BBC Radio pundit and ex-pro Tam McManus has mounted a defence of Neil Lennon after the senseless debate whether the way he celebrated a last gasp winner was appropriate.
Yes, you read it right.
There were a lot of people criticising Neil Lennon for running down the touchline and showing some passion as he celebrated with his own fans. Neil spoke after the game about the build-up and the euphoria as Edouard poked it home to send Celtic ten points clear but as usual, you have killjoys who have a problem with it.
Tam McManus simply asked what was wrong with what Neil did after the late goal. The pundit believes there are too many ‘robots’ in the game now and that sort of passion should not be criticised but encouraged.
What is wrong with this? It’s emotion and relief. There’s nothing better than scoring a last gasp winner. If I was a player or a fan I would LOVE to see my manager react like this. Too many robots in the game. Not offending anyone is he? Runs to own fans. Big deal. https://t.co/paJD7IVnLf

Neil now has two weeks to get match fit if he fancies running down the touchline at Celtic Park in two weeks against Steven Gerrard’s men.
