Tom English wasn’t prepared to discuss anyone with an opinion contrary to the sympathetic image of poor Neil Lennon portrayed by Radio Scotland.

The former Celtic boss was given the red carpet treatment by the state broadcaster as he absolved himself from any blame over the disastrous season that he walked out on. It seems that it was all the fault of 200 nasty supporters who protested after a 2-0 home defeat from Ross County in the Betfred Cup.

That was the fourth successive home defeat that Celtic fans had watched from home, coming three days after a second 4-1 Europa League embarrassment from Sparta Prague.

With the prospect of a return to management looking bleak Lennon is repackaging himself for media work with most of the ills for last season being put at the door of the indulgent, entitled Celtic supporters.

During a recent interview with The Times, Lennon claimed that there was a new breed of Celtic fan that he didn’t identify with. It seems that tuned in fans with facts and opinions isn’t welcomed by Lennon, or his media friend English who prefers to lecture his views to listeners without being able to handle any contrary views.

During his Radio Scotland and Times interviews Lennon hasn’t admitted to any mistakes. He did claim the credit for beating Lazio in November 2019 but made no mention of the 2020 Europa League campaign, his final UEFA matches as Celtic manager.
