Celtic’s interim manager Neil Lennon has hit out at the Scottish media and Rangers after numerous newspaper articles and social media posting about the Celtic legend’s ability of taking on the job permanently.
Lennon has accused many members of the media of trying to put a negative spin on the way his Celtic squad have retained the league for the eighth time in a row. Lennon used the headline ” Celtic stuttered over the line ” which was used in an article describing the lack of style in the way Celtic clinched the league.
But Lennon backed his record and his teams efforts by stating that Celtic won the title very comfortable and are on course for the historic Treble Treble, and rightly so.
Celtic have still to announce if Lennon will be taking the job on a permanent basis or if they will go in another direction as many high profile names have been getting thrown about such as Rafa Benitez, Jose Mourinho and Moyes has been spotted on numerous occasions over the last few weeks.
Neil Lennon has backed his own managerial record at Celtic stating he has won four Scottish Leagues and Two Scottish Cups along with many more as a player for the Hoops, so he knows whats it takes to bring success to this club as hes been doing it since 2000.
Lennon has a great win percentage also as hes managed Celtic in 227 matches and has won 159 of them giving his a staggering 70% win rate. Neil also stated to the media that hiring a big name in football doesn’t guarantee you success, obviously referring to the hiring of Steven Gerrard at rivals Rangers.
