Lennon hopes to make it back in the SPL after winning the Scottish Championship announcing "this will look good on my CV".

Didn't mention this on his CV.

 

Bolton Wanderers

Lennon was announced as the new manager of Bolton Wanderers on 12 October 2014, signing a four-year contract. He won his first game in charge 1–0 against Birmingham City at St Andrew's stadium, although he was sent to the stands in the 81st minute after an altercation with referee Mark Hayward caused by Lennon leaving his technical area before Craig Davies's penalty was saved. Lennon's first three months in charge saw Bolton rise ten places from bottom of the league up to fourteenth; a spell that included an eight match unbeaten run and four consecutive clean sheets. Bolton reached the fourth round of the FA Cup and took Liverpool to a replay before conceding a last minute goal to lose 2–1 and go out. Things didn't go well for Lennon thereafter, with Bolton winning only one of their last 11 games of the season, and Barry Bannan and Neil Danns being suspended by Lennon for off-field indiscipline. Bolton did however succeed in avoiding relegation, finishing 18th in the league.

Bolton struggled at the start of the following season, and by October 2015 were lying bottom of the table with only one win in their first eleven league games. Lennon maintained confidence in his ability to improve Bolton's fortunes, stating "I didn't realise quite how tough it was going to be but I have got faith in my own ability and I believe we'll turn things around." By the end of November 2015, Bolton had gone on a run of twelve games without a win, and remained bottom of the Championship. At this time, the club announced that their squad had not been paid this month "due to a short-term funding issue" in a statement which came hours before their 1–1 draw with Brentford. In that game, Bolton striker Gary Madine was seen on television mouthing an insult towards Lennon, although the manager played down the incident afterwards, stating "I don't know what he said. He's a Geordie, I can't understand him! It was probably reciprocated!" Bolton continued to struggle and, with the club at the bottom of the table, Lennon left by "mutual consent" on 15 March 2016.

 

Welcome back, we await your footballastic maestro.

Pity the refs!!!

Hang on Loyal,before you have a go at the ex Celtic captain, manager and NI internationalist, Bolton were bottom and virtually bankrupt. He had no money - I think they were £130m in debt.  When he arrived the same players that were there, he organised and coached went from bottom to middle of the table. However he was forced to sell his best player and the result was the team plummeted.

 

The man had absolutely no chance in the circumstances.

 

He has failed where others have failed and got Hibs back in the top league. No mean feat but he was well backed by his Board who knew they had employed a very good passionate young manager.

 

What is your agenda bringing up the Bolton experience?

I think the Bolton manifesto speaks for itself Chappy, tried to make it down South in a team which could have been saved, wasn't up to it. Came back home to a Hibs team who were certain of coming back up (then again).

Wee will see how he comes against Rangers Celtic Hearts next season.

seriously Harry Houdini could not have saved that team.

If you have a dislike for the guy because of your own prejudies then you should just come out and say it. You wont be the first or last

OK , I come out and say i don't like Lennon.

Believe me, the guy was a cunt (thug) as a player, and he hasn't changed.

Bovver merchant always looking for a fight but when things break out always the first to shit off.

Scott Brown is the same. Sure he wouldn't be up for a square go.

2 Cunts.

For me Lenny (even though I also think he is a little cretin) is actually proving himself to be a pretty good manager

 

PS- he doesn't mind what people think of him, it like me......lololol

Not at all, i stand by what i said.

Next season is looking to be the best in Scottish football for the past 5 years or so.

At one time or another, if things don't go as planned Lennon will flip it.

I don't think he will be up to managing against the OF over the course of a season.
