He should have walked months ago and whoever is in charge of player recruitment should have gone with him.

He was probably sorting out a golden handshake, Buffy.

Sun article penned by ex Celtic View staff writer so thought it would be pretty accurate when i first heard.

I`d imagine it`s got a lot to do with season ticket sales.

Was an arrogant appointment in the showers at Hampden. Not a surprise it’s ended so badly. It always does for Neil Lennon.

Massive rebuilding job now there, but as someone has already said, the head of recruitment needs to go next. Rangers currently hold all the cards, excellent manager, strong coaching staff and a very highly regarded and functional executive structure. Celtic have none of that right now.

Kennedy interim manager! He was a defender & one of Celtic's biggest problems is defending. What was his input at training??? Celtic fans don't want him either.

I'd have called it a bizarre appointment. Did Peter Lawwell think someone would poach Lennon, if he didn't go into the showers to err... tie the knot?

I have no liking for Celtic but for Lennon as a man I wish him well.
Never rated him as a manager but the bigotry he has faced is appalling

I thought he was older than 49 as I remember the McCoist spat at Parkhead and that feels like a lifetime ago.
I know it is about results and The Rangers must be feeling very positive about things on the park. I am interested in how much debt has been accumulated and in the form of soft / firm commitments to obtain the Championship win.

A decent amount will be offset by Europa league run earnings and getting to champions league but certainly not a sustainable model. May need to finally accept the £300million from the chinese super league for Alfredo to offset loses

I’m sure any debt incurred will be last thing on rangers mind.
Both sides will have huge losses this season.
Celtic have a total re build now which will cost tens of millions, albeit with some saleable assets in Eduard and Christie but price will be less than they were last year, this is where Celtic broke their own football transfer model by letting players into their last year.
Rangers have a strong squad and for the first in a long time saleable assets.
The football model is clearly working on the pitch. With possible guarantee CL entry and 2-3 sales in summer, can’t see any concerns.

Some good points dafc ... I think qualification to the CL would be the icing and not only repay the short term interest free loans but perhaps consolidate a long term financial structure for the club

To back up what Jbob said, a tweet from ex-BBC man, Jim Spence.


I’ve no view on Neil Lennon’s departure. That’s a football decision. But I have a view on his treatment in Scotland. Vile anti catholic anti Irish bigotry marked much of it. Those who washed their hands of it show us what kind of country we were and are capable of being.

Be interesting to see who his replacement will be, seen Lampard and Clarke referenced so far as potentials.

I`m sure Clarke already talked about the sectarian problem when he was manager of Kilmarnock, when asked about bringing his family up to Scotland??
Based on that, I`m not sure he would want to expose himself or his family to high levels of abuse?

I suppose the benefit is that there is little expectation right now. This season has been very poor for Celtic.

I'd imagine many managers may be wary due to the sectarianism in Glasgow. It's not just in the fans, it's in the offices, the pubs and even the media.
