NEIL LENNON has tonight praised the protestors who stopped to cheer the team into Celtic Park on Sunday afternoon.
The protest against the board and Peter Lawwell took place on the Celtic Way before the game today but they got right behind the team when they got off the bus and walked into Celtic Park.
It must have been heartening for the players to hear the cheers and motivation before the game.
The team managed a 2-0 win against Kilmarnock in the end and put in a top second half performance to make sue of the three points.
After the game, Neil Lennon told The Scotsman, the praise from the protesters was wonder and appreciated.
“We just want unity,” he said, stating the support from protesters was “wonderful” and “appreciated”.
“We understand the fans’s frustrations. We’re out of the League Cup. And we’re out of Europe, so now we concentrate on the league. So it’s important that the fans get behind us, but we have to replicate that with performances and results. So it has been a good day but that’s all it has been so far. It won’t placate all of the fans, because of that position we are in, so we have to work at it and make it better.”
Celtic now have a week to prepare for the cup final where they will look to make it a quadtreble. History beckons for this side but it’s also worth mentioning, the league is the priority and we need to get a winning run going from here.
