A former Celtic View reporter has warned that ‘Lawwell and Desmond won’t now want to be seen to be bowing to the neds’.

The comment was retweeted by Stephen McGowan of the Daily Mail while Celtic issued a statement condemning the fans that gathered to protest after the 2-0 defeat from Ross County. The statement mentioned the management team and players being targeted with missiles. On Twitter the only missile pictured was an inflatable shark that had decided to protest!

A small number of fans did chant inappropriately about Neil Lennon which has absolutely no justification but amid two wins in 10 matches, four consecutive home defeats and being out of three competitions before the start of December the chanting isn’t quite the pressing issue.

Sullivan worked for Celtic while Martin O’Neill was manager. His biography of Sean Fallon is one of the best publications on the history of the club, these days he works for FIFA.

With no communication from the club about the run of results it is understandable that fans that paid out £500 and upwards for a Season Ticket to watch matches from home are concerned at the way the season is developing.

Ironically Lennon has in the past provided an outlet and bridge between the supporters and the elderly leadership of Celtic with the detachment across the club highlighted by the protests and the statement.

Further developments are expected today with McGowan in the Daily Mail reporting that Lennon faces crunch talks over his future this morning.
