Lennon gets nod as new Bully Wee boss
Clyde FC have announced Danny Lennon as their new manager.
The former St Mirren boss proved to be the successful candidate after the Bully Wee board sifted through over 30 applications last week.
Clyde chairman Norrie Innes said: “This exciting appointment comes on the back of an intensive fortnight for the club.
“Tony McNally and Ian have done a great job in stepping up and galvanising the whole squad and it is only right that we firstly acknowledge their commitment in supporting the club through this disruptive period of transition.
“I personally thank them and I know they will have enjoyed and gained from the experience.
“To progress for the remainder of the season and beyond we wanted to appoint a manager who has the requisite knowledge, experience and ability to develop each player further and strengthen the talents and capabilities of the team and staff.
“Danny, in preparation for his interview, attended the game against Stirling Albion and demonstrated his strong desire for the job by presenting his own detailed match analysis.
“He has a very impressive record and a substantial skill set, which is what we need to develop a stronger footballing structure and positive culture within the club.
“This will be founded on the hard work we have carried out in our commercial and operational areas.
“Danny spoke with passion and intelligence and he very much welcomes the challenges ahead.
“We are committed to assisting and supporting the manager, staff and players in delivering better performances and results.”
Lennon, 48, takes over the club who held league leaders Stirling Albion to a 1-1 draw but remain in eighth place in League Two.
Interim boss Tony McNally guided Clyde to their second successive draw since the departure of Jim Chapman last month.
The Binos took the lead with 10 minutes to go thanks to Darren Smith but a soft penalty decision saw the table-toppers drop points as David Goodwillie netted from the spot at the death.
