Lennon is vying to become permanent Celtic boss for the second time in his career having taken over as interim head coach after Brendan Rodgers' sudden departure to take the Leicester City job in February.

While the Northern Irishman has since helped steer Celtic to their eighth straight Scottish Premiership title, as well as securing their spot in the Scottish Cup final against Hearts, Lennon has been criticised for an Old Firm loss to Rangers.

With doubt as to whether or not Lennon will be trusted with the Celtic reins for the long term, Rafa Benitez is among those to be linked with the Parkhead role.

Lennon has come out in fierce defence of his credentials as he looks to guide Celtic to a third successive treble, the previous two coming under Rodgers, by beating Hearts in the cup final a week on Saturday.

The 47-year-old insists Celtic fans need to come to terms with reality given the glory they have enjoyed in recent years and drew comparisons to the situation Ernesto Valverde finds himself in at Barcelona.

"Barcelona could win the double but a lot of their fans are calling for the head of Ernesto Valverde because they got knocked out of the semi-finals of the Champions League by Liverpool."

"It's not my world. I deal in the real world. Theirs is a knee-jerk world of unrealistic expectations."
