With Neil Lennon removed from the crime scene Chris Sutton has turned the spotlight onto Peter Lawwell and the Celtic board.
After surviving a horrendous run of results it seems strange that a 1-0 defeat at Ross County turned out to be one too many with Lennon’s resignation announced at 7am on Wednesday morning.
The alarm bells were ringing in October, during November the fans were protesting outside Celtic Park after a fourth successive home defeat, something that hadn’t been notched up since the fifties.
Inside Celtic Park the board sat in silence, oblivious to the calls for change. On December 7 a managerial review was announced for the new year but it was never delivered.
Last week Chairman Ian Bankier shared a message to supporters announcing no hasty decisions. Tonight, he has an Interim Manager and a CEO counting down the pay days till retirement.
Neil Lennon left far too late and this is bound to have a knock on effect ? https://t.co/dJTKqNDRGD

I think that Neil should have stepped down after defeat from Ross County in the League Cup, that was back in November.
There was been no comment from Celtic since the announcement of Lennon’s resignation. Sutton and Celtic fans are looking closely for signs that those inside the club have a plan to ensure that this season is a one off, domestically.
