NEIL LENNON has faced an avalanche of criticism this season with Celtic stumbling through a wretched campaign that promised so much in summer.
However, the blue skies of July have been replaced with snow storms in January as problems pile up on the Hoops manager.
The Irishman was practically snowed under in West Lothian last night during the champions’ latest stutter, the 2-2 stalemate against Livingston where once again they blew a lead. It’s been a recurring theme in a season that could have disastrous consequences for Lennon with calls for his sacking increasing from disgruntled supporters.
As he made clear in CQN earlier today, he has no intention of quitting the Parkhead post and he makes a valid point he has won five successive trophies since he returned in February 2019 following Brendan Rodgers’ swift exit to Leicester City.
But the dark clouds appear to be following him into a new year with the team failing to win any of their four Premiership games while dropping nine out of a possible 12 points.
The manager insists he will weather the storm.
Paradise postponed? Or Paradise lost? Only time will tell.
