So, in some terrible news, Neil Lennon finally quit. Of course, you all know this, and the net has been on meltdown with the news, awash with banter.
To add to the Barrier and Banner Years engulfing Celtic, they’ve appointed John Kennedy as interim boss, which is kind of like replacing Dumb with Dumber.
But hey ho, whatever floats your boats, chaps.
The reality is though just how bad Neil Lennon always was as a manager.
He’s been a complete failure in all his years as boss.
Walter Smith completely destroyed him in 2010/2011, and Lennon won his first title against a Rangers falling into admin and having had a 15-point deduction.
Then he went to Bolton and managed a hilarious 22% win streak which might be one of the worst numbers we’ve seen.
Then he returned to Brendan Rodgers’ machine-like Celtic, literally couldn’t fail with no proper Rangers there (Steven Gerrard still finding his feet) and proceeded to win the title in 2019, before being voted the title in 2020.
Rangers, in 20/21, finally found their feet and completely humiliated Celtic and Lennon.
So, the reality is, he’s a complete and total managerial failure who has never won a title going toe to toe with anyone.
Now, we’re not horrible – we know he suffered grief as manager the past two months and it’s only human to sympathise with that, regardless of his own past conduct.
But as a manager, he’s a complete joke, and we’ve loved the last season of Celtic and he floundering.
Sadly, he’s resigned, and in time Celtic might actually appoint a manager, but for now the Barrier Years continue at Parkhead as Rangers close in inevitably on 55.
