Neil Lennon could be entering his final days as Celtic manager, pundit Michael Stewart has told BBC Sportsound this evening.
Celtic have suffered another horror 4-1 defeat at the hands of Sparta Prague and this time it could be the final hammer blow for the manager’s second spell at the club.
Speaking on BBC Radio Scotland (19:50), Stewart said: “It feels as if that could be the endgame for Neil Lennon at Celtic. I don’t see how it turns around from here.
“For there to be two successive 4-1 defeats in Europe, and to have flitted between a back three and a back four and personnel, but nothing’s really changing. It’s like the messenger isn’t being listened to now.
“Something’s not right, something’s not working and there have been so many different alternatives tried, it just feels to me that could be the end.”
Meanwhile, Chris Sutton has finally come down off the fence too, suggesting it’ll be hard for his old teammate and pal to come back from that.
He posted on Twitter:
Hard for Neil Lennon to see this out after that.

It’s obvious something has to change at Celtic, whether that be the manager, a new coaching team brought in or new personnel added to the hierarchy of the club.
The likelihood is that all three of those things have to happen.
Nobody is enjoying this.
Nobody is happy.
We all love Lennon and the success he has brought to the club over the years. However, it now seems some of his closest media allies are now struggling to see a way forward for him at Celtic Park.
A mammoth few days lie ahead and the outpouring of anger, confusion and grief amongst Celtic supporters is likely only going to grow.
