Interim Celtic boss Neil Lennon feels that too much has been made of some recent results. The Hoops have drawn 0-0 with both Aberdeen and Livingston over the past month.

Despite dropping points, the Hoops are still well placed to win the league title. Ahead of the Scottish Cup semi-final against Aberdeen, Lennon has explained that he feels that the Hoops get too much criticism.

“We get overanalysed”

“I think sometimes we get overanalysed and criticised” he told the Daily Record.

“We are unbeaten since we have come in and have extended our lead at the top of the table. A 0-0 draw at home and all of a sudden it is a Doomsday scenario.”

Easy to see Lennon’s view

It is easy to see where Lennon is coming from. The two draws have not mattered in the long run. Celtic are still going to win the league.

However, Lennon will also know that every Celtic performance being over-analysed is just what happens with the job.


If a performance isn’t up to what the fans expect of the club, questions are inevitably asked.

No doubt the upcoming Scottish Cup tie against Aberdeen will be the same. Indeed, the game will analysed even more than most, as it is probably the most important of Celtic’s season.

There is nothing Lennon can do about that though. All he can do is keep winning games. So far, he has done a good job with that.
