Without a trophy to his name or Newspaper Poll calling for his sacking Steven Gerrard has decided to discuss the situation that Neil Lennon is in.
After three matches without a win the Celtic boss laid out some facts during a media conference after two newspapers ran a poll asking their readers if Celtic should sack their manager.
With circulation falling as much as advertising some newspaper editors might not want their own performances to be voted on by others without context.
Gerrard got the soft soap treatment earlier this year when he lost back-to-back matches 1-0 to Hearts and Hamilton with those sides at the bottom of the SPFL Premiership when those matches kicked off.
After 30 months in management without a trophy Gerrard said:
I don’t think you have to be a rocket scientist to work it out that whoever is in the best form seems to get a bit more peace in terms of scrutiny in the media and the questions that are fired at you.
You get a couple of indifferent results and that certainly changes very quickly and the heat comes in a different direction. That’s the way it is.
That’s what myself and Neil, or myself and Brendan (Rodgers) prior to Neil, have to live with. That’s the job we are in. That’s never going to change. I’m sure that it has been the same for many years and it will be in the future.
Tomorrow night Gerrard leads his Euro aces into action against Lech Poznan at Ibrox.
