Charlie Nicholas doesn’t deserve an article on The Celtic Star, plenty of our sites have fallen into the trap of helping to keep him relevant as a pundit following his sacking from his job at Sky Sports.

Before we have a look at this storm in a soup bowl let’s have a look at the former Celtic, Aberdeen and Arsenal striker heating his soup.

In his column in Daily Express (6 October print edition, page 59), which incidentally is owned by Reach, publishers of our friends at the Daily Record, Nicholas reckons that theRangers have the upper hand after the transfer window closed at midnight. Our own view was that this has been Peter Lawwell’s best transfer window ever with numerous top quality signings and crucially keeping all the top players who we’ll need for this season ahead.

As Manager of the Month Neil Lennon has responded this morning we’ll reluctantly take a look at what this attention seeking clown has had to say.

“Laxalt, for me, isn’t an inspirational signing. I said Celtic would go cheap in their pursuit of a left-back. I knew they wouldn’t spend money on a defender that Neil Lennon has been ever so patient for,” Nicholas write in his Express column. “Albian Ajeti will get him goals but there are still question marks in other areas of the Celtic team.

“(the)Rangers must be looking at it thinking that they got the better of the deals. Celtic were a stronger side last season. The main positive for Lennon is that all his main players are staying, although I am not convinced Olivier Ntcham, Kris Ajer and Tom Rogic are happy.”

Neil Lennon though was having none of it as he put this no-entity of a so-called Celtic man firmly in his place.

“If we had signed Messi and Ronaldo, Charlie still would have found fault with it. He’s been negative about the club for years. 

“Charlie doesn’t think for me, he doesn’t speak for me,” the Celtic manager said, as reported by STV reporter Raman Bhardwaj.
