Hugh Keevins reignited the Brendan Rodgers v Neil Lennon debate on Radio Clyde’s Super Scoreboard programme last night.

Game by game, goal for goal this season’s Celtic side is far superior to the way that the team was faring 12 months ago as the fall out between manager and Chief Executive found its way onto the pitch.

It was only at this stage last season that Rodgers’ side were finding some form, Ryan Christie’s introduction made everything fall into place on the back of beating Hearts in the semi-final of the Betfred Cup.

In contrast Lennon’s side have notched up a six at home to Ross County and a seven on the opening day of the season against St Johnstone. Changing the scene entirely was a 2-0 win at Ibrox in front of an over-hyped home support- a result in marked contrast to a pair of defeats at Ibrox last season.

Which Celtic side is the best to watch?

Although Lennon was in charge for the second match his hands were tied in terms of team selection with Oli Burke leading the forward line.

The debate between Lennon and Rodgers will run forever and a day without any answer, if the SPFL trophy remains at Celtic Park next summer most supporters won’t be caring as they celebrate a second run of nine titles in a row.
