Some Celtic fans have been left annoyed and irritated at the treatment of Timo Weah after the American revealed Neil Lennon sent him packing earlier than expected.
Timo had been training with the team all week in the lead up to the Glasgow Derby but when news dropped he would be heading to the Under-20 World Cup with the USA, Neil Lennon told the player to ‘collect his things and go now’.
This has sparked an angry reaction from some Celtic fans who believed the attacking midfielder deserved better than that on his way out the door.
The Irishman could have let the player stay until the weekend was over, even if he wasn’t going to be in the matchday squad. However, it sounds like Lennon was happy to cut ties unceremoniously with the PSG player. Surely there’s more to it than what Timo wrote.
Weah sent a heartfelt thanks and praise to the Celtic support as he exited Lennoxtown for the final time. It looks like the weeman will play his football elsewhere next season.
Was Neil Lennon right to send Timo away early?
If Weah’s statement is accurate it’s precisely the type of situation which proves Lennon should be nowhere near the Celtic job for next season. His man management of players is proven to be awful

I really doubt Neil Lennon said that to Timo Weah in quite so harsh terms, people are hysterical these days

Unless there is something a lot more to the story behind the scenes, it makes no sense to send Weah home.

Fuck me the Weah message to the fans doesn't look great on Lennon very strange, he should've been allowed to finish off the season an be part of the treble if we do it, hink our relationship with PSG will be done aswell boys been treated poor tbh.
