'Beyond embarrassing'; Celtic fans furious as club pretend it's business as usual with Neil Lennon

There’s been a furious reaction from online Celtic fans to the business as usual stance of the club and Neil Lennon today.

Neil Lennon and Scott Bain faced the media in press conferences, remotely, with the club later posting the clips to YouTube for fans to view.

There is no word on the status of the ‘new year review’.

There is no acknowledgement that change is needed at the club or any sort of communication on plans for the future.

There is no sign of a management change, caretaker or otherwise.

As it stands, Neil Lennon will very much be in the dugout at Rugby Park tomorrow as Celtic take on Kilmarnock.

That’s despite one win in six and performances since the turn of the year barely getting better.

Celtic, as a club, are in a complete rut and the manager stands as a barrier to progress.

Neil Lennon has lost the Celtic fans

That’s why supporters are annoyed tonight. The official Twitter account is taking a pounding, even beyond the rancour that it has experienced in recent weeks.

Thousands of replies are being left on the press conference post, with very few retweets and likes in comparison. That ratio is a sign of the feeling out there.

Lennon, going by his comments on Saturday, has lost the dressing room. He’s lost the fans. The only people still backing him are those who have the power to make the correct decision.

These supporters have taken to social media in an attempt to let the club know how they feel about the situation…

In other news, a talented youngster has left Celtic today.
