    Kennedy should have had the balls to walk with lennon ,they were a team so he should went as well.
    It shows he hadn't played a lot of senior games. His and lennons tactics were poor this season

    Good luck to him I hope he does well. I also hope he gets a decent job somewhere next season and starts building a positive reputation. Meanwhile we acquire a head coach who already has a good reputation that can come in and raise our levels again.

    All the best big JFK.

    He can talk a good game. I honestly think if the players start turning over teams with ease and beat Sevco in the derby game. Then they have most definitely downed tools under NL.

    I hope they do turn it around and win the remaining games as it will allow John Kennedy to leave Celtic and build his career in management and you never know maybe one day he'll manage us on a permanent basis.

    The problem for Kennedy is that's its a lose lose situation for him. Totally change the team, formation from Lennon & win games he will be called a sleekit *. lose games & he will be a * coach/manager.

    If he does well he may get the job.

    Sevco may lie down so that he does...

    If JK ends this season well and beats them twice...I'd bet he'd get the job.

    Knowing how sleeket the Huns are ,this is possible...and our Muppets fall for their slyness all the time.

    I dislike how Kennedy is treated like some sort of immovable fixture at Celtic now... he should be away as well and the fear now is that he somehow gets the job permanently - showers may or may not be involved...

    While he is interim manager he has just 2 tasks for me...

    Beat the Huns (once will do) to end their invincible hopes..

    and

    Assuming it goes ahead.... win the Scottish cup or at least make sure Sevco DONT win it.

    Then he can fckk off !

    That quote "The club has asked me to step in and take charge of the team which I’m more than happy to do. But ultimately it’s not about me, it’s about doing the right thing for both the team and the club." Sounds like a dig at Lennon. Won’t be. But it’s pretty relevant.

    the football was so bad under lennon any change is gonna seem positive,he hasnt got any wingers to change the formation to a 4231 as my guess hed change back to what brought us the most sucess so he stuck with the diamond midfield and if actually plays 2 strikers instead of christie or elyounoussi again is gonna seem positive .said many times a competent manager would of had us top of the league all jk needs to is cut out all the * up decisions lennon made in starting line ups and subs.he could do a brilliant job but i dont think it matters what he does now as nothing but a top manager with a fantastic reputation is gonna get fans onside,it may well had been different if he had got a shot at it in november

    There was a couple of things that could be interpreted as fly digs at Lennon in what he said imo but ultimately hes just tellling truth.

    He speaks well and doesnt pick his teeth during interviews so it’s a instant upgrade:giggle1:

    People seem to speak really highly of him! Still dread he will get it tho ! I do believe any input he had lennon would have ignored ! Maybe why he sat with his face tripping him ! Also he seemed to be quite vocal and sctive in training in the session yesterday unlike when you seen videos of lennon who just stood there! Is it that he actually is a good coach and has had his hands tied ? Or are celtic bein cute with what they show and trying to get us fans thinking he is the way forward ?

    No one actually knows how good Kennedy is or isn't so people saying he should of gone with Lennon are miles off it to be honest, as a coach you do what the manager tells you and if the manager is telling you he aint doing shape or any analysis then really a coach is restricted to 1v1 work or maybe even less, I imagine Kennedy will be quite a good coach considering most people only have good things to say about him.

    Absolutely do not want him to get the job even if he does well because we need to be aiming as high as possible and Kennedy for me at the moment doesn't have the reputation to pull the players we need, maybe best if he goes off and has a crack at managing another team once his interim period here is over, either way hopefully he cheers up on the touchline over the coming weeks and does well.
