Former Scotland manager Alex McLeish was left confused by comments made by Celtic manager Neil Lennon.
The 2020/21 campaign will be a season that won’t be glorified by the Bhoys like the past nine. They find themselves 15 points adrift of arch-rivals Rangers before Sunday’s trip to Victoria Park to face Ross County.
Both Lennon and chief executive Peter Lawwell have found themselves under the Green Brigade’s magnifying glass – with calls made for both to be sacked. Lawwell announced he would be stepping down at the end of the season.
But Lennon told the Daily Record that “mitigating circumstances” have played their part in how things have played out this season, which he added that he cannot publically reveal.
Speaking to Football Insider, McLeish was mystified by what Lennon said and speculated whether there could be some sort of announcement made at some stage.
“When you make a statement like that then it does raise eyebrows,” he said.
“Whether we’ll hear something at a later time, you would probably imagine that something would come out. Maybe now’s not the right time for them to release it.
“That is their prerogative, you can’t force Celtic to give answers, it’s possibly not the time to announce anything.”
Transfer Tavern Verdict
These comments by Lennon may open a new can of worms which, most likely, will not help the club in any shape or form.
After previously undermining his chief executive, it now appears that the supporters are set to be put through further misery, rather than the team focusing on the task at hand on the pitch.
We are not sure how this season could get much worse for Celtic. But if those details are revealed, it may do exactly that.
