‘THE RANGERS ’ tonight issued the most remarkable statement ever released by a Scottish football club. Celtic blogger James Forrest has voiced the astonishment among the Celtic support on reading this narrative, which looks more like a declaration of war than anything else.

One user said: " Celtic fans protested against Celtic players and management, why bring Rangers and Ayr Utd into the discussion it has nothing to do with those clubs Nicola Sturgeon?" In a statement , the club added: “For players and a management team, who have given so much in recent years and

Celtic fans have understandably reacted angrily to Peter Lawwell’s statement calling for “strength in adversity”.

The chief executive’s message to fans was seen as the club standing behind under-fire boss Neil Lennon as he called for a coming together.

It did not go down well with Celtic fans and certainly raised a few eyebrows amongst Scottish football.

@TOPJBHOY: “If Peter Lawwell thinks this is an adequate response for complete mismanagement this season, boy, has he read the room wrong. Completely deluded.”

@Daniel_6_G: “Essentially Lennon is going to be allowed to cost us the Scottish Cup before he gets the sack. Tone deaf. Lawwell needs to go.”

Four Findings: Hibernian 2-2 Celtic

  Four Findings: Hibernian 2-2 Celtic Celtic were able to rescue a point after completing a comeback from two goals down on Saturday at Easter Road. Despite some good first-half pressure from Celtic, both sides entered halftime scoreless. Hibs opened the scoring after Jamie Murphy scored the rebound after Scott Bain saved the penalty in the 52nd minute. Kevin Nisbet scored in the 59th minute to give the hosts a 2-0 advantage. Celtic’s comeback started in the 79th minute when Odsonne Edouard scored from the penalty spot. Diego Laxalt opened his scoring account for Celtic with a thumping strike in extra time.

@NoNotThatDevlin: “Kind of blown away by how ill-judged that statement is. Makes clearer than ever the disconnect between club and fans.”

@jucojames: “Lawwell would be well served to read up on the 2nd law of thermodynamics and entropy- rather than introduce a "refrigerator effect" he just poured lighter fluid into the mix. Just so bad and incompetent on so many levels.”

@Lorenzo__LP: “TLDR: ‘We already have your cash’”

@TenMenWonTheLea: “‘Adversity’ caused by your inability to remove a manager who is bereft of any plan to get us out of this crisis #sacktheboard”

@Rissy67_: “The worst f****** statement I think I’ve ever seen, and I witnessed Rangers from 2012-2020.”

@twistandturns_J: “Deary me, I preferred the silence.”

Four Findings: Celtic 0-2 Ross County

Vasilis Barkas returned to the starting XI, stepping in for Scott Bain, but the visitors opened the scoring from a Ross Stewart penalty in the 39th minute.

In a statement , Celtic vowed to investigate the disorder and condemned the violent scenes as "unacceptable". It said it shared the "huge disappointment" of Celtic supporters but "there can be no excuse for some of the violent scenes at Celtic Park this evening".

Celtic released a statement saying they will investigate what happened. Tight-lipped on the fate of the fate of their manager, Celtic issued a strongly worded statement attacking the actions of fans as the SPFL seek talks with the Scottish Government over a return to grounds for supporters .

@KierenLaverty: “What needs to be answered..

- why the lack of youth development to 1st team.

- why the failure in European football

- why 5 points behind (league)

- why out of the cup

- why the lack of tactical changes during matches

- why in every game this season is there a lack of drive

@CelticFC”

@StuartHemple: “Incompetence of the highest order, Lawwell should go aswell. He's been at the club for far too long.”

@euan__cfc: “Scapegoats fans to deflect from their man in the dugout making a s*** job of this season then have the cheek to ask for unity?”

@SeanFrancis93: “’This is not about any individual, but about Celtic Football Club as a collective.' Listen to the collective opinion then and make a change in the dugout.”

Other fans:

@RFBorthwick: “Hearts losing a cup final to Neil Lennon's Celtic will be more embarrassing than any other result that goes against us this season.”

@Nareystoepoker: “This isn't going to appease anyone. Peter Lawwell doesn't even bother trying to make an argument in favour of persisting with Neil Lennon here, presumably because there isn't a strong one.”

Democrats and conservative critics of President Donald Trump have begun creating ‘blacklists’ of his staff and supporters , apparently hoping to shun them from polite society as divisions grow wider amid a contentious election.

@OwenJamesBrown: “Manage to fill up the word count pretty swiftly without actually saying anything else of interest - a lovely tribute to Lennon’s pals in the media.”

@craigvickers_: “Every action from Celtic in the past two days - from the board to the manager - suggests they've been caught cold by this slump in form, when just about every performance metric predicted this malaise. Complacency/arrogance? You choose.”

@J_WTB1: “More statements than victories in the last 8 weeks.”

@EvanMcFarlane: “Can I once again just reiterate my support for Celtic noising their own fanbase up as much as humanly possible for no reason at all.”

Ewan Henderson has handed Lennon a selection headache after solid Lille display [Opinion] .
Celtic recorded a much-needed victory on Thursday night in their final Europa League fixture against Lille. Neil Lennon made multiple changes to his side against the Ligue 1 outfit, with Ismaila Soro and David Turnbull starring at Parkhead. Turnbull scored the winner and set up Christopher Jullien’s opener, whereas Soro won 10 tackles on the night – Lille’s entire team won 15 between them. (WhoScored) The midfield duo were Celtic’s highest-rated players in the 3-2 win and have done their chances of featuring on Sunday against Kilmarnock no harm.
