Direct quote from Ajer today:

A special mention also to John Kennedy, the most important person for me during my time Celtic. Without him we would never win the quadruple treble.

Most players and managers seem to speak highly of Kennedy yet fans seem to hate him and label him useless. Rodgers actually tried to take him to Leicester with him.
So why is it that so many Celtic fans dislike the man? Could someone please explain?

Some fans are in meltdown about it.

Without him, we would never win the quadruple treble.
Absolute nonsense.

22 Jul 2021 22:16:37
I wonder that myself Lewis.

22 Jul 2021 23:09:39
Good riddance to Ajer. He will certainly not be a miss.

Glad that we have now signed a real Centre Half.

Hail Hail

Well that's a statement and a half and a don't even what to say . honestly don't know what to think after that. makes u think.

23 Jul 2021 07:20:47
Maley, Stein, McNeil, O'Neil, Rogers eh Kennedy?

23 Jul 2021 09:49:17
What's wrong what Ajer said? HH.

There's always that guy who lives the losers.
They must be friends and talking up his mate. Most of us do that. I genuinely can't remember any player manager x player etc say anything nice about Kennedy they also don't say anything bad about him. They don't say anything about him which is worse 🤣🤣.

Well I remember just iver a week ago Andy, Ange said that Kennedy was excellent and has fully embrased the ideas 🤷🏻. So that's yet another professional manager who has actually watched him coach that rates him, whilst some of our fans out of pure blind ignorance think he's poor. Let's not forget Kennedy was here for a while before last season. He's being made some sort of scapegoat and to be quite honest it's wrong.

{Ed007's Note - My main beef with Kennedy is that he didn't change anything when he was temporarily in charge. I backed him because nobody in football has a bad word to say about him as a coach and even though plenty of fans put a lot of the blame on him for last season he was "only" an assistant manager and doing what NL wanted him to do.
When he got the chance to be his own man he just continued picking the same players and using the same formation/tactics that had cost Lennon his job. I'm starting to think that maybe it's something to do with his personality, he won't become any great shakes as a manager but will only ever be a good(top?) coach.

I'd be lying if I said I was impressed by his short managerial stint Ed. In his defence he didn't have the time to try and pick up a side that looked totally void of confidence or ideas. Deep down I knew he wasn't going to be our manager but there's a big difference between a manager and a coach. Like you say, a coach largely bounces off the ideas of a manager.

{Ed007's Note - I think even he knew that he wasn't going to get the job permanently so why not try something a bit different, even to maybe catch another club's eye? He could have started using some of the youngsters, get the players moving the ball a bit quicker, even if the results weren't going our way I think the fans would have backed his ideas and admired him for having the (Manscaped?) balls to shake things up a bit.}

A scripted statement by Celtic Football Club on Ajer’s Instagram.

Fair points Ed. Do you think he'd be after his own gig somewhere at a lower level/ somewhwere with less pressure. I was delighted he didn't follow BR whether it's the club or personal reasons he stayed here I'm glad he did and as long as managers keep opting for him I hope he stays.

Whilst on the manscape is it Cork Paul I need to see about a refund? Mine's no working and I'm sick of beating round the bush! (Cough)

{Ed007's Note - I though it would have been best for all involved if Kennedy had left to take over and be his own man when the Lawwell era ended, that's why I'm starting to wonder if he does actually want to be a manager/head coach?
Paul can send you some slimfast instead...... 😁

23 Jul 2021 14:31:45
Perhaps he doesn't have the intention or knows his limitations. He won't be the first or the last coach in that boat.

23 Jul 2021 15:10:56
Kind of agree with you @JIMTIM
We tried him when Lennon was out same old rubbish I actually genuinely thought it would be different on his own but no exact same. So we all where hoping. But COMPUTER SAID NO 💪. i got sucked in. So maybe we agree he's a gd number 2. Ange must think that as well HH.

23 Jul 2021 18:36:05
Hail Hail Andy. When it comes to coaching we're all just looking from the outside in really. It's the managers ideas he's largely coaching the players and if he's good enough for the manager he's good enough for me.

24 Jul 2021 12:49:31
hail hail @jimtim {fair enough }
for the the game today im looking for improved fitness and ajeti to do his thing,
