3-2 victory over Rangers in the first

#1
New Hibernian boss Neil Lennon says promotion to the top flight is his main priority for next season. The former Celtic manager signed a two-year contract at Easter Road on Wednesday as the Scottish Cup winners found a replacement for Alan Stubbs, who joined Rotherham on June 2.Stubbs departed Hibs having delivered the Scottish Cup to Leith for the first time in 114 years with a dramatic 3-2 victory over Rangers in the first final between two lower-league clubs. And now Lennon, who spent 18 months in charge of financially-troubled Bolton, is relishing the opportunity to continue Hibs revival, starting with the qualifying campaign for next seasons Europa League.Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, he said: Im very excited and I think its a fantastic club, one of the biggest in Scotland, and off the back of winning the Scottish Cup there is a real feel-good factor around the club.There is a good squad of players here and my challenge now is to get Hibs up into the Premiership. Its going to be difficult but not beyond us, Im very excited about it. Anthony Stokes runs to celebrate with Scottish Cup match-winner David Gray Ive always had admiration for the club, obviously from the affinity with my playing days and managing days with Celtic. I know the club very well. Ive had a look at the facilities, I know the stadium, and the training ground is as good as it gets, and its a club that Ive always had a soft spot for.But I know its a major job Ive got on my hands off the back of following what Alan Stubbs has done, and Id like to continue in that same vein.I think the potential here at the club is huge. Its a big-city club as well which is another attraction. Its got a big fan-base and we have to make them competitive and hard to beat. Lennon has set promotion to the Scottish Premiership as Hibs top target next season Lennon insists he has no problem with critics reviewing his time at Bolton, where he kept the club in the Championship against the odds in his first season.The Irishman believes the experience has been as beneficial as winning three successive Premiership titles with Celtic and guiding the Hoops to the last 16 of the Champions League.You are going to get judged anyway, but I think most people know the circumstances at Bolton were almost impossible to work in with the financial trouble that they found themselves in, he added. Alan Stubbs lifts the Scottish Cup at Hampden after Hibernian beat Rangers They did have relative success in the first season, the second season was difficult because we had virtually no money to spend, we had to cut the wage bill by 50 per cent, but we did have success in bringing through academy recruits who are assets to the club now that they never had before.It was a real experience. You learn from good experiences, you learn from bad experiences, and its certainly made me a better all-round manager now. Again, people can judge what they like on the Bolton scenario, the future now is with Hibs and I hope to prove a lot of people wrong.Lennon now has the task of building on the momentum at his new club after the historic Scottish Cup victory at Hampden Park on May 21. Lennon with the Scottish Premiership trophy he won three times at Celtic He insists that success played no part in his decision to replace Stubbs, but he is relishing the challenges ahead with Dundee United, Dunfermline and Falkirk all hoping to secure that automatic promotion spot next season.It had no real relevance on taking the job. For the supporters it was monumental, the first time in 114 years, and believe me theyve been taking a lot of stick for not winning the cup for a long, long time, he said.Great for the players, great for Alan, it was a great achievement, but the remit is to get promotion, to get out of the Championship, and back where we feel Hibs can thrive, and that is in the top division.

A prospective candidate could be identified by the end of the week. Four people familiar with discussions revealed that information to The Associated Press. They spoke on the condition of anonymity because the sale is being conducted privately. The other groups submitting bids were led by New York City real estate mogul Donald Trump, and a Toronto group led by rocker Jon Bon Jovi. The bids were submitted to Morgan Stanley, the banking firm overseeing the sale process on behalf of late owner Ralph Wilsons estate. Three of the people said the estate issued purchase agreements to at least four groups, and potentially five. The other groups identities are not known, and its unclear if they submitted bids. The purchase agreements are formal documents that are negotiated separately by each of the parties and Proskauer Rose, the legal firm representing the estate. The agreements are binding documents that outline the terms and conditions of the sale. Once those agreements were completed over the past week, the only outstanding question left was for each group to determine its bid price. The franchise was last valued by Forbes to be worth $935 million. But the sale price is expected to exceed $1 billion because NFL franchises rarely go on the block. The Bills are on the market after Wilson, the Hall of Fame inductee and franchise founder, died in March. The Cleveland Browns were sold for close to $1.05 billion two years ago. The Miami Dolphins sold for an NFL-record $1.1 billion in 2009, but their deal also included their stadium. The timing of thee sale process remains on track for the team to have a new owner before the end of the year -- and potentially by next month.dddddddddddd Once identified, the prospective owner would be presented to members of the NFL Finance Committee, which is scheduled to meet next week. The candidate must also go through an extensive background check conducted by an NFL-contracted security firm. The final step would be approval from three-quarters of the leagues 31 other owners, which could come at league meetings next month. After that, NFL owners are next scheduled to meet in December. The Pegulas remain the front runners. They have a net worth of more than $3.5 billion, and have the support of local business leaders and public officials because of their commitment to keep the Bills in western New York. U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer has stayed closely involved with the sale process to ensure the Bills stay in New York. Last week, Schumer expressed his support of Pegula in conversations with at least 10 NFL owners. During a stop in Buffalo on Monday, Schumer said he had conversations regarding the sale process with both Terry Pegula and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell earlier in the day. "We talked about the lay of the land. Im not going to get into details," Schumer said. "But I believe that (Pegula) is enthusiastic about owning and keeping the Bills in Buffalo for generations." Under the lease agreement reached in December 2012 with New York State and Erie County, the Bills are essentially locked in to playing at Ralph Wilson Stadium through the end of the 2019 season. There is a one-time out clause that would allow the team to break the agreement for just under $28.4 million in 2020.
