Former Celtic striker Frank McAvennie feels comfortable telling his pals at Open Goal Sport about what’s going on in the Celtic dressing room apparently.
Speaking on the Open Goal Coupon show alongside Simon Ferry and Derek Ferguson the football dinosaur shared a story from Neil Lennon’s time at the club since returning in February.
McAvennie didn’t name the player but told the story below.
“There’s a lot happening that I’m hearing.
“I’m going to tell you something that will shock you.
“I got told that Lenny was shouting at one of them and the player said, ‘Brendan never shouted at us’.
“If that’s the case, football’s gone.”
The need or compulsion to tell this story is pretty poor. What does it do for anybody other than make Frank look like the big man for having some inside information?
The running theme if you listen to this particular trio is ‘the game’s gone’ and it’s not like it was back in their day.
This story reflects badly on Neil Lennon as much as it does Frank. An insight into what some of the Celtic players are experiencing for the first time since Rodgers left. A silly thing for any player to say after a rollicking but the fact that it’s got outside the changing room and Frank’s eagerness to ‘shock’ Derek Ferguson and Simon Ferry smacks of attention seeking.
