NEIL LENNON has issued a rallying cry to his team saying that they will work through this current tough patch and get back on track as they chase 10IAR. Injuries, COVID-19 and other tactical issues have meant that Celtic sit three points behind Rangers, who kick off at 3pm at home to Livingston. However, Lennon isn’t worried that the next time that his side play in the league they could be 9 points behind.
Speaking after the game to Sky Sports, Lennon said that a few players were short on confidence but that he would manage them through this tricky spell.

The manager wants to solve the defensive worries after eight goals have been shipped in three games. The Irishman is looking forward to Jullien, Bitton and Elhamed returning so he can strengthen his backline.
Lennon has faced calls to leave the club after a poor start to the season but the manager says that he is ignoring the noise, instead focusing on what he can achieve with the Scottish Champions.
The manager has won 5 titles as Celtic manager and has been a great ambassador for the club. This start to the season has been poor and he will be the first to admit it. There needs to be changes but whether that is in the managerial position remains to be seen.
