‘Announce Lurgan Klopp statue outside of Celtic Park,’ Lenny’s getting the last laugh

‘Announce Lurgan Klopp statue outside of Celtic Park,’ is a Celtic fan’s reaction to a tweet by the club this morning, where Neil Lennon talks to the official Celtic website about yesterday’s 3-1 win over Kilmarnock which resulted in the Champions increasing their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership to an impressive 12 points.

“Our reaction was excellent and in the second half we were outstanding. It was a brilliant performance and a really good day for us,” Lenny said.

“The performance and reaction to going a goal down pleased me most. Our reaction was excellent and we all know how difficult a team Kilmarnock can be to break down. We did that very well and in the second half we were outstanding. It was a brilliant performances and a really good day for us,” Lenny told Tony Connelly on the official Celtic site.

“I’m delighted with them. The quality and desire to get the ball back at times was excellent. I think Kilmarnock are a good side and are a difficult nut to crack but we did that very well today. There was a sense of injustice at losing the goal but a real controlled aggression after that.

“This team are capable of creating good chances. The have good belief in themselves and there was a long way to go in the half when they conceded. I was absolutely thrilled to come in at 2-1 up after the last half hour of that first half.”

And on the day when Callum McGregor was yet again linked again to former manager Brendan Rodgers, Neil Lennon was more concerned about praising the stand-in skipper who yet again had an outstanding game for the Hoops.

“I see him taking on the role of captain, but in that position in midfield? Maybe when he’s the other side of 30,” Lenny said. “He has a lot to offer higher up the pitch. You can see how good a player he is and that’s an understatement. At this level he’s a different class. He’d certainly be a contender for player of the year with the way he’s playing. I thought his performance today was immaculate.”
