Boss Bans Bobble Hats at Bottom Based Bolton

In his first decisive act as Bolton manager, Neil Lennon has shown that he's the boss

So, Bolton Wanderers have a new manager in Neil Lennon.

The Northern Irishman has only been in charge for two days and yet he's already proven more decisive than the hapless Dougie Freedman did in two years.

The 43-year-old has already moved to make his mark on the Bolton squad, however, by ordering his players to ditch their bobble hats during his first training session on Monday morning.

Lennon said:

"I don't want players training in hats because they don't play football in hats,"


He continued:

"But training was great and the response I got from the players was excellent.

"Walking out at the training ground was a great feeling and I am delighted to be back in football again."

Lennon, who resigned at Celtic at the end of the 2013/14 season after steering the club to three league titles and two Scottish Cups during his four-year reign as manager, and has signed a three-year contract with the club, and takes charge of his first game away at Birmingham City this weekend.
