Neil Lennon Hits Back at Younger Celtic Fans Over Doubts He Should Be Permanent Boss

Neil Lennon Hits Back at Younger Celtic Fans Over Doubts He Should Be Permanent Boss

Neil Lennon has hit back at the younger generation of Celtic fans over doubts he should be their permanent boss.

The Hoops caretaker manager sat down in front of the media today ahead of his side’s final Premiership game of the season against Hearts on Sunday.

The league title is already secured and Sunday’s game at Celtic Park probably won’t be a dress rehearsal for the Scottish Cup Final against the Jambos as both teams are expected to rest players.

So the pre-match discussion surrounded Celtic’s 2-0 defeat to Rangers last weekend and more talk about Lennon’s future at the club.

Many frustrated supporters believe that game is further evidence he shouldn’t be the permanent replacement for Brendan Rodgers.

But Lennon has hit back at that argument, and any others who say he isn’t cut out to be manager.

Per Clyde Superscoreboard:

Would those be classed as Celtic Da comments?

Lennon will lead Celtic out on trophy day on Sunday before looking to clinch the treble treble with victory against Hearts at Hampden a week later.

He’ll be expected two impressive victories to help strengthen his case for the permanent job this summer.
