LEADING CELTIC PODCASTER DESTROYS LENNON’S “NEW BREED” QUOTE IN ONE SINGLE TWEET
I genuinely don’t know what Neil Lennon’s thought process was regarding “that” interview published yesterday. I understand he needs to come out swinging and give his side of the story, I get that, but his complete revisionism of the history of last season is astounding.
Lennon seems to have the opinion that the supporters turned on him because of a home cup defeat against Ross County back in November last year, “That was the first cup defeat in 35/36 games. It was the end of an unbelievable cycle of success and for them to be treated that way was bewildering. They should have been lauded for it rather than abused.
“They were getting pelted with missiles. It was very sad. There was a new breed of supporters that I had nothing in common with and who belie the values of the club.”
Lennon’s “new breed” of supporter attack certainly did not endear him to the fans. Many of them still believe he is a legend at the club despite the calamity of last season. I wonder what they think of him now?
Popular Celtic podcaster Paul John Dykes completely blows his the former Celtic boss’s claim with a single tweet that was precise and to the point, “And an old breed of supporters who you have absolutely nothing in common with.” and the reaction was met with widespread agreement.
Lennon has chosen to forget the team lost out on the Champions League to a mediocre Hungarian side at home, in a one off tie.
But more importantly, in the same month as the cup defeat he had chosen to forget the he led the team to an 8-2 aggregate humping against a Czech team that should be nowhere near Celtic. And a 2-2 draw away to Hibs where two goals in the last 10 mins saved Celtic from further embarrassment.
Lennon’s interview achieved nothing except to alienate himself further from the fans and stain his overall legacy at Celtic Park.
