    Hoping his pal Dudu cam get him a job in Israel :56:

    Absolutely no one in the UK will touch him. Proves what a disaster his second stint here actually was.

    Guy ruined his legacy here imo. Like others have said, if he'd have come out and admitted it wasn't working and that he took his share of responsibility and said its time for a change then yes in time I would've maybe forgiven.

    But to act the way he did and continues to do towards the players, club and especially the fans, the very people who gave him the support he needed over the years, that's unforgivable.

    To me, his image and memory will be nothing more than a * stain on our club from now on.

    Guys a *. Wouldn't even have him in the Ex Players section I'd wipe him completely from this board.

    But hey, that's just my opinion of him, others are very we'll entitled to have theirs.

    I know I'll get shot down for saying this as some people will view it as sacrilege...but I thought he was overrated as a player. I know there's a need in the game for the type of job he did, break up play and move it onto others quickly...but just think he was overran in a lot of high level European games. Should have posted this in Controversial Celtic Opinions thread...

    Absolutely right. I don’t think we’ll ever see someone given so much by this club and this support only to then treat that same support with so much contempt and, arguably, hatred.

    We had people on here as late as February defending him and arguing that he was hurting etc. when it turned out he was actually just looking after himself and couldn’t give a * about the ‘new fans’ that weren’t putting him above the club.

    Above all else he’s let those supporters down.

    NEIL LENNON has claimed some Celtic players pulled out of games when fit last season.

    The former Hoops gaffer opened up to SunSport on the club’s failed ten-in-a-row bid.


    Lennon left Parkhead in February and claims want-away stars dragged down the rest as Rangers romped to the title.

    He said: “We’d won nine titles in a row — four Trebles — and some players just got to the end of the road


    You could see it pre-season, the body language, they weren’t with us. You could smell it.

    "Some players were, I wouldn’t say feigning injury, but they could have played and didn’t.

    “This eats into the dressing room.

    "You’ve got great pros like Scott Brown and Callum McGregor, unbelievably successful, being dragged down by guys who don’t want to be there


    Before lockdown, we’d been rampant, we’d won at Lazio.

    "But after three months of players going home, the environment changed. Players found it difficult to adjust.

    “But Juventus didn’t win the league, PSG didn’t, Real and Barcelona didn’t, Liverpool won the league by 20 points, then lost six in a row at home.

    "It was unprecedented and we were the same.


    Did I want to leave? Not really. But you want to do what’s best for the club, especially with what Celtic means to me.

    “I won five out of seven trophies the second time, though, and Steven Gerrard has won one out of nine.

    “People think it’s easy coming up here but you have to win every week — a draw isn’t good enough.”


    Lennon is keen for a return to management this season and dismissed suggestions he’s too fiery.

    The former Celtic boss says all the best managers have an edge.

    He added: “When I first took the Celtic job, I was a firebrand. I wanted to fight the world.

    “In my second spell I was the essence of calm — too calm almost, going against my principles.


    People have a misconception of me being volatile, but I know how to win trophies.

    “I look at Pep Guardiola at Anfield and I love him for that. Sometimes your players need to see you fighting for them.”

    Just leave it lenny.

    Players didn't have a * clue what you were wanting and you with the board threw away the 10.

    And I'll keep saying it.....I am pretty convinced that is what the board wanted.

    Papped money on the huns and self saboteured
    Shame on pros being fuds but being a stubborn * and stealing a wage was pish

    And I said when lenny left he started this and will finish it.
    * how I was wrong

    Loved his dig about Gerrard only winning one trophy.

    Guy needs to step away from the cameras and shut up though, he’s a dreadful manager and just can’t accept it.

    cheating on his wife and threatening to slit the throat of some lassie he was having an affair with makes him a piece of *. Also his pal Gary Parker trying to cover it up and enabling his behaviour. And people think he should have got his on coaching staff ha

    Wouldn’t be a Lennon interview if he didn’t mention Lazio.

    Lennon wasn’t the right man for the job but players not giving everything in the 10 in a row season was unforgivable for me.

    Has he forgotten the infamous covid interview? Or the ferencvaros interview where he threw players under the bus? The polar opposite of calm.

    He called us hysterical for questioning our early performances and he now acknowledges that players had threw in the towel at that point.

    That's a manager's job to deal with. Either get them motivated again or speak with the board to get them moved on.

    Too little, too late again for you Neil....and again nothing is your fault.

    This is it.

    If he could tell during pre-season that some players wanted away then get them punted. There’s no chance teams wouldn’t have been interested in Edouard, Christie or Ajer last year.

    Excuse after excuse.

    Yet again, more * from Lennon to continue blaimg everyone bar himself for that shambles.


    If he had such little input to the job, then why the * did we pay him at all?

    Guys a absolute * and needs to really just * off already.

    Go drift in to obscurity in Israel already.
