The Celtic board have reached out to manager Neil Lennon after his very public meltdown, it has emerged.
Lennon, instrumental in derailing Celtic’s seemingly unstoppable charge towards a 10th successive league title this season, lost his shit during a press conference.
The 49-year-old woke this morning to find a message from chief executive Peter Lawwell in his inbox reading:
‘U OK bbz? Xx’.
Lawwell was checking in on the Celtic boss in the aftermath of a longwinded rant about the media, the Scottish government and the Manitowoc County Sheriff’s Department’s treatment of Steven Avery.
Shortly after the tirade, Lennon announced he was taking a break from Facebook:
‘Deleting this here thing, so I am’, wrote the Lurgan-born manager.
‘Too many people carrying tales back to Andy Walker and Nicola Sturgeon’.
‘If anyone needs me, they can text me’.
The former Hoops midfielder signed off with three snake emojis.
Writing in the comments section underneath Lennon’s post, Peter Lawwell said:
‘PM me chick Xx’.
Former Celtic boss Martin O’Neill added:
‘Just right bbz. Look after you and Scott Brown from now on Xx’.
Discussing the fallout with Paddy Power News, Lawwell told us:
‘Neil’s deleted Insta, Snap, the heap’.
‘He’s absolutely sick of Rangers leading the perfect life on social media when everyone knows the truth’.
‘I told him he should have a clear out and get rid of all the ones telling yarns to Andy Walker’.
‘But Neil says he’s just gonna sit back and laugh coz karma’s a bitch’.
Meanwhile, Rangers legend Ally McCoist has leapt to the defence of Lennon and believes the beleaguered boss deserves more time.
‘Absolutely they should give him more time. A new deal, in fact’.
‘There’s no doubt in my mind, Neil Lennon is the man to help usher in a new period of Rangers dominance’.
