Lennon Heads To Bolton - Not Tyneside!

Each to their own, but I think I'd rather have Pardew than that guy, who seems to carry trouble wherever he goes.

He is famous for his spats with Alan Shearer during their playing days when the Toon striker knocked 'seven bells' out of him.

Bolton have announced his appointment as their new manager ... and good luck to them.

The 43-year-old, who has been out of work since leaving Celtic at the end of last season, replaces Dougie Freedman, who left Wanderers by mutual consent at the beginning of the month.

The club have also announced that Johan Mjallby and Garry Parker will join Lennon at the Macron Stadium.

Bolton statement: "Following a process of first and second interviews with a shortlist of initial candidates, a unanimous decision was taken by Eddie Davies, Brett Warburton and Phil Gartside.

"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."
