Lennon: I would work for free02/03/2012 - 14:16:54
Neil Lennon claims he would consider working for nothing in order to safeguard a club he managed.
With Old Firm rivals Rangers in administration and trying to find a way to stay solvent, talks are on-going about the severity of cuts Ally McCoist may have to make to his Ibrox squad.
Amid all the speculation, one report suggested that the Light Blues boss is willing to work for no wages until the end of the season.
Lennon, at Celtic Park where he was picking up his Clydesdale Bank Premier League manager of the month award for February, was asked if he too would work for free.
“I have bills to pay and kids to feed,” said the Hoops manager.
“Would I do it? It would depend on the period of time that I would have to do it for and if I could get by then I would, yes.
“But I hope I never have to come into that scenario.
“I am not aware that has been put to Ally but he obviously finds himself in a difficult place at the minute.
“I don’t like the idea of administrators coming in and running football clubs, but needs must I suppose the way things have been handled and it should be a lesson to us all that even the biggest of clubs can suffer these financial penalties.”
