I don’t know what was said to Neil Lennon after the victory over Dunfermline last week but if it caused him to react I can imagine the tone. The few visits I made to the South Stand during Gordon Strachan’s tenure left an indelible image of life as a Celtic manager.
Whatever Kirk Broadfoot did or did not say to Rangers fans towards the end of their defeat at Kilmarnock yesterday, does anyone seriously think it contained more invective than has been hurled at the player for most of his career?
The self-righteous indignation some football fans exhibit when an employee earning [insert a completely irrelevant figure here]exhibits intolerance to what would get you barred for life from any other workplace in the country is the epitome of hypocrisy.
Garry Kenneth, who is likely to face Celtic at Tannadice on Sunday, today told the world he will not be renewing his contract when it expires at the end of the season, saying, “Dundee United are a feeder club, it has always been like that.” Ouch. Whatever Kenneth thinks of United he should at least respect their fans emotional investment in the club to be a whole lot more careful with his words. Should make for a tense afternoon in the United defence, especially if we can put the big guy under some pressure.
Big game on Wednesday. A win would fire enormous impetus into our season. Whatever the outcome, the game will provide Neil Lennon with a guide on how to play in the hugely important month ahead.
