Defiant Neil Lennon gave no hint that he could resign from Celtic as he faced the media after the 1-1 draw at home to St Johnstone.
A run of two wins in 12 matches has left Celtic out of three cup competitions by the end of November with the SPFL title looking unlikely with a 13-point gap between the top two.
In midweek Peter Lawwell finally decided to communicate with the fans with a statement calling for unity which the manager has clearly taken as a sign of support for his role.
?? ‘Can I turn it around? Of course I can…’
Celtic manager Neil Lennon says his side needs to “turn it around very quickly” after falling 13 points behind Rangers in the Scottish Premiership with two games in hand.
Covering the remainder of the interview which was broadcast live on Radio Scotland, The Sun reports:
Asked if he feared his time was up, Lenny snapped: “I don’t fear anything. You ask me all these negative questions Kheradine and about my job. The club have already came out this week and said that they’ve backed me.
“I mean what more do you want them to do? I agree, the results aren’t good enough. It will improve, I’ve no question of that. Whether it’s on me or not then we’ll have to wait and see. But I can’t answer the questions that you’re asking.”
Three months later he was given the job on a permanent basis after beating Hearts in the Final of the Scottish Cup, the same clubs meet again in the 2020 Final at Hampden in two weeks’ time with Lennon showing every intention of leading Celtic into that match.
