Lennon I’ve got to go back to move forward
St Mirren Hall of Famer Danny Lennon admits he expects some surprise around his decision to join Clyde.
Lennon returned to management at the start of this week following a year out of the game, by agreeing a deal with the League Two outfit.
He has coached the Saints to the League Cup in 2013 and has spent the majority of his career managing the Buddies in Scotland’s top flight. Short spells at Alloa Athletic and Airdrie have since followed, but by taking the reins at Broadwood it is the first time he has bossed in the lowest rung since leaving achieving promotion with Cowdenbeath back in 2009.
Lennon said: “Some people might question my ambition in coming to the bottom tier having previously spent time in the top flight, but the reality is that the competition is fierce.
“There are a lot of quality managers and coaches looking for jobs and I’m absolutely delighted to be given the opportunity at Clyde. I also think it speaks about the character I have that I’m not afraid to take a step back to come back up the way again.
“It’s the right fit for both of us. Clyde and myself are both hungry for success and both of us want to be higher up the leagues.
“To achieve that, we both need to put in a great deal of work. I accept that challenge and I’m going to put absolutely everything into it.”
