[VIDEO] Neil Lennon: Prank Call To Tony Pulis Didn’t Sound Anything Like Me

Neil Lennon has praised West Brom manager Tony Pulis for his handling of a recent hoax call – but insists the prankster sounded nothing like him.

A practical joker – who pulled the phone stunt on Thursday night – managed to convince Pulis that he was in fact Bolton boss Lennon.

Speaking in a Northern Irish accent, the red-headed caller discussed with the unsuspecting Pulis the possibility of taking WBA defender Gareth McAuley on loan at the Trotters.

In today’s press conference ahead of their match against Watford, Lennon joked about the call – insisting the accent could have been a bit better.

He said: “He took it very, very well.

“It is funny, but it’s also a very dangerous precedent. I think he took it a loot better than I probably would have done.

“I’m surprised because the guy didn’t sound anything like me. Although, he did look like me.”
