St Mirren manager Jim Goodwin has hit out at Celtic boss Neil Lennon after he claimed that many clubs protocols weren’t up to scratch.

As reported by the Daily Record, Goodwin urged both Neil Lennon and Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes not to shoot themselves in the foot with their comments surrounding the protocols in which they slammed several clubs.

“I’ve got no issues with any of the other clubs out there, and I think we need to be careful within football.

“You listen to these managers out talking other clubs down in the media. I don’t think it’s healthy and I don’t think it’s positive.

“If they have concerns, go speak to people higher up in their own clubs and get them to pass on that message back to the clubs it involves and speak to the SFA.

“I don’t think we need to go publicly shaming anybody, I think every club in the league and the country for that matter are doing the best they can with the facilities we’ve got available to us.”

The outburst from Lennon came after the Hoops were criticised for their recent trip to Dubai which saw the club come back with two positive Covid-19 tests.

The protocols have been a crucial reason that football has been allowed to go ahead within Scotland and on a few occasions, they have been broken which have resulted in clubs being punished.

An investigation into these, began this week after Lennon’s comments. If it was revealed that these have been broken, it could result in extra punishments coming the way of Scottish Football.
