CHAMPIONSHIP strugglers Bolton have appointed former Celtic boss Neil Lennon as the successor to Dougie Freedman.
Lennon, 43, had been out of work since his summer resignation from the Glasgow club, where the Northern irishman won three top-flight titles and two Scottish Cups during his four-year tenure.
Ex-Crystal Palace boss Freedman left Bolton last month after almost two years in charge, following a dire start to the season that has left the Trotters bottom of the table.
Bolton said: “The club are delighted and excited to appoint Neil Lennon. He brings with him experience at the highest level and an infectious enthusiasm to take the club forward.”
