    Yes - just listing things Lennon won as a player and manger is a very simplistic view.

    The fact is that his second spell was IMO a disaster and actually looks better than it was due to 3 fortunate cup final wins (particularly the Betfred against Rangers).

    The football has gotten progressively worse since he took over and this season has largely been an embarrassment on the pitch and he has been one off it.

    People have different opinions on Lennon as a player and on his first tenure as manager - that's fine if the topic is his legacy. No-one is disputing what he achieved between 2000 + 2014 - the thing is that it has * all to do with the damage he's done in the last 24 months.

    All this "Haters gonna Hate" * - I don't hate Lennon and I've never indulged in personal criticism - only professional.
    I wish him all the best in the future (although I honestly think he's done as manager at any sort of top level) and I'd welcome him back to Celtic Park.

    In terms of legacy - we should look at his contribution to the club over 20 years.

    However, you don't have to be a "hater" to accept that it was a major mistake to bring him back and that he has dragged the club massively backwards in the last 2 years. IMO he should have resigned or been sacked 4 months ago. Listing stuff from 20 years ago doesn't change that

    His legacy as a player is untouchable.

    His legacy as our manager is in tatters.

    Good post.

    I would add that there's a massive element of 'randomness' in football, even over the course of a full season.

    In Lennon's case, he was massively fortunate to have Forster in goals throughout most of his time here.

    Thank you for posting these results. I have no idea how did we collapse so badly one season after beating the 2. Serie A team that year, twice. Lennon either had massive help from staff which was fired, or...:39:

    I think this is the guy that had a go at me 2 seasons ago when I suggested getting Lennon to *. Granted I suggested booting him down the Celtic Way but he took it pretty thick. Pretty sure it was him.

    Unlikely, given the fact that he joined the forum in 2020.

    Will never forgive him for the damage he’s done.

    Massive rebuilding job for the next manager.

    Man is a * should have been gone gone at the start of the season. In fact the * should never have been appointed.

    We live and learn. Let's just forget about him and move on. What's done is done.

    Good player for Celtic in a good MON team and latterly Strachan but we’ve had a lot of good players, as far as being a legend no where near it jn my eyes even as a player
