We’ve had a little time to digest Neil Lennon’s meltdown today, and yes, we’re going to cover it.
It’s actually bewildering, laughable that Lennon has played the victim here when not a single sanction has actually been carried out on his club, the SFA ignored it, and the government just told them off.
Meanwhile two Rangers players were banned for 7 matches for attending a party.
Lennon’s comments are those of a broken man, an emotional, reactionary pile of absolute nonsense which ignores the reality of the situation and simply pleads that they’re the wronged one.
That the whole world has seen what Celtic has done and been laughing at them tells its own story – of course, it’s much more serious than that, but that’s been the biggest punishment Celtic have faced.
And indeed, that’s why this meltdown is taking place.
Celtic have enjoyed being the centre of the hierarchy, being the institution and establishment – they thought the world loved them.
Now all this mockery and telling off is being meted their way and it’s literally the kid throwing his toys out of his pram and crying foul.
In short, what respect Celtic thought they commanded in Scotland and globally has been exposed as a sham, and melted away.
They are now a laughing stock, derided by the media and getting nothing their own way any more.
And they cannot handle this.
Hence the real punishment they’ve had is a complete loss of credibility.
And guess what – it’s hurting them. After being TGFITW the club is The Greatest Farce in the World and Lennon ain’t happy.
What a spoiled club.
