Neil Lennon admitted to a lack of unity after watching Celtic crash to a 4-1 defeat from Sparta Prague that confirmed their Europa League exit.
It was just the latest blow in a run of despair that has saw Celtic lose 21 goals during a run of two wins in nine matches.
After being knocked out of the Champions League by Ferencvaros Lennon spoke out about players wanting to leave.
Following the home defeat from Sparta Prague he revealed that a culture change is needed while the weekend draw at Hibs raised the question of laziness and a lack of hunger.
Lennon is firmly in the firing line as Celtic fans despair over a season that is going badly wrong when it promised so much after the way the side stormed to last season’s title.
After last night’s defeat to Sparta Prague The Sun reports the Celtic boss saying:
There’s no reason for me to believe that we won’t turn it around. They’re an excellent group. I think they are just lacking a little bit of unity at the moment. I don’t know if it’s because we’re living through a pandemic and it’s not normal.There’s things that are maybe out of their control a little bit and I think they’re missing the atmosphere in the stadiums as well
Lennon’s after match comments have been full of contradictions, it remains to be seen if he hosts a media conference to preview Sunday’s Betfred Cup tie at home to Ross County.
