Celtic fans may have fallen for the romanticism of Neil Lennon’s appointment after Brendan Rodgers left the club, but their former manager has done a great job of showing why he left the first time around. The Bhoys drew 0-0 away at Hibs yesterday, and it was a day to forget as Lennon got it oh so wrong against his former club.

Since Neil Lennon took over at Parkhead on February 26th the Bhoys have failed to score in three of their seven Scottish Premier League clashes. Those three games have all ended 0-0 so at least they’re not losing those games, but bore draws against Hibs, Livingston and Aberdeen are way below the expectations of Celtic fans, who demand only the best when featuring domestically.
As far as the Hoops are concerned though, Lennon just keeps getting it wrong. His poorly timed substitutions and lack of an effective tactical set-up are costing the Hoops too often, and whilst he may be limping over the line for the treble-treble on the back of the good work Rodgers did, results like yesterday are going a long way to prove that he isn’t the man for the job in the summer.

Today is further proof that Lennon isn't the man for next season.

Lennon is dreadful

Lennon been in charge for 7 league games we've failed to score in 3 of those. Its brutal to watch. His starting 11 and subs are baffling.

Three games under lennon finished 0-0 I think

The Bhoys are desperate to get over the line in the race for the title and will just hope they can avoid any more 0-0 draws as they look to kick on and win another two trophies this season.
