Celtic manager Neil Lennon still has the full confidence of club Chief Executive Peter Lawwell and shareholder Dermot Desmond.
It was business as usual for the Bhoys boss today despite last night’s horror defeat to Sparta Prague.
He gave his usual press conference to reporters and updated them on his status as club manager.
As quoted by Clyde 1 Superscoreboard, Lennon said: “I’ve spoken to the two of them today, on a Zoom call this morning, and we’re trying to find solutions to what we can do better, not just with the first-team but all around the club.
“It was a very productive conversation. I have their full support.
“We’re not happy with the way things have gone over recent weeks. They’ve been with me since day one, through the good times, when we go through what would be perceived as a bad time at the minute. They feel the need to offer up suggestions, ideas and vice versa from me.
“It’s not surprising because of the relationship I’ve had with them.”

What is going on at Celtic?
They really are something to behold.
Exactly what kind of footballing advice could Lawwell and Desmond be giving our manager that will help the ongoing situation?
What would be perceived as a bad time? There’s no perception required. It’s clear as day what is happening. It is a bad time.
Neil Lennon is a Celtic icon and a legend of the club. However, he could start damaging his reputation with supporters if he continues to deny reality here.
I wasn’t expecting the manager to leave the club today, as I wrote this morning. That’s not really how Celtic do business.
However, I was hoping for a more humble and responsive Lennon during his Ross County press conference.
It seems like the same old walls are up, to the frustration of many supporters.
As for Lawwell and Desmond. Well, they can’t keep hiding on Zoom calls and behind press briefings with zero quotes.
Sooner or later, communication with fans is vital.
