Ok, a few weeks have passed and on a personal level all the emotion of Brendan Rodgers shock departure have simmered down a good bit. All my little brain cells are well and truly focused on Celtic and the last two remaining trophies of the season. Hopefully, that is the same for most Celtic fans.
Lennon’s latest comments are not doing my simmered down emotions much good. I fully understand the respect between the two and it must be weird for Lennon coming in and lifting trophies somebody else done the groundwork for. Maybe he should direct his praise onto the players instead though?
Lennon’s latest comments are badly timed. On winning the last two trophies of the season Lennon said:
“I want to do it for him as much as anybody else,” About Rodgers.“It would be a partial contribution from me, this eighth title. “For me, it’s down to Brendan and the work he implemented and the foundations in place. “This is still very much a Brendan team rather than mine.”
Like I said earlier, it’s admirable on some level but you will find very few Celtic fans looking to dedicate this season’s accomplishments to Rodgers.
