Enough is enough. Surely today’s League Cup defeat to Ross County is the final straw?
Celtic have hit a brick wall and it’s time to make a change.
I don’t know a Celtic supporter who doesn’t appreciate what Neil Lennon has done for the club over the last 20 years.
The way he returned to the club after the departure of Brendan Rodgers will always be legendary. The way he captained the club and became an icon will always be legendary. All of his trophy wins are enshrined in history.
But the time is up and this Celtic team are clearly going nowhere fast under his management.
However, much like the selection of Scott Brown isn’t the player’s fault, Lennon’s continued employment is no longer on the Bhoys boss.
This is now about the men above him who refuse to take action and are happy to see this shambles continue.
I feel sorry for the manager today. He shouldn’t be in this situation.
Chief Executive Peter Lawwell and largest shareholder Dermot Desmond should have already stepped in.
However, all we’ve heard this week is how much backing they have given to the man in the dugout after hurried Zoom calls and long chats.
No surprise then that the tide of fan opinion is now escalating to turn against them, rather than Lennon himself.
Don’t get me wrong, the players who were dreadful against Ross County are also culpable for this mess. Lennon has to take his share of responsibility.
But only two men can now bring change to Celtic Park.
Thes fans have taken to Twitter this afternoon to share their thoughts on it all…
What is hard to take is that Lawwell is sitting there thinking Neil Lennon is the right choice as manager.

Neil Lennon should have been removed weeks ago. Negligent .

Should never have got the job in the first place
Should never have survived Cluj
Should never have survived plenty of other disasters
Negligence by Lawwell and Desmond

This is brutal. Lack confidence, no ideas. Players are bang average. No leadership. Lawwell & Desmond still back their man. Shambolic situation we find ourselves in.

If Lennon survives this then it’s fairly clear Lawwell/Desmond/the board prioritise the survival of a club at Ibrox over success at Celtic Park this season. Absolutely shameful by everyone at the club.

Every result from now, every performance, is on Lawwell and Desmond

Correct. It is no longer Lennon’s fault. He should not be in a position to do a single thing with regards to Celtic- let alone the most important one at the club.

This Celtic team defend like a bad pub team. We are now a laughing stock but DD & Lawwell think Lennon is the man. The thing Is I don’t get that upset now, or surprised now.
