    Only played his mates?

    Look at his signings. The only decent players Ronny has had aren't any of his own signings, bar Denayer

    Players that carried Ronny last season and carried him just over the line this season have all been Lennon signings.

    Who were his mates? Vic, VVD, Lesley, Brown, Commons, Hooper and Forrester. These were his regular starters. Who would you have replaced them with?

    Good reply. Is this a spot the typo forum? Why not answer the question? A Celtic fan would know what I meant

    But like Ronny, how many were actually Lennon's signings? How much of a say did he have in it? Just because he was the manager at the time doesn't mean they were all his signings.

    There were times when Stokes, Commons, Samaras, Mulgrew etc would have a bad run of games, but time and time again they played even though we had players on the bench gagging and deserving of a game.

    No. I said a Celtic fan would know what I meant. So I am pointing out you are only trying to deflect as you knew who I meant

    There were times Stokes was playing well and getting dropped for all the big games. Samara's would be * and turn up for the big games when we needed him most. Commons scoring record from midfield in Lennys was phenomenal. Mulgrew had a player of the season under Lenny which wasn't bad for a reject.

    I would take him. At least we know that the players would play for him.

    Would appoint him as caretaker until the end of the season and see how we finish the season. Then look at appointing someone like Rodgers, Moyes or Alex Neil.

    Not for me. Lennon has had his time. He signed a lot of dross.

    Basically I don't think there's ever been a Celtic manager who got such value for money, and resale value, in the transfer market.

    a manager who has won league titles, graced the CL had many many high points in his managerial career. Consitently churned out 10m pound players...

    Where do you get that from?

    I would take him back in a heartbeat.
