by 18 points in the Scottish Premiership table at the time. 

The former Celtic midfielder – who also had spells in charge at Bolton and Hibernian – won five trophies during his second stint as manager at Parkhead.
