Neil Lennon has explained that he has the full backing of Peter Lawwell.

The Celtic boss was speaking at a media conference to preview the Europa League tie against Sparta Prague on the back of a banner protest at Celtic Park calling for his removal.

Celtic’s CEO has said very little in public this year but is closely tied to the manager that he appointed in the aftermath of the 2019 Scottish Cup Final win over Hearts at Hampden.

After a disastrous loss to Cluj in the Champions League last August Lennon galvanised his side to within two matches of a quadruple Treble as well as scoring impressive wins home and away against Lazio to reach the last 32 of the Europa League where they lost at home to Copenhagen.

This season has barely got started with a Champions League KO to Ferencvaros. In the SPFL Celtic are trailing by 11 points with just one point picked up from three matches in the Europa League with trips to Prague and Milan, who both won convincingly at Celtic Park, looming.
