There’s been a common question among the Celtic fans this season about Neil Lennon – What will it take for him to lose his job?
There have been some awful performances in Europe and domestically, but the performances against Ferencvaros and Rangers do stand out as particular low points.
The back to back defeats to Sparta Prague suggested that Neil Lennon was out of his depth in the Europa League, but losing to Ross County in the cup today suggests he’s purely just out of his depth.

This isn’t just any old loss either. Celtic have won every domestic cup game going back to January 2016 when they also lost to County, so it means their incredible run of Domestic cup success is over.
Lennon has tried to reassure the fans all season with a variety of excuses after bad games but it’s hard to see how he survives this one.
The reaction from the fans has been pretty predictable, but even Chris Sutton has joined in with the fans to suggest that he has to go:
Neil Lennon has been badly let down by his players but he can’t survive this. He’s been a great servant to the club.

Well done to Ross County. A pig-headed refusal to accept reality has got us to this point. No more excuses, no more Xmas adverts, no more spin, no more Zoom calls. Lawwell, Lennon, Kennedy and Strachan out. Can take any players you want as well. You all embarrassed the Hoops.

Enough is enough, time for Lennon and his backroom team to go @CelticFC None of the management team seem to know the problem or have solutions. This is disgraceful, the squad are split, and no one appears to have Leadership qualities. What a difference 6 months makes!

If this was any other manager he would have been sacked weeks ago? Lennon has had his time but its time to go we need someone in to start a fresh and hopefully overcome this shocking stage.

If you actually care about this season – Get Lennon and Lawell out . Only ones that can’t see what’s happening right now. After all our years of dominance we are going out in a whimper. Disgraceful management.
