It's quite sickening listening to some of the pro-Lennon rubbish here.

They are more worried about Neil Lennon's feelings than the fate of the club. It's like a mothers whatsapp chat group this, ffs!

If this was Tony Mowbray, would the likes of illdecide and co be clamouring for sympathy for the manager? They would in their f**k, they'd be wanting him chased ASAP.

The pressure is really coming on now because Lennon should have been ran long, long ago. The only reason he is in the job is sentimentality and sympathy. This is as big as it gets for him in management, he doesn't have the CV to get another job like this ever again.

Some of you would want to cop yourself on.

Totally classless act. Lennon has given a lot to Celtic. By all means call from him to resign, but he does not deserve this.

This kind of hypocrisy is embarrassing.

I agree.But will Moyes take the job? I doubt it.There are no easy fixes or solutions.Deila did ok in his first year with the likes of Guidetti,Denayer etc but that quality has not been replaced.
No passion, no tactics, no balls and as for the Ronnie Roar my christ I'm embarrassed for him. He has failed with flying colours.

Would you describe the above post as classless or is only lads for Lurgan you get sensitive about?

How can any of those players have respect for that Celtic management team? John Collins was a so so player and a worse manager, Delilah came from a second class league. There has been absolutely no heart or passion in that Celtic team since they took over. A poor rangers team made them look like they were the championship side. Scott Brown is a shadow of the player he used to be and as for Bitton....

Embarrassing double standards here.

I have stated before that Bitton is a joke of a player, Scott Brown is a player usually associated with the hustle and bustle and to snuff out the danger man on the other team but not sure if he'd have the  legs for that any more but no skill there whatsoever. Johansen has been really poor this year and Gary Mackay-Steven is a mid table Scottish Premier League player and nothing else who can perform a good game in 10, Roberts done okay but missed a chance that will embarrass him until the day he dies...Ohh hold on a minute i've just named the midfield, now let me think we have K Commons and T Rogic on the bench who are probably the most talented players available and he uses one of them for about 20 mins...WTF. That's terrible bad management...Sorry young Ronnie but you had your shot and failed miserably, it's time to part ways and good luck to you in the future.

The Board now need to man up and get a man in with experience and a proven track record (not a yes man), unfortunately this man will be looking assurances on money to buy players etc and I don't believe he'll get it so another "Yes" man will more than likely be appointed in the Summer.

No to yes men.

Yes to yes men from Armagh.

Classless and entitled this crowd. One minute hes the best thing since sliced bread and the next people want him chased after a few dodgy results, in November ;D Celtic fans are as fickle as there are around. No faith in the team, who have shown themselves to be spineless, but it's Lennon who has been made to be the scapegoat. Embarrassing behaviour. Celtic will still win the league, and comfortably, only if Lennon stays.

Angelo, he needs to go no doubt but youíre way over the top. People have a natural affinity towards Lennon due to his background. Itís only natural that they feel more defensive over Lennon. The same way youíre being a Mickey Harte cheerleader in the Tyrone thread. Do you dislike Lennon? Do you not feel any sympathy to him at all?

Disagree with this. Celtic arenít going to win the league this year with Lennon. And to be honest, they maybe only won it last year because rangers hit the self destruct button. Rangers have only conceded a handful of goals this year. To win the league, Celtic are going to have to go win the majority of Old Firm games and go on a consistent run. That doesnít seem possible with Lennon. Stevie G had his number tactically. The players need to stand up as well and they all need to take a look at themselves but the manager is the one who ultimately it falls back on.

As someone with a somewhat more balanced view on the current happenings, I think the reaction to Neil Lennon and Celticís current form has been somewhat OTT.  Obviously the focus on the 10 in a Row has played a part in this.  However, you just donít get the impression that Lennon can actually turn it around, nor is he as tactically astute as other managers out there.  It got him so far with Celtic as they had no viable opponents in the time Rangers were getting their act together.  Amuses me when Celtic fans harp on about Rangers being crap etc, they arenít.  They have a good team (and squad) this season where players know their role and they play to a system.  They may drop the odd point between now and the next old firm, but I donít expect a monumental collapse that some are expecting.

Gutted for Neil Lennon. Really wished he was going to do the 10 in a row. Heís gone now by the looks of it. Just not good enough for the job.

Really Jim?

I don't dislike Lennon in any way but he is a yes man who did not get the job on merit. He is tactically clueless, his coaching ability and preparation has been questioned by former players, he rarely if ever takes repsonsibility - it has been a constant theme of him throwing his players under the bus after every bad performance. The bottom line is he is just a poor manager, he had jobs with Bolton and Hibs in between his two Celtic stints. His managerial CV will never ever get him a job like Celtic again because as a football manger, he's just a below par football manager.

It's quite sickening listening to the hypocrites who will not allow any valid criticism of Lennon but will be jumping down the throat of the next non-Armagh man to manage Celtic after a few bad results.

Look at the abuse some of those who are here defending Lennon gave Ronny Deila, they can't have it both ways. I'm sure Tony Mowbray also got similar abuse.

Lennon has to go as he's out of his depth, he only got the job because of his status among the support and his personal relationship with Lawwell and willingness to be a yes man. It's Lawwell I really blame as he is a cancer on the club. The highest paid executive in European football who shortchanges us with chump managers.

We have much better players currently than what we had when things went sour with Deila but we are probably every bit as bad now or worse.

But of course the same lads who savaged Deila won't allow any sort of criticism of their county man.

If you actually want to compare and contrast Lennon and Deila's last season so far at this stage:

League

Lennon P13 W9 D3 L1
Deila P13 W10 D2 L1

Deila 3 points better off

CL
Lennon 2nd round qualification exit
Deila play off round qualification exit

Deila 2 rounds further

EL
Lennon P3 W0 D1 L2
Deila P3 W0 D2 L1

Deila 1 point better off

Some of you lads need a little dose of objectivity here.

Yeah. I have said many times before, that it there was a man whoíd Iíd like to see win the 10 in a row it would be Neil Lennon. Heís just not a good enough manager to do that. Iím gutted to see that it has resulted in the GB displaying banners about him. Heís a local man and a genuine Celtic man so itís not nice to see him go out like this and will he then forever be known as the man who fucked up the 10 in a row?

He has to go, even his last press conference massively missed the point, he rambled on about if draws were wins etc, league start is similar to 3 years ago when we won a treble. the difference obvs being the huns are flying this season so no breathing space, and also the rest of the SPFL have dramatically declined in quality, this current Aberdeen, Killie team etc are nowhere near as much of a threat as they have been and also Hearts out of the league who were always good for taking points off rangers. Also, he conveniently brushed over our disgraceful performances in Europe, getting horsed out if CL and being pummelled by a Prague team which hadn't played a league game in months and was missing 8 first team players.

I actually think the banner was pretty respectful, much more respectful than the reaction at the rangers or Prague games had fans been in the stadium, Covid is keeping him in a job at the min.
