Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton fumed at the Bhoys supporters who were behind the banner and statement about manager Neil Lennon.
Sutton not impressed
The North Curve Celtic published a lengthy description on Twitter of their views on the Irish tactician, along with a message that stated: “Save the 10 – time to go Neil.”
Celtic find themselves 11 points behind arch-rivals Rangers in the Scottish Premiership table and are yet to pick up a win in Europe this season, with their reverse fixture against Sparta Prague scheduled later today.
This enraged Sutton, who posted on his Twitter exactly what he thought of those responsible.
“Some of the Green Brigade and Celtic fans who thinks that is acceptable to treat a club legend and brilliant servant like Neil Lennon with this amount of disrespect need to have a good look at themselves.”
Transfer Tavern Verdict
With an unprecedented 10-in-a-row hanging in the balance, a segment of the Parkhead faithful have made their feelings clear. But as Lennon has won four league titles as manager and five as a player, Sutton’s frustrations are completely justified.
Lennon is a club legend and should be treated like one. On the other hand, the supporters have every right to be frustrated with recent results, having dropped more points last weekend against Hibernian.
Time will tell what chief executive Peter Lawwell decides to do. Whatever his judgment, it could make or break Celtic’s season.
