Alan Thompson urges Celtic to sack manager Neil Lennon on Twitter

Neil Lennon is closer to suffering the Celtic sack after failing to beat St. Johnstone on Sunday afternoon – slipping further back in the race for the Scottish Premiership title and ex-Hoops midfielder Alan Thompson has urged the Celtic board to make a change.

Lennon has now won just two of his last 12 league and cup matches as Celtic manager. The 1-1 draw, which could have been a lot worse had Mo Elyounoussi not scored a late equaliser, saw Rangers increase their lead at the top of the table to 13 points.

Not only that, but St. Johnstone had failed to score against Celtic in 11 previous attempts – last netting against the Scottish champions in 2017. However, the Hoops were poor and failed to show any kind of cutting edge or confidence at Parkhead.

Celtic supporters protested outside of Parkhead once again – calling for Lennon’s head. Chris Sutton continually urges the Celtic board to move on, while Thompson has now taken to Twitter, urging Peter Lawwell to sack Lennon.

Thompson discussed Lennon and his relationship with the Celtic boss – before giving a six-word verdict in a second Tweet.

TBR’s view – Lennon has got to be sacked, and if not, resign

It has become unresolvable. Celtic are now so far away from the top of the table that change is required – if they have any chance of saving 10 in a row. Rangers look unstoppable, and Celtic are failing to keep up under Lennon.

The players have not been good enough with some wanting away, and some simply not playing well enough. The board deserve huge criticism for their signings in the summer, all of which have struggled. But the boss always suffers, and Lennon must go.
