Celtic had another disastrous Euro result last night against Hungarian champions Ferencvaros as they shockingly won 2-1 at Parkhead to progress to the third qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League., but former Hoops legend John Hartson took to Twitter to defend his old comrade.
Its not unusual for fans to be angry at losing a match but to lose in such an idiotic way yet again as Lennon thought it was ok to play with no natural striker, the gaffer said Ajeti wasn’t fully fit but Klimala has proved himself and deserved to get the nod.
Not only that, both our defenders who are over 6ft and big lads failed to have any physical input in the game as we let in two very sloppy goals.
The Celtic manager seems to hate giving his subs any real time to change a match, Lennon only brought on a striker when Celtic were behind 2-1, Ajeti and Klimala should have came on at 1-1 to push for a winner.
We understand that Hartson feels the need to back Lennon, but his tactics were all over the place once again, even Scott McDonald felt the need to chip in and state that Lennon should be keeping personal information in-house regarding certain players who want to leave.
Neil Lennon will always have the backing of the Celtic support but the fans are also the one’s forking out good money every season to watch silly defeats such as last night and Cluj, Lennon is the man incharge and will be due criticism when he gets it wrong.
When you start a match with no striker its always going to be a tough game, Celtic in the current state aren’t a Champions League club and unless Lawwell gets his cash book out, we will find it difficult to get into Europa League also.
Some fans are stating the fact we have spent around £10 million so far but in reality when you break it down, Celtic have only replaced departed players and haven’t actually added extra, or barely have.
The club have lost 10 players including load departures and have only signed Barkas and Ajeti as permanent transfers.
Lennon must get new faces in the door or it’s going to be a long and gruelling season ahead.
