Brattbakk Makes Relatable Claim On Lennon’s Legacy

Harald Brattbakk insists that Neil Lennon will be classed as a Celtic immortal when he secures 10 in a row for the Hoops

The consecutive Scottish football champions have now begun their 10 in a row season against Hamilton Accies.

Neil Lennon was the man who kick started Celtic’s quest for ultimate domestic bliss and Brattbakk knows Lennon will understand what’s at stake this year.

But so too does Brattbakk, who was part of the Parkhead side who stopped Rangers winning a historic 10 in 1998.

The former striker scored one of the most important goals in Hoops history and can relate to the pressure all these players are under.

“It’s an incredible journey,” he told The Sunday Post.

“Neil Lennon was also the manager when it all started in 2012. He left, Ronny Deila and Brendan Rodgers continued the good work, and then Neil came back.

“I’m sure he’s already a Celtic legend, and rightly so. But to lead the club to 10 would take it to another level.

“I am not taking anything for granted, and I’m certain that is the message that Neil will be giving his players every single day.

“However, I am hoping that the club achieves what needs to be done, and that I can get a ticket for the Championship party in May next year.

“But, naturally, they need to do what is required to win it, first of all.”
