    I'm more disappointed with Eddy than anyone else at the club. Yes, the responsibility is always the manager's; but I don't doubt how much Lenny wanted the 10 and how much he's trying at least. Eddy is so talented he only needs to give about 80% to walk the SPL, probably 60% to demolish a Championship team like Hearts and he can't even be * to give that.

    I'll always remember Eddy now as a guy that couldn't give a * the season we lost the 10. I loved the * too. I wish he'd been sold so I could hate Lawwell instead of him. I always thought Ntcham was lazy and only played for himself, but not Eddy. Gutted.

    Pirlo does a Panenka, he's a genius.

    Edouard does a Panenka, he's disrespectful.

    Could have cost us really, 3 clear sights of goal he had with no-one round him from 6-8 yards and hit 2 right at the keeper and one wide. Got to be burying one of them at least, Griffiths or Ajeti would have taken 1 if not 2 or 3.

    NEIL LENNON says that criticism of Odsonne Edouard for his ‘Panenka’ penalty in Sunday’s Scottish Cup Final is “complete and utter nonsense”.

    Pundit and former Rangers player Neil McCann had labelled the Frenchman as ‘disrespectful’ for chipping the ball past former teammate Craig Gordon from the spot, with the keeper himself subsequently being booked for throwing the ball at the celebrating Celtic players in anger.

    But Lennon has dismissed the furore around his striker, and says he would never dream of discouraging such freedom of expression in the future.


    “What, you want me to caution Odsonne for scoring a penalty in a cup final?” Lennon said. “Come on.

    “The Panenka has been around since 1976. I have seen great players doing it, I have seen (Andrea) Pirlo doing it against England. I don’t remember any of those individuals getting actually criticised or being called disrespectful. It’s just complete and utter nonsense.

    “Listen, I have seen players blast it over the bar, I have seen players hit the post, I have seen players scuff it, I have seen players miss penalties – I have seen Odsonne miss a penalty this year already. I have seen goalies making good saves.


    “That’s his way at that moment of assessing the situation and executing it, so he has my full blessing to do whatever he wants as long as it hits the net.

    “You cannot ask anyone to warn a player after he has scored a really beautiful goal in a really important game in a cup final, ‘Don’t do that again Odsonne, because some people think it’s disrespectful’.”

    He has been doing it frequently.

    I’d sell him in Jan. We can’t keep waiting for him to turn a corner. Even if it means a Bellamy/Keane type loan for 6 months * it.

    I have a feeling deep inside that hes going to come alive during the hun game. Hes pushing harder now. I can just see everything clicking for then. This is a strange year and people are feeling different. Play his song, I bet he would score 5. Infact quote me now. He will score no less than 2 goals at the new year.

    They're too old. Pretty sure both retired a long time ago.

    You can see he just thinks of Celtic as a stepping stone to somewhere "bigger", he doesn't seem to understand that there is no-where else bigger. Aye he shows flashes of brilliance but he misses loads of sitters which Griffiths would have taken no bother. His attitude is very disrespectful to Celtic and he should be made to play with the reserves and then get him to *.

    No, last time I checked I was posting a fair assessment of a player who is not performing to his full potential and action needs taken to address it.

    We can’t let him drift from game to game while he’s underperforming.

    Griffiths deserves an opportunity now.

    He's not putting up numbers at the moment but we need him to kick on and find his spark. We need to get him firing if we're going to go on a run and close the gap. I'd still be attempting to get him to sign a new contract.
    I don't think he's downed tools but just everything that's been happening has affected him.
