NEIL LENNON gave a prickly response when asked about his rival’s form this season. BBC Sportsound asked the Celtic boss to comment on the juggernaut season they are having but the Hoops boss was none to happy.
“Rob, you can’t ask me that, I’m the Celtic manager. You need to ask other people that question. But they’ve been very consistent.” The Irishman told BBC Sportsound.
Neil Lennon laments that their form might not have been so good if his team had exerted any type of pressure on them throughout the season. Instead, the bhoys have never really been in a title race or pushed them to see if they would crack under pressure.
Lennon continues: “It might have been different if we had been more consistent ourselves. We can only look at what we’re doing in the dressing room, on the training ground, in the way we’ve played this season. It’s been too inconsistent for the standards we’ve set over the last few years.”
Celtic lost on Sunday night to bottom side Ross County in what was their second win over the outgoing champions this season. Neil Lennon should have been relieved of his duties after the first County defeat but the board allowed this circus to continue.
We have been given so man excused by Neil Lennon who believes the adverse nature of this season has been the real culprit in us losing the league title.
Neil Lennon should be nowhere near the Celtic job this morning, but sadly, our board don;t see it that way. There’s surely no way the Hoops gaffer stays beyond the summer.
