Neil Lennon has now been announced as Celtic’s permanent manager for the second time and some fans are not happy about the appointment.
Many Celtic fans have taken to social media to vent their frustrations at Celtics somewhat cheap option as they announce Lennon as Celtic manager, but in my eyes its a safe option if we want to secure ten in a row, Celtic fans are hitting out at the way Lennon has been playing our beloved Celtic team tactically but the Celtic Legend has just secured the historical Treble Treble, theres not much more he could do.
We all really need to sit and think about it, our squad has been declining from the first day of the season as its clear the Celtic board and Brendan Rodgers have had problems so much so that they weren’t going to give Rodgers money to spend if he was already thinking about leaving the Scottish Champions after rumours of an offer from the Chinese League were circulating.
Rodgers left Celtic in turmoil, he knew the squad were fatigued and plagued with injuries that he feared that the Treble might not happen and bailed on Celtic by the back door route without a goodbye.
Lennon saved Celtic yet again and got us over that line, it might not have been the best display of football but for fans to actually say that its going backwards with Lennon at the helm is absurd, this is not his squad or his style infact Lennon’s preferred formation is a 3/5/2 attacking style alternating with 4/4/2, Lennon’s record speaks for itself as the Irish gaffer has managed 227 games and only lost 39 of them with Celtic.
The last time Lennon took over Celtic he also had a massive overhaul to orchestrate, and Lennon signed key players such as Kayal, Stokes, Hooper, Forster, Wanayama, Mulgrew, Izaguirre, Commons and Ledley who were all vital players for Celtic and pivotal in Lennon’s success in Europe.
Some Celtic fans might have wanted a big name manager but we must get behind Lennon as he will make Celtic a force in Europe again, it might not be his first season but it will happen.
