Andy Walker savages Neil Lennon’s Celtic legacy

Andy Walker has delivered a savage verdict on Neil Lennon after it was announced that the Irishman had resigned as Celtic boss.

Last month the former Celtic striker was in the firing line from Lennon after claiming that the trip to Dubai had been a jolly.

Lennon warned that he would withdraw player access for Sky Sports but that threat was quickly overturned by Celtic.

Walker has been on duty at most of Celtic’s recent matches including Sunday’s trip to Dingwall where Ross County inflicted a final defeat on the under-fire Celtic boss.

After the defeat Lennon claimed that he was the man to rebuild the squad in the summer but at 7am this morning his resignation was announced to the Stock Market.

We’ve known for some time it wasn’t working out for Neil Lennon this season for whatever reason. The defeat at Ross County was clearly the last straw. I didn’t see an improvement in any of the players.

I don’t see any improvement on the level of performance from some of the players. I don’t think a number of players were with Neil Lennon entirely this season. And I think it’s been reflected in results.

When the dust has settled Neil Lennon will be remembered as a terrific Celtic player and a successful Celtic manager but, I think when you go and get someone like Brendan Rodgers, who has a proven track record of improving players, playing good football and enjoying a bit of success, I think the least the Celtic supporters expect is for you to identify someone in that category, someone with that identikit, to continue that good level of performance.

I think the biggest criticism that you can level at Neil Lennon is just show me one player that has improved in the last 12 months under Neil Lennon? I don’t think I could find you one.

John Kennedy will take charge of Celtic on an Interim basis with his first match in charge on Saturday at home to Aberdeen.
