Neil Lennon seemed hurt by the performance yesterday. “Some of [the players]look like their minds are elsewhere at other clubs.
“I don’t know if they have been tapped up, I don’t know where they are mentally, but you can tell by their body language they are not with us at the minute and I’ll have to sort that out.”
“I have pulled them out of places that no-one had heard of and put them in the shop window.
“And I want payback now. That is simply not good enough.”
Those of you of a certain age might have thought that sounded a bit like:
“You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar, when I met you. I picked you out, I shook you up and turned you around, turned you into someone new.”
Of course, that girl from the Human League retorted:
“I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar, that much is true. But even then I knew I’d find a much better place, either with or without you.”
As Human League declared in verse, talent will find its level, but only if it performs. It doesn’t matter where they came from, players who cannot excel in the SPL will drift into relative obscurity on leaving Celtic. There has been no exception to this rule.
