It is business as usual at Lennoxtown today with Neil Lennon scheduled for a media Zoom call to preview Sunday’s match against Ross County.
Last night’s defeat from Sparta Prague brought a fresh wave of derision from supporters even though they are growing accustomed to watching their since lose. Last night’s Europe League defeat was the fifth time this season that the hoops have tasted defeat.
Peter Lawwell seems completely unconcerned by the run of results that sees Celtic trailing by 11 points domestically after suffering their second European KO of the season before the end of November.
Discussing Lennon’s future, The Sun reports:
The Northern Irishman looks set to remain in charge of affairs for Sunday’s Betfred Cup meeting with Ross County – after the Hoops confirmed he would be fulfilling his pre-match media duties for that match as usual.
The Hoops boss is scheduled to conduct his normal series of teleconferences this lunchtime to preview the match as the hours tick down to Sunday’s Betfred Cup clash with the Highlanders at Parkhead.
Lennon insisted this week that chief executive Peter Lawwell was “very, very supportive” of him – and took umbrage at the notion that anything in that would have changed after the Sparta Prague match.
There isn’t much new that Lennon can add to last night’s media appearances where he tried to find positives from another disastrous defensive performance.
Shane Duffy, Nir Bitton and Chris Jullien have all been tried in central defence but the goals have continued to flow with 21 conceded in the last nine matches.
