Neil Lennon has told his post match media conference that he is the man to turn around Celtic’s incredible slump.

Many fans would suggest that he is the biggest cause of the run of two wins in nine matches that have left the club 11 points behind domestically and out of the Europa League with two matches left to play.

The Daily Record reported Lennon saying:

I’ve been in situations like this before as a manager and player. There is no reason for me to believe we won’t turn this around.

Tonight’s 4-1 defeat to Sparta Prague was a summary of the problems that have dogged the club since they crashed out of the Champions League to Ferencvaros back in August.

Sparta inflicted defeat number four of the season last month then repeated the 4-1 scoreline tonight on their home patch.

Chris Jullien came into central defence but whether it is the Frenchman, Nir Bitton or Shane Duffy the problems persist with 13 goals lost in four Europa League group matches.

Celtic’s next match is at home to Ross County on Sunday in the Betfred Cup.
