Celtic fans on Twitter weren’t happy with Neil Lennon in yesterday’s derby win

Celtic fans on Twitter weren’t happy with Neil Lennon in yesterday’s derby win

At the end of the day, football is a results business and nothing more than that. However, despite masterminding a win yesterday, Neil Lennon did more to prove he’s not the man to take the Bhoys forward long term as he almost cost the home side an Old Firm victory with his bizarre in-game changes and lack of decent management.

The Hoops were struggling to make the most of their one-man advantage in the second half as Alfredo Morelos had been sent off in the first-half, and Neil Lennon’s naivety saw them sacrifice the one advantage they had. Dedryck Boyata suffered an injury after all three substitutions had been made, leaving the home side reduced to ten men in the same way that the Gers had been in the opening 45 minutes.

Of the three subs that the Hoops made, only one of them was entirely necessary. When Jonny Hayes was hooked at the break it left plenty of the Bhoys baffled, and then when Lennon opted to withdraw Olivier Ntcham for Tom Rogic it raised more question marks. All it took from there was injuries to Boyata and Keiran Tierney for the final sub to made and the home side’s numerical advantage to be wiped, and the home crowd were quick to blame Lennon for the blunder.

You can read the Hoops’ verdict on Lennon’s changes here:

The Hoops were far from happy with Neil Lennon yesterday and whilst he’s done a great job so far, he most certainly isn’t the man to take the job on permanently in the summer.
