Neil Lennon - Arrogant or Not

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/55708298

For me he has always been an arrogant prick - Is he taking this a step to far ?

Not bothered to read the article as I already know my answer to any question asking if Neil Lennon comes across as an arrogant my shit don't stink prick of the highest order is always going to be a resounding yes.

He is a complete twat.

And that is before reading it.

Having read it, he has not got a leg to stand on. Firstly, it is not the first Celtic violation of the season. Secondly, none of the other teams mentioned went on a training trip to Dubai, and were photographed having beers together. Their trip drew comment from the first minister.

They fucked up. the club has apologised.He should pipe down.

I think unnecessary travel in the current environment is a risk you don't need to take, yes they could have had an outbreak if they had stayed, but IMO it's a stupid decision. Lennon should just admit they got it wrong.

And yes he's an annoying prick.

Unrelated to the issue being discussed but I found it odd and never understood why Celtic brought him back after sacking him a few years earlier.

They were struggling to find a replacement at short notice when Brendan left them, and the continuity Lennon provided made him a relatively trusted and safe pair of hands given the dominant position. He had just been sacked by Hibs though, which should have been telling.

Though they are not exactly 'in crisis' he has not taken them on at all. They were handed the League last season, which Lennon agitated for. He is such a spikey personality. I hadnt actually seen the footage from tomorrow, but he is totally out of order. He is absolutely seething and they are bang to rights.

His air quotes on "privelege" anyway, it is brilliant to watch Celtic implode.

"Everybody is negative... bar 2 players.." That literally means everybody is not negative. Twat.

That conference will define his time as Celtic manager. Irrespective of the trophies and titles

They should have got a new manager in the summer alright.

I am surprised he hasn't been sacked yet.

That interview

I just find him a difficult one to judge, on paper he has won 5 SPL titles with Celtic, but only the first one was really his doing in a competitive league, the other two in his first spell were after Rangers were relegated. The first one when he came back was more or less wrapped up thanks to Rodgers and while you can be fairly sure that they would have won it last year technically it was handed to them. Maybe that's a harsh assessment but I never thought he was that good a manager and to be fair he has had to put up with alot of stick, but if I were a Celtic fan I wouldn't have wanted him back after he was sacked a few years earlier and then sacked by Hibs just before they appointed him.

Yep, he started well. But then it was literally a one horse race with Rangers being relegated to the bottom of Scottish Football. Then also without a couple of other teams who are likely to make it tricky at times Hearts for one season Hibs for 2.

He just causes trouble wherever he goes. He gets so wound up. One thing very much to Stevie G's credit is that he has learned this season to remain a bit more circumspect on the touch line.

Here he is at Tynecastle during the derby a few years back.

'Skinny Lattes and fire fired Organic Quinola Pies' I think your view of Tynecastle maybe slightly distorted, its not Murrayfield

He was actually pelted... only with a coin. Which changed the narrative a fair bit.

I was at the game.

This also happened. It was all orchestrated by Lennon, tbf, the game was a typical Edinburgh Derby shocker these were the only memorable moments.

I shouldn't but



I don't actually mind Lennon. His achievements in Europe during his first stint at Celtic are often overlooked.

As much as I am against any football hooliganism, and coin throwing. He definitely had it, or something like it, coming, or at least was insane to not expect it.

He played it off as he thought it was friendly banter between himself and the main stand at Tynecastle. as if. The home support were frothing even more than usual

...looks like he has the same PR advisor as Fat Sam and Fwank.

Lennon is a snide and always will be, also fancy him to get knocked out by Gerrard if he tried that 'calm down' shite at Ibrox.

If there are fans in Ibrox, I think Gerrard would be the least of his problems

Fuckin hell I hate Lennon. That video of him goading the Hearts fans would have been perfect if it had finished with Lennon being hit square in the forehead and knocked on his arse by a flying bottle of piss. Imagine the slo-mo. Bottle flush to forehead...slow stagger and fall...bottle suspended but spinning in the air...piss everywhere.

The delayed reaction and the careful lowering himself to the ground. PRICK!

Rafa was apparently on 19m a year in China.

Celtic would be lucky if they could offer him a tenth of that.
