The Celtic manager Neil Lennon has said that he will have no worries about stepping down from his post if the fans demand him to do so. The criticism of the Celtic manager has grown in recent weeks after the poor run of form, which has seen them take just one point from the last three home matches. They were surprisingly beaten by Inverness 1-0 during the weekend. Neil Lennon received a barrage of criticism from the Celtic fans near the touchline. After the match, he has said that he would be willing to leave the club the moment fans want him to do so.
He has also called the criticism levelled at him as an acceptable. He has said that fans should not be extremely fickle and should have some patience when it comes to the manager. It was not long ago that Neil Lennon was praised in various quarters for the spectacular away win over Spartak Moscow, while the crowning jewel came in the form of win over Barcelona – widely regarded as the best team in the world – at Celtic Park. However, their league form has suffered in recent weeks. Despite this, they stay top of the table having played one game less than Aberdeen.
“I understand supporters’ frustrations. If they’re not happy with me and want me to go, I’ll go, simple as that. These players are giving everything for the club. They don’t always get it right. I know there’s a lack of consistency in the league. I’ve just had it out with the players. Our play in the final third was poor. The lack of patience shown by some people baffles me at times,” said Neil Lennon after the Inverness defeat. Celtic will be having a game against heart of Midlothian away from home in the next match.
