Lennon is looking to bring another coach to Parkhead, but it won't be his long-time friend.

Parker was the No.2 to Lennon during their time at Hibs and had previously been on his coaching staff during the Northern Irishman's first spell in charge of Celtic.

John Kennedy is expected to continue in his role as Celtic assistant when Lennon's return as permanent manager is confirmed.

The club are working towards announcing Lennon's hiring by the end of Friday.
