Speaking to Football Insider, regular talkSPORT pundit Gabriel Agbonlahor has been wowed by Celtic and the ‘very strange’ run of form – going on to say that Neil Lennon is at a ‘massive’ risk of losing the dressing room as they gear up for a huge Europa League clash against AC Milan this evening.
The Hoops, who will remain bottom of the group regardless of a potential victory tonight, have been on a shaky run of form recently under Lennon – with the Celtic boss facing mounting pressure from sections of the media.
Should Celtic sack Neil Lennon?
No, give him time
Agbonalhor tips blow for Lennon
As they quest to make it ten SPFL titles on the trot, this unrest surrounding Lennon and his managerial appointment could lead to dressing room disputes – at least according to Agbonlahor.
The pundit, speaking to Football Insider, hints Lennon could be at risk of losing his players as they gear up for their clash with the Serie A giants this evening.
“I think managers are at risk when players aren’t performing for them and they’re not trying,” explained the talkSPORT regular.
“Managers are at a massive risk because it shows they have lost the changing room.
“I’m sure Neil Lennon will be trying to get the most of his players and he’ll be looking at who really wants to keep him in a job.
“It’s very strange to see them going through this spell, the only thing I can think of, and what I’m hearing, is he’s not motivating the players or some have fallen out with him.”
Transfer Tavern take
Whether or not Lennon has fell out with his players remains to be seen, but as Milan nears, it couldn’t have come at a worse time.
The historic Serie A giants have plenty of firepower in their ranks, and after the performance last Thursday, Lennon must be concerned about his side downing tools.
