“You aren’t Martin O’Neill” – Furious Celtic fans give Neil Lennon some advice after convincing loss to Rangers

Obviously you can’t expect to win every single game, but there was something deeply unsettling about the manner of Celtic’s performance today.

You can’t always play well but there’s no actual excuse for being outworked, and Steven Gerrard won’t believe how easy it was for his side to win today.

Neil Lennon got it wrong tactically and didn’t change things before it was too late, but there was no movement or desire from anyone on the pitch, so it’s incredibly easy to play against a team who don’t look to get in behind.

A few regular starters were missing so there’s a ready made excuse if you want to go down that road, but the Celtic line up still had players worth millions of pounds out there today.

The stats on the coverage told you all you needed to know with the three centre backs having the most touches and Celtic not getting a meaningful shot on target either, so they will take a pounding for this performance and rightfully so.

It’s becoming clear that Neil Lennon can be out-coached and out-thought by any semi competent manager with similar resources, and the fans are understandably furious after the game:

Neil Lennon has been found out in every single job he’s had after a bright start and it looks like it’s happening again, so it will be interesting to see how he tries to spin the defeat.
