Neil Lennon took charge of his first training session of his second spell as Celtic manager on Friday morning ahead of their Scottish Cup quarter-final against Hibernian.

The 47-year-old finally got some time on the training pitch with his team as he prepares to return to his old club on Saturday in what should be a thrilling encounter.

He was appointed as interim manager following the shock exit of Brendan Rodgers to Leicester and was victorious in his first match back in charge of Celtic with a stoppage time win over Hearts on Wednesday.
