There’s nothing wrong with constructive criticism. Nothing at all. And Managers should be able to take it and they should be able to answer it. Lennon’s quoted in BBC Sport like this,

Lennon was barracked by some Celtic supporters near the dug-out during the match.
“I understand supporters’ frustrations,” he said. “If they’re not happy with me and want me to go, I’ll go, simple as that.”
The Celtic manager described his side’s recent home form as “unacceptable” but said he was vexed by some of the criticism.
“The lack of patience shown by some people baffles me at times,” he added.

Obviously, in the heat of the moment, both fans and Lennon can say things that can seem beyond robust, but given a few hours to cool down, I think we can all appreciate the the magnitude of Lennon’s job at the moment. He’s a victim of his and the team’s own success. Ironically, if Celtic were out on our arse, by now, in Europe, there wouldn’t be as much passion and expectation from us fans and we would probably have taken defeat by Inverness CT on the chin. Let’s not forget, we are still top of the League and if anyone thought that results like this would go away with Rangers, they are deluding themselves. Other teams are going to step up to the plate and give everything they have against Celtic. They only have to raise their games 3 or 4 times a year now instead of 6 or 8. Every game Celtic play, we are going to have to just live with that fact and simply overcome it. That’s what we are doing. What we must not do is spit the dummy out and shout abuse at Lennon when he is clearly feeling it too. I should also add that I believe he does understand that fans are frustrated at these times — it’s what sport’s all about after all — but he shouldn’t take it personal when, in the heat of the moment, fans give him verbal. He should leave the ultimatums out. He knows fans don’t want him to go. It’s bad for the team and supporters’ morale if people take things personally and ultimatums like the one quoted are given.

It’s in all our interests to continue to back the whole team, Lennon and all, and drive on for unprecedented success. Some fans might argue that the backing the fans have given him in the past is proof enough that they back him but it was hardly difficult to do, given the circumstances. Let’s just put it behind us and move on. Like adults.

With the match against Hearts now about to kick off in under an hour, I’m feeling confident we will take this opportunity to quickly put our recent SPL form to bed and get back to winning ways…

I’m not against the Not Proven Verdict despite the bad press it has had through the ages. That is only because the media manipulates what verdicts are newsworthy so we only here about the really bad ones. The “get out” option for the jury so they don’t have to decide. But on this occasion there was no decision to make. He is guilty. He’s on telly assaulting him. The jury can opt to remove the racist element. But they didn’t want to because they wanted John Wilson to get off with it. To them he’s a hero because they were an Anti-Irish jury. I challenge any of them to prove me wrong. As for Brother Wilson, he admitted the crime. But he said he didn’t swear or call Lennon a “Fenian”. That leaves the question, what did he say? “Hello Mr Lennon would you mind terribly if I attacked you?” Did big nasty Neil refuse to sign his dick with his autograph? Or worse still, did a hearts security man lie under oath in court and say he heard one of his own call Lennon a “Fenian Bastard”. Very unlikely. The following is nearer the truth.

Hearts FC Racist Attempts to attack Neil Lennon

Hearts Racist Attacks Irish Neil Lennon

This just shows that Scotland is racist to the core. The 80% so-called Protestant population in Scotland has shown that it is still Anti-Irish racist, not just institutionalised at an establishment level, but from the grass-roots all the way up. A horrible septic boil that needs lanced, lanced desperately. Because after the attacks on Celtic supporters and Neil Lennon and his family last season, it shows Scotland up as anti-Irish as it always has been. If nothing gets done then Scotland can stay British as far as I’m concerned and I’m off to anywhere but this racist hole. That will no doubt please the east coast Anti-Irish Racists but this country will be on a slippery slope to times worse than the Thatcher years. You will have nothing. Nothing but Gerry “Irish Tosh” McNee and Celtic Football and Athletic Club and possibly Hibs will be your only saving grace. Yet you, most of you, are hell-bent on driving them out. Shame on you Edinburgh, you have finally put paid to the myth that Anti-Irish Racism is a west coast problem.
