Celtic Exclusive: Hoops need to replace Neil Lennon

Celtic Exclusive: Hoops need to replace Neil Lennon -Celtic News

Former Premier League midfielder Rob Lee believes that Celtic need a change after recent criticism surrounding manager Neil Lennon.

Lennon fizzled out?

The Irish tactician has come under immense scrutiny following their exit from Europe and they sit 13 points behind arch-rivals Rangers in the Scottish Premiership table.

This has led to mass protests from supporters, who have been unveiling banners outside Celtic Park calling for the board to “save the 10” and to sack Lennon.

As a player, Lennon won five titles to go with four as a manager, with his history possibly playing a part in the likes of Peter Lawwell and Dermot Desmond offering him a defiant vote of confidence (cited by the Daily Record), with Desmond in particular taking the decision to stick it to the protesters.

Who did Larsson make his debut against?

Speaking exclusively to Football Transfer Tavern however, Lee believes that Celtic must change course if they are to keep things fresh at Parkhead.

“I think he’s done brilliantly,” he said.

“You can’t do more than keep winning the treble every year and he’s continued that, but I think, sometimes, Celtic need a change, they need something different because it gets boring.

Transfer Tavern take

With Celtic so far behind in the standings, the supporters have made their feelings clear about Lennon’s position at the club – and will ultimately get their way.

Lee is spot on – everything the manager has done for the Bhoys over the years has emulated him to legendary status, but he now risks tarnishing that.

All good things come to an end at some point – and the 2020/21 campaign could be the beginning of just that.
