If celtic actually came out and said Look we know its not good enough, we know a massive rebuild is needed, we are planning things right now, Lennon will stay to end of season because we think the market for a new manager will be better at that time, would some fans claim down a bit?

Kev spot on its all about communication and it would remove the sense that supporters were being commodified and treated with contempt.

22 Jan 2021 11:07:38
i think that is what's needed kev to stop this melt down with fans and let's try do something with the rest of the season. once the board came out and says they won't bow to mob pressure i knew lenny would be backed till the end of the season so was only one thing to do get behind him till the season was over.

22 Jan 2021 11:09:29
Good post kev. Lack of communication from the board.

22 Jan 2021 12:11:10
I agree this would be ideal but we also have to remember Lennon himself might not actually be happy with that, he himself could believe that he's the man still to take us forward although we all know he is not.

22 Jan 2021 12:12:08
Personally I don't see the point in it Kev.
If Lennon stays until the end of the season he gets 5 months salary until then and then then gets his payoff which will be a further 12 months as I believe he is on a 12 month rolling contract.
If there is no manager available that the club want or if an overhaul is going to happen behind the scenes between now and end of the season Lennon should still be sacked and an interim manager like Gorson Strachan brought in to steady the ship. there's really no point in delaying the inevitable, dragging it out will not do anyone any good. If Lennon stays in the job he will continue to antagonise fans with stupid comments before and after games, he is egotistical and is clearly kidding himself on that there is anything left to play for this season. I don't see him accepting he's keeping the seat warm for someone new.

{Ed007's Note - Are people forgetting that Gordon Strachan has a job? Do you think he will walk out on Dundee - a job he's describes as a labour of love - just to be Celtic manager for 5 months?}

22 Jan 2021 12:30:04
Ed has Philip Cocu gone to any club yet?

{Ed007's Note - No mate.}

22 Jan 2021 12:43:47
There’s a big possibility the manager Celtic want has already got a job and Celtic can’t get him until the end of the season.
Celtic then have 2 choices until then and that’s announce Lennon will stay until the end of the season before being replaced.
Or Celtic sack Lennon now and bring in an interim manager until a permanent manager is announced.

Sad to say but first thing that passed through my mind was kicking the can down the road.
Second thing was maybe the way to do it though shows lack of faith in Kennedy etc, would NL be getting his notice now to reduce compensation?
Will players try or try less for Lennon thinking he is off? as opposed to a new manager?

{Ed007's Note - There will be no reduction in compensation. Lennon is on a one-year rolling contract, every morning he opens his eyes he has a year left on his deal.
Personally I don't believe for a minute that stalling Lennon's inevitable departure is down to the finances.}

22 Jan 2021 13:07:43
I did actually forget Strachan was at Dundee Ed.

{Ed007's Note - I wasn't having a pop at you, Del but his name comes up all the time as a stop gap. 👍

22 Jan 2021 13:24:22
Ed I have been saying this all along. Whether he walks or is sacked he gets a years money because of the rolling contract.

22 Jan 2021 13:30:15
I didn’t know that Kev.
I thought if Lennon walked then he was breaking his contract agreement and that’s the reason he’s not stepped down this time.

22 Jan 2021 13:30:57
Get where your ciming from kev . but I would pull the trigger now and get someone in. thst woyld give him 6 months to plan ahead assess the squad and get early business done. leave till the end of the season and it'll be the usual scampering about trying to get players.

22 Jan 2021 13:49:11
Mally its been like that since oneill mate. I might be wrong but the only manager that hasn't had that contact since then was Rodgers when he signed his second when he got the second contract.

22 Jan 2021 13:51:12
Buzz its something to do with the fact the contract is rolling. Every day is the first day of a years contract but also the first day of his notice period.

Sorry mally replied to wrong person 😂.

22 Jan 2021 14:39:27
I didn’t realise that either to be honest, I presumed that if they told him now he wouldn’t be getting a new year deal he would just be paid until the end of the season. like Kev mentioned though they could still keep fans in the loop slightly especially as they will be pushing new season ticket sales soon.
