Lennon in no mood to compromise with Rangers

522

Neil Lennon was in no mood to pull his punches on the subject or Rangers alleged tax evasion for a period stretching over a decade at his press conference yesterday.  Asked if winning this season’s SPL by less than Rangers 10 point penalty would devalue the achievement he said, “If we do win it and people want to throw that at me, I will have plenty to say about devalued titles over the years”.

Peter Lawwell strongly rebuffed suggestions that Celtic were in a mood to show solidarity with Rangers should they lose their tax tribunal early this week and Celtic marked the card of Rangers’ political schemer, Alex Salmond, who tried to tell the world how Celtic fans felt about the issue.

While Neil Lennon was keen to focus on tomorrow’s important SPL game against Hibernian, he dealt with questions on Rangers without flintching.  Asked about “financial doping” he said, “doping is a sporting term for cheating”

Adding, “In athletics, if you are caught doping you are banned. Alberto Contador got stripped of his Tour de France win in 2010, so there are precedents.

“It’s all hearsay and hot air at the minute. I don’t want to comment on it until all the results and all the findings are out. But if it has had a direct effect on me in my playing days, I will come out and say something at that time. As it is now, it hasn’t been proved.

“They are in administration for a reason and I am sure you guys will get to the bottom of it. It’s not my business, not our club’s business, but it will be my business if it has affected me as a player, or previous managers, and has denied us titles and trophies in the past.”

Conspiracy theorists who have tried to convince the world that Celtic and Rangers have been involved in some mutual preservation pact in recent years will be forced to reflect on the accuracy and consequences of their confounded allegations.  As always, our club will only prosper with unity.  Persistent attempts to rip it apart will only cause further damage.

  8. St Martin De Porres on

    traynor trying to stir it by paraphrasing Lennon press conference yesterday.

     

     

    Lennon whats titles stripped ( not quite what he said)

     

     

    Also mccoist sounds ill…

  9. fergus slayed the blues on

    For a club that constantly decries DIGNITY whenever they speak ,when is one of them going to show the slightest bit of dignity and say they deserve everything and more that is coming to them .

     

    We are now told that the SPL rules will be changed to allow them a route back in

     

    Dignity my erse

     

    hail hail

  10. i always thought rangers hated us… they are really trying to cling on to us now as if we are dead without each other. pathetic

  11. Is this real life?

     

    Got to be dreaming…

     

    The alarm clock must ring soon.

     

     

    NO?

     

     

    I’m 31 years old and been suppporting our great club as long as my oldest memories.

     

    I always felt hard done by , being born after the greatest and most successful period in Celtic’s history.

     

     

    Somebody’s making it up to me.
