Lennon warned not to go to war with Celtic fans

Lennon warned not to go to war with Celtic fans Rangers fan favourite Ally McCoist has warned Neil Lennon about going to war with Celtic supporters after he publicly criticised them earlier this week. Celtic are still on course to complete the ‘treble-treble’ ahead of their Scottish Cup Final against Hearts, but the mood was dampened in the green and white side of Glasgow last weekend following a toothless 2-0 defeat at Rangers. Fans weren’t happy after full-time, with some calling on Lennon to leave the club, which prompted the interim manager to hit back.

Yesterday it was announced that Celtic great Neil Lennon would return to the club as manager following a successful interim tenure where he guided the club to its third domestic treble in as many years.

The former Celtic captain replaces fellow Northern Irishman Brendan Rodgers, who moved to Leicester in February. When Rodgers left, a number of key figures in his set up left with him, including assistant manager Chris Davies and coach Kolo Toure. The latest to make the switch to the Premier League side is former head of recruitment Lee Congerton.

Celtic still Rodgers' team says Lennon

Celtic still Rodgers' team says Lennon Interim manager Neil Lennon has been in charge of Celtic since February following former manager Brendan Rodgers’ shock exit to Leicester City. In that time the team have clinched the league for the eighth time in a row and reached their third consecutive Scottish Cup final. Many fans have been critical of some of the teams’ performances during this period, with some disappointing draws and a defeat to Rangers at Ibrox for the second time this season. Celtic have also struggled to break teams down and have looked to be weary after a long campaign, something which Lennon has remarked upon more than once after matches.

Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell insists this is not a make or break season for manager Neil Lennon . Celtic finished just one point behind Rangers in the championship race last term and Lawwell thinks the outcome of the league may depend on the business done in this transfer window.

Peter Lawwell shows belief in Neil Lennon ’ s ability on Celtic news: Neil Lennon teases summer transfer | Express.co.uk. CELTIC caretaker boss Neil Lennon has teased fans with plans for a huge summer rebuild ahead of their clash with Aberdeen on Saturday.

Congerton’s departure was widely celebrated by fans who had criticised his signing record during his time at Celtic. However, for a modern day football club to be entering a transfer window without a head of player recruitment, it would be expected the club would be left on the back foot.

Newly appointed Celtic manager Neil Lennon confirmed this was not the case. Confirming he had been working on laying the groundwork before knowing if he was going to be the one to carry out this work. Speaking at his official unveiling, Lennon said:

“There’s been work ongoing behind the scenes for the last few weeks, regardless of whether I was going to be here or not.”

Peter Lawwell was very relaxed when asked about a new head of recruitment coming into the club, stating:

“Now that Neil is in we can keep calm and not rush and make the wrong appointment.”

With the decision to take time to appoint a head of recruitment it is clear that Peter Lawwell and the Celtic board feel this will not hinder the performance of the club in the transfer market this summer.

With Champions League qualifiers little over a month away the work which has been put in to prepare for the transfer window will soon be put to the test and we will find out if Lawwell’s faith in Neil Lennon’s ability in the transfer market will be enough to see us progress through to the group stages of the Champions League.

Neil Lennon happy for Nir Bitton to remain at Celtic next season.
Celtic boss Neil Lennon will allow Nir Bitton to remain at Celtic Park next season after urging the club to keep hold of the midfielder. According to Football Insider, club officials were discussing terminating the 27-year-old’s current deal, however, Lennon has now persuaded the Hoops to keep Bitton for next season. Bitton made just 10 appearances during Celtic’s ‘treble treble’ winning campaign last season, missing large parts with a knee problem. And with just 12 months remaining on his current deal, club officials were thinking about terminating Bitton’s contract before Lennon stepped in.
