STEVEN GERRARD reckons Celtic have made the 'sensible appointment' by naming Neil Lennon as boss until the end of the season.

The Northern Irishman returned to Parkhead this week after Brendan Rodgers' shock decision to quit and join Leicester City.

And Rangers boss Gerrard isn't surprised to see Lennon back in the dugout so soon after his departure from Hibernian earlier in the campaign.

Gerrard said: "I think it is a sensible appointment in terms of where Celtic are at, if you want my opinion on it.

"He obviously knows the club very well, he has won there before.

"So I am sure they are pleased that he was available to walk straight in and I am sure they are hoping for a seamless transition.

"Whether that will be the case, we will have to wait and see. It is certainly a sensible decision."
