After his dramatic post-match interview with Neil Lennon, Kheredine Idessane has praised the Celtic board.
Idessane handled it very well, gently probing with some questions about the team performance, poor results and problems on the park before Lennon’s own position and future became the subject.
It had to be asked, the questions were well put with Lennon repeating his well-worn lines about having turned things around before and having the backing of the club to do the same again.
Funny thing is , I actually applaud the @CelticFC board’s loyalty to a man who bailed them when BR suddenly left. Secured the ‘treble treble’ and may make that a quadruple. But no one’s patience is eternal : as NL himself admits , results will dictate. And it’s now 2 wins in 12 https://t.co/eKhzkWtR3U

?? ‘Can I turn it around? Of course I can…’

That BBC interview proved to be more newsworthy than the all-in interview that Lennon had with the broadcast and written media.
Apart from moving the stats on to two wins in 12 matches the story never really moved on yesterday with the focus firmly on Peter Lawwell to follow up on last Tuesday’s call for unity in adversity.
