Celtic manager Neil Lennon is an unpopular man up at Parkhead right now.
The Irish tactician is under immense pressure after his side slipped a further three points behind arch-rivals Rangers on Saturday, following their woeful 2-1 defeat to St Mirren on home soil.
His team are 23 points behind Steven Gerrard’s side with two games in hand and suffered their sixth defeat of the season at Celtic Park in all competitions – something that has been unheard of during their domination of Scottish football in recent times.
Lennon reveals ‘exciting’ plan
Quoted by the Daily Record, he said: “The only thing that concerns me is how the market is in the summer.
“January has been very quiet and you’re worried it might be the same because we don’t know how financially strong clubs are going to be – or even how our own position is going to look then.
“In terms of rebuilding the squad, that’s always an exciting project for me, to bring in new blood and give the squad that extra impetus and freshness, which is always good for everyone.”
Transfer Tavern Verdict
We think Celtic and Lennon have missed the clear memo that has been sent out to them yet again, which will only incense the supporters further.
The majority of the fanbase want Lennon to be put out of his misery, with no action being taken ever since October. Out of the Europa League with nothing more than a whimper, no Betfred Cup, no title race, the season is virtually over for them now.
There have been worse performances than the St Mirren loss, Ross County for example, but hearing Lennon talk about summer plans, as if the decision has already been made for him to stay on next season, could be a huge blow to those that want him out.
