Charlie Nicholas has ducked out of naming names in his latest attack on Celtic.

The former Arsenal striker has found his media portfolio cut back to a once a week column in The Express where he has been predicting doom for Celtic for a number of years.

Almost all of the Celtic squad have underperformed this season but while he claims that there are five or six players not doing the business he backs out of naming any of them.

Celtic supporters have been more critical than anyone of recent results and performances but the thoughts of Nicholas and Kris Commons are far from welcomed by supporters.

Most supporters were happy with the quality of players brought in during the transfer window with the complaint being that they should have been signed in June and part of the side that faced Ferencvaros in the Europa League.

Picking up on his column in The Express, The Sun reports Nicholas saying:

Celtic are in the midst of a run of games in which they are vulnerable and look stretched to the limit. They are on shaky ground.

Lennon was brought back to the helm because the club knew their squad was the strongest in the country and he would guide them to success.

The manager insists there is no panic but if they lose to Lille in the Europa League on Thursday and get knocked out of the Scottish Cup – killing their hopes of a fourth successive treble in the process – then it would transform the whole outlook of the season.

That would put things under serious review, and I’m not referring to Lennon’s job. I mean, who is the manager going to trust in terms of his players and the formation he deploys? There is a long way to go in the title race.

This is not the time to hit the panic button, but Lennon has a lot of pressure on him because there are five or six players in his starting line-up who aren’t doing the business.

Nicholas’ next media appearance will be next Tuesday following the Scottish Cup semi-final against Aberdeen.
