Former Bolton defender David Wheater has delivered a brutal assessment of Neil Lennon’ time as manager.

In 2014 after winning three titles Lennon decided to resign as to see what options he would have in England.

Three months into the season Dougie Freedman left Bolton by mutual consent, the call went out to Lennon who happily accepted the opportunity offered by the Championship.

Asked what was like, Wheater replied: “I think that he was all right when he first came but he liked a pint.”

Bolton were battling against financial issues but a record of Won 18, Drew 26 and Lost 35 led to the inevitable parting of the ways in March 2016 after a year and a half at the club.

During the summer of 2016 brought in Lennon to replace winning manager Alan Stubbs. That appointment lasted 18 months as well, terminated a month before upped sticks for Leicester City.

It is six months since Lennon resigned from Celtic for a second time, clips like the one above won’t do him any favours as he looks for a return to management in England.
