Steven Gerrard spoke about the pressure of being a manager in Glasgow and how things can change very quickly.
It was just over six months ago the Scouser was in the bad books with his supporters and fearing the chop. Right now, things are rosy but speaking about the flak surrounding the job, he mentions Neil Lennon’s current situation and how a few indifferent results is the catalyst for hysteria.
“I don’t think you have to be a rocket scientist to work it out that whoever is in the best form seems to get a bit more peace in terms of scrutiny in the media and the questions that are fired at you.” He told RangersTV.
“You get a couple of indifferent results and that certainly changes very quickly and the heat comes in a different direction. That’s the way it is.
“That’s what myself and Neil, or myself and Brendan (Rodgers) prior to Neil, have to live with. That’s the job we are in. That’s never going to change. I’m sure that it has been the same for many years and it will be in the future.”
Neil and Celtic would be just three points off the pace if they managed to win their game in hand but after a week of poor results, it’s been very tough on the manager and players.
Pundits and fans have been piling in on the Irishman and certain players in his side.
There’s so much at stake this season for Celtic the emotions can get the better of some people.
Celtic play a game away from the SPFL this evening which should allow them to hopefully find some sort of performance without the weight of ten in a row hanging over them.
