The infuriating Neil Lennon response to BBC man's question on his Celtic future

Neil Lennon has no intention of leaving Celtic, even at the end of the season.

BBC Scotland reporter Kheredine Idessane was present at today’s Zoom call press conference with the Celtic manager.

After defeat to St Mirren at the weekend, there are again serious question marks about Lennon’s future.

It seems that the idea of leaving this summer was put to the Bhoys boss today, but his response was defiant.

Lennon is quoted as saying, by Idessane: “Why would it be my intention to go? Peter’s decision has nothing to do with my position at all, or my coaches or any of the players. So I don’t understand the context of the question at all.”

Neil Lennon needs to leave Celtic

The time for sentiment towards Neil Lennon has long gone. He needs to be removed from his position as soon as possible.

Celtic have been routed out of two European competitions this term.

Lennon’s team haven’t even put up a fight in the Scottish Premiership.

We’re out of the League Cup.

Celtic have only one win in the last six and performances are not getting better.

How long must we endure this arrogance and nonsense from the Celtic manager?

Lennon can be as defiant and belligerent as he wants with the media on his own time. Celtic fans deserve better than this.

We deserve proper communication on the future of the club. We need to know what the club are planning to do to fix the malaise that has crept in.

I used to hold the utmost respect for Neil Lennon. It’s reaching the point I no longer have any.

He is treating supporters with disdain and Celtic must take action.

In other news, Jonjoe Kenny could make his Celtic debut tomorrow night.
