“Who are we going to watch?”

“Everything is up in the air at the moment, recruitment, the lot. I mean, who are we going to watch? All of the games are off” Lennon said, as quoted by the Daily Record.

“We are going to end up watching the old black and white reels of Stanley Matthews.”

The situation is certainly unprecedented in the game, and it will be difficult for Lennon and his players to find stuff to do in the meantime.

Good to see Hoops boss being so honest

Still, it is good to see the Hoops boss being brutally honest about what is going to happen in the future, it is better to do that with fans than pretend that he knows what is going to happen.

Hopefully football resumes one way or another this season, but at the moment that could be a long way-off from happening.

No doubt Celtic will keep the fans updated about the situation which could change rapidly. However, for the moment, all of Celtic’s plans for the weeks and months ahead will have to be cancelled, as the shutdown begins.

Just when will football return? Will Celtic get the chance to make it nine in a row? Share your thoughts with a comment in our new discussion forum…
