Andy Walker has called on the Celtic board to make the tough decision to sack Neil Lennon.
Two club statements over seven days suggest that it is a situation that the club has looked at but in last night’s statement they admitted that the situation will be reviewed in the new year.
With Celtic currently 13 points behind in the title race the January 2 trip to Ibrox looks like D-Day for Lennon but many fans would rather see a new face in charge long before that fixture.

Most former Celtic players have hedged their bets with Lennon, highlighting his past record and holding back from the obvious conclusion over a season that looks close to being washed out before Christmas.
Celtic face Lille on Thursday night in a match of academic interest only with a record of two wins in 12 matches as they prepare to face the French side.
Lennon was given a 12 month rolling contract in May 2019, it seems that the Celtic board will stick with that decision regardless of results and performances that have brought a wave of criticism from fans on Social Media.
