Aberdeen Boss Derek McInnes Criticises Gary Caldwell Over His Neil Lennon Comments

Aberdeen Boss Derek McInnes Criticises Gary Caldwell Over His Neil Lennon Comments

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has taken aim at Gary Caldwell tonight, after the Partick Thistle boss suggested Neil Lennon brings a lot of trouble from supporters on himself.

Lennon was send sprawling to the ground after being struck by a coin in last night’s Edinburgh Derby at Tynecastle but his former Celtic team-mate Caldwell had little sympathy after the full-time whistle.

As we told you earlier today, the ex-Scotland international was appearing on BBC Sportsound to cover the evening’s games as a pundit, and after the drama had blown over, he said: “I think he brings a lot of it on himself.

“Whoever throws something from a stand should be ejected immediately but Neil Lennon was goading the fans as that goal got disallowed.

“As managers, coaches, players, we have to have a level of professionalism to not incite that and I think at times he does.”

Those comments were relayed to McInnes at his media conference this afternoon, and the Dons coach gave them short shrift, describing the remarks as ‘crass’:

What do you think of the situation surrounding Lennon’s conduct?

Was Caldwell right to make his initial comments? Or is McInnes correct in criticising the suggestion put forward?

Let us know in the comments section below…
