NEIL LENNON has called for the Celtic support to get behind the team in the coming weeks and months and help them get back to their best.
The Celtic manager believes the players can get back to their best if the support backs them all the way. Neil states it means everything for him personally to turn things around this season and get the team going.
Speaking at the AGM as cited by SunSport, the Celtic manager said.
“I’ve been a Celtic fan all my life, and I’ll be a Celtic fan for the rest of my life. This means more to me than anything in my life, apart from my family. I’ve got a great CEO in Peter Lawwell who has brought mega success to the club. We want more, we’re hungry. Fans will see that every now and again we’re going to have a struggle. We’ve no doubt that we’ll come out the other side stronger than ever.
“We need fans back, it affects players subconsciously. It means everything to me to turn things around and there are signs of things really improving. We’ve lost players to covid, there’s been some anxiety from the players, overthinking their play. We look at the physical data and it’s the same as last year. We’ve been antsy in the final third. I‘ve told players about turning seasons around. I believe I can do it, I’ve contributed five titles.”
Celtic have won their last two games after a dismal run of form. The two wins have come with the Celtic manager finally relenting and playing some of his younger stars. There was reluctance by Neil Lennon to field guys like Turnbull and Soro who have been a major part of the last two victories.
It blows my mind the manager didn’t do it sooner and waited for a dead rubber to give some their chance. While we’re not out of the woods yet, the signs of life are there and Celtic must capitalise on this going forward.
