MOI ELYOUNOUSSI has revealed he feels bad for his gaffer Neil Lennon who is taking the brunt of the heat for the players not performing on the park.

Celtic have gone through a dismal run which would have seen many managers in the past be sacked. However, Neil Lennon has been given not one but two votes of confidence in the last two weeks but the players are still not performing at their best.

The fear is Celtic could be out of the title race altogether by January, but even now it seems a struggle or a pipe dream we could win this league playing the way we are right now.

Speaking about the manager and performances, Moi believes the whole team should take their share of the blame and everyone is behind the manager.

“I feel bad for the gaffer, on a personal level, as he is Mr Celtic.” Moi told CelticTV.

“He’s been here for a long time as a player and now as a manager.

“He’s won a lot of things and is a legend here. So I really feel for him as it must be hard for him when people are saying things.

“But he’s a tough guy and he can handle it. I think he’s handling things really well and we, as players, are 100 per cent behind him as well.

“Of course, everyone is looking at him for everything but it’s a team sport.

“We as players can improve and we know we should have done better.“We are all in this together. We win as a team and we lose as a team.”

Celtic have a dead rubber against Lille this evening at Celtic Park before they’re in league action against Kilmarnock on Sunday where any more dropped points would constitute another crisis.

A win would do wonders for the fans and club at this point, we just want the team to look like they can win and win comfortably.
