    He was not sacked but I don’t believe for a second he resigned on his own accord. Most likely he was told by the board to resign or be fired. The stubborn git said a few days ago he planned to be here next season and even blew his top again after being asked about it.

    I never wanted him back but gave him the benefit of the doubt. Really proved to be an incompetent manager and probably the worse we’ve had since Barnes. Wish him all the best though but no longer a legend in my eyes. His treatment and attitude of the club, players and especially the fans has been so horrendous and unforgivable.

    I will remember him for his words towards us fans. Repeatingly insulting us this season when we were right to question him and the team. Calling us who saw this 20 points fall behind coming in autumn hysterical. Playing the same * 11 again at the game after the Ferencvaros debacle, literally showing us the finger. He has disrespected us supporters in an amount and way I've never witnessed before. Not even now he was a man and stood to his mistakes. It's still the circumstances that failed him, not his poor coaching (nearly every player has regressed since he took over) or lack of game plan or tactics. This man has no respect for us fans and therefore I have none for him. He was lucky to take over a very good team from Rodgers which won trophies for him. If he had taken over from Deila he wouldn't have won much more than Ronny and probably returned to his famous chips and soda diet.

    Finally ffs. As a previous poster said I believe he was told to resign or be sacked and resigned to try and "save face". Good news he's finally away. Now the board need to get their * in gear and sign a decent replacement.

    What a difference a couple of years can make to ones reputation.

    When he left first time it was with best wishes, when he got abused elsewhere we supported him fully.

    Now he leaves with derision and a tarnished legacy.......I'm actually really sad for what he has done to himself.

    21 major honours as a player and a manager, so gutted to see how it's gone this season but he's still been a huge part of many of our best memories and people should keep this in mind once the dust settles, anyway onwards and upwards

    They're hardly going to come out and slate him in the press briefing. Particularly when that would be by extension slating themselves for hiring the guy in the first place and taking no action in the last 4 months when it was apparent to all that the season was going up in flames.

    They can try to dress it up how they like but no-one is fooled. The legacy of all parties associated with this is now decided among supporters.

    An unmitigated disaster of a season but one that has shown up the incompetence of several individuals at the club and for that reason it could be a good thing in the long-term.

    I'm guessing he lost it after the Ross County game, but he lost the support back in November.
    Now we'll have to endure some banter, but the main thing now is to get recruitment right.
    In order for Sevco to win their first title it's cost them rather a lot of money. Over a daft song,
    they've spent upwards of £90million.
    Now with Lenny gone they're unleashing a little wave of factually incorrect information.
    What is true is Lenny will get a gig in Scotland and that then becomes a problem for
    Stevie G next season.
    Think you'll see Lenny as the next manager of Aberdeen.

    Cowardly the way he's resigning now due to the prospect of the huns winning the league at parkhead.

    Even worse from the board, verging on gross negligence allowing this to go on as long as it did. Had he been sacked months ago we still had a chance but for whatever reason the board failed to pull the trigger.

    Lennon and Lawells legacy ruined over this whole debacle.

    I’m sure Ryan Giggs’ brother remembers all the good times with him as well.

    Why would he want to set foot back into Celtic Park? A few days ago he claimed he received as much abuse from us Celtic supporters as he has never experienced before. So our abuse was worse than the death threats from huns and the attack at the mini huns. So why would he even come back to us who are worse than death threaters?
