Celtic boss Neil Lennon sends furious NINE-WORD message to Hoops mole | Football | Sport


Lennon, who is hoping Celtic can clinch the Scottish league title with a win against Hibernian on Sunday, is angry there is someone working against the club’s interests.

“I’m really not happy. Someone is letting us down,” he said.

Celtic are close to clinching their 50th league title, but will require Rangers to slip up at Hearts on Saturday, if they are to claim it this weekend.

As the league enters the second phase of the season, Celtic hold an 11 point lead over their rivals, with only five games remaining.

However, the Northern Irish coach admitted he is focused on what Celtic are doing and not results elsewhere.

“I’ve not given it too much thought, winning the league early,” Lennon said.

“Two wins will get us over the line, and the league is the priority now.

“We were very good last weekend in the Scottish Cup, so the team is playing well coming into this game.”

Celtic come into their game against Hibs off the back of an eventful 3-0 win over Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup.

The Dons had two men sent off either side of half-time, with Dominic Ball given his marching orders after 36 minutes, followed by Lewis Ferguson in the 67th minute.

The clash also saw Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes being sent to the stands after he made a gesture towards Celtic fans.

The ex-Rangers player said he had been targeted with sectarian abused during the game at Hampden Park.

McInnes and his assistant Tony Docherty have subsequently been charged by the Scottish FA.

“I had let it go the first time but I shouldn’t react and I’ll take my punishment,” McInnes said.

“I was wrong to do so, I should be better than that.”

And Lennon has pleaded with Hoops fans to stop the offensive abuse while admitting he felt sorry McInnes.

“I have certain sympathy for Derek. Sometimes to react is human nature,” Lennon said.

“I believe certain managers are due more respect at times.

“I don’t want to hear it from our fans or elsewhere. We condemn it across the board.”
