    Would you really expect them to announce anything past 9 O’Clock on a Saturday night?

    If you went into work every day hating your boss, listen to him berate you in public, watch his amateurish training techniques, drag you and your colleagues down from the high standards you set, would you want to work for him? I certainly wouldnt. Im not saying all the players are angels but going into that dressing room, going into training at Lennoxtown must be difficult for some of our players especially the younger ones. It must be quite a toxic atmosphere

    Shameful the way him and the club have handled this whole situation. In a time where fans should be lauded for backing the club to the hilt with so much uncertainty surrounding jobs, businesses, mental health etc. They treat each and every one of us with utter contempt and even have the audacity to insult us with cheap shots about being entitled while we trail a 8 year old team by 20+ points in the league, crash out in the CL qualifiers, finish bottom of our Europa League group, crash out of the League Cup to Ross County, almost lose the Scottish Cup final to a Hearts team in the division below us. Now blaming pressure. The same guys that have just won the last 12 domestic trophies, including a full undefeated domestic season.

    Couldn't mark the * neck with a blowtorch.

    Alex Dyer sacked almost immediately after the Killie game today.

    It’s criminal that we haven’t done the same. It’s not like this hasn’t been coming for a long time.

    With all due respect to clubs like Killie and Motherwell, the fact our board are more inept than theirs is frankly an embarrassment.

    Genuine question? When was the last Celtic manager who’s record/form was as bad as this absolute wasters?

    Why the * would anyone believe Paul the Tim ?

    He's a roaster.

    Lennon will slither on until the end of the season.

    I don't think the board's refusal to sack him is money orientated. I think Lennon remains in place because he's acting as a mud guard and because they have no-one available to replace him. Kennedy and Strachan as inteirm managers won't do.

    I’m hoping that the inaction is because there are no plans for either Kennedy or Strachan or the laptop to feature any further.. not even in a caretaker role. If there’s nobody lined up as yet then getting shot of all 4 of them would leave Broony as player-coach. Or a youth coach or Hoopy or ...?!?

    Ideally I’d like to hear ASAP that a new decent name manager was starting in May and keep them all on in time to get fans back in to some degree and watch them all squirm as they have to take the ‘credit’ for such a catastrophic collapse in the most important season since 98...

    I’d put money on it that NL would walk if there was the prospect of even a 20% crowd allowed in to vent the feelings of themselves and the other 80%. He’s only there because covid has made it an easy ride as far as supporters go.

    Any press conferences of the fraud posted in here yet? I haven’t seen it yet. Is he still saying he’s the man to turn it around and talking about what he won 9 years ago? Is he still saying fans are spoiled and players are great while throwing half of them under the bus?

    From BBC

    Celtic manager Neil Lennon: "It was a poor performance, a poor result. We expect to build a crescendo of pressure and break teams down but that's been missing this season.

    "The lack of belief and lack of quality - it's not just individuals, it's a collective, and it's symptomatic of the season.

    "It's a low point in terms of the performance and the result - but I'll keep working away trying my best."

    The Lawwell situation makes it all a bit more complicated. Do we let Kennedy take it until.the end of the season or does Lawwell let the new guy pick a new boss?

    I think we'll have Lennon until May

    Read somewhere today that the new guy will be working with Lawwell behind the scenes until he takes over.

    Give it to Gordon Strachan to the end of the season. He knows the team from Celtic TV. We've still got 2 old firm games to win. Lennon doesn't deserve to remain. He has to go.

    Would be interested to know this as well.

    Can’t be anyone worse surely? Anyone else on a bad run would have been dealt with way before this clown we have just now.

    We haven’t had an "Old F**m" to win since 2012.
