Big round of applause for illdecide and the Armagh lads on here who dug in and defended Lennon when the dogs on the street knows he couldn't manage a pub team.

Well done lads, you destroyed history for Celtic to keep your unqualified, arrogant Lurgan man in a job.

Clap, clap, clap.

I wasnít aware that opinions on the Gaaboard held so much sway in the Celtic boardroom 😂

Shambles of a season i dont think Calum Mc Gregor is captain or leader material,the midfield today soro,turnbull,mc gregor,johnston,frimpong,should have had enough about them to trouble livingston they were dominated physically all day,rogic is  finished but isnt a striker,i think change is the only way forward.

Change is needed with Lennon for sure but goes deeper than that - a lot deeper.

Board needs cleaned out - not fit for purpose.

This years, or all years, has been a total disgrace.  The club has been run dow this past 4 or 5 years.

Now in a way, I understand why Brendan Rogers left.  He understood what was going on behind the seems with the board.

If Lennon had walked in October, Celtic fans would have held him high esteem.  Now they despise him.

Rodgers was absolutely justified to leave the job. I don't blame him one iota for it but the way he left, mid season with a treble treble to wrap up will always leave a sour taste in the mouth. He should have bit his tongue, finished out the season and walked with his head held high. Had that happened he would have had a large swell of goodwill in what he achieved and understanding that Lawwell was the barrier to Celtic looking to kick on another level. Instead he left with in a cloud, with fans upset and angry at the way he left and took the heat off Lawwell.

Lennon has dined out on the Celtic man thing for far too long. He was blessed to play for a Celtic, an ordinary enough player, we never had to fight off interest from bigger teams for him, he played well past his sell by date for him. I can remember the embarrassing images of him being destroyed by Kaka in the CL. He'd never have done anything in management only for the Celtic job, he's a yes man, happy to do whatever the boss tells him to as he knows there's never going to be another job of this magnitude for him. Overall he's not a Celtic fan, he's a mercenary - if he was good enough he would have walked out on Celtic but he was blessed to play for and manage the club.

3 goals in 214 games for Celtic. A poor man's Peter Grant.

Anyway you are 100% on the situation not improving until Lawwell is rooted out of the job. Lennon didn't appoint himself afterall. It's an old boys club, when we need to go for a coach we get a guy in from f**king Peterborough because he's Gordon Strachan's son. John Kennedy is clearly a lifer there who is Lawwell's snitch. The whole management and coaching team have to go and then the board have to follow.

It's important all the fans follow in line with The Celtic Trust and do not renew their season ticket until Lawwell goes.

Agree with your first and last paragraph. Iíve recently signed up to the trust. Hopefully they can get stronger and stronger

In fairness, I would agree with this bit also...

He'd never have done anything in management only for the Celtic job

He got a lucky break at the time when Mowbray was sacked.  His record as Celtic boss is fairly underwhelming - he couldn't not pick up a couple of league titles with them.  I'd be surprised if any future managerial position was beyond League two or the scottish championship

Excellent point today for Celtic against a Livingston team who had won eight matches in a row

Things are suddenly looking up

Clan na Gael in Lurgan are looking at Lennon for their U17 job thatís coming up this year. Free food from Paulís chippy is in the deal as well.

To be honest I donít read much of what Angelo says about Lennon. As an example look at the sentence above the one you pointed out.

Desmond is part of the problem too.

What has he ever invested in Celtic? Possibly contributed to the wages of Rodgers and O'Neill at the time but there has been no investment in Celtic from the shareholders in recent years. It's been money generated from the club, that the board then syphon into their own pockets - it should be the other way around.

The club is a shambles but Lawwell is the single biggest issue, he's from the same school of thought as the bankers that got very rich off the back of collapsing the economy. He is a heinous corporate pig.

This is just wrong, and contradictory.
How can you be a mercenary if you gave most of your playing and managerial career to a club, the one he supports. Contradictory statement, and shows he is anything but a mercenary.
Saying he would have walked out if he was good enough (for what), as well is also nonsense. You don't know that. You're actually knocking him because he didn't go to a bigger club. Not sure what your point is there as you have been looking him out.

The big one doing the rounds has strachan taking the U23 team to the end of the season. Kennedy in a football operations role. Ross Desmond being appointed to the board of directors immediately and Lawell stepping down at end of the season. Howe to be unveiled on Thursday morning. As I sad we donít have an U23 team so this is nonsense

No contradictions there at all. Lennon didn't give his whole career to Celtic. Nobody ever came in for him when he was a Celtic player or manager, when he left Celtic his next port of call were Nottingham Forest and Wycombe and then Bolton/Hibs.

He is and was a mercenary, if he was any good he'd have been off at the first chance for more money but the bottom line was he was a very average player and an absolutely clueless manager.

What bigger clubs came in for him. I'm speaking about reality here. Celtic was the absolute peak of Lennon's career, for player of his ability he was absolutely blessed to play so many games for Celtic.

A poor man's Peter Grant.

Lennon is a Celtic man but he isnít going to give up his payout. He wants sacked and I donít blame him. Itís probably going to be his last big money earner so heís just right. And Iím sure every one of us would be the same if we were in his position.  Itís the board need to take the blame for keeping him.
