It would appear after last night many fans have had enough, and I for one do not blame them.
The last eight years of total dominance, glory and success is on the brink of being forgotten and for nothing, thanks to the arrogance of Peter Lawwell, Dermot Desmond and many others on the board at the club, who decided to feed the Celtic fans news via journalists of despised media outlets, while barring actual fans of the club from conferences.
Keith Jackson was allowed yet another scoop, presumably because of his links to Iain Jamieson, or some other rat inside the club, desperate to be on the side of the Daily Record.

It is a situation that has been coming for a long time, and this thread below is hard to argue with.

Neil Lennon’s second reign at Celtic and the games which have shown us how much we’ve regressed in those 18 months as a football club and why he needs to go now.
(Words on the board and the bigger war at hand for Celtic fans is at the end of this thread).
In response to the disrespect that has been displayed by the club, fans have been encouraged to seek a refund from the ticket office, and rightly so. See below for more details.
Anyone who didn’t take their refund at the end of last season can contact the ticket office and still get it now, in the last week alone we’ve had fan media banned from press conferences, fan forums cancelled and club officials making derisory comments towards the support. pic.twitter.com/3BldIJu4wj— 4 Tims and a Podcast (@PodTims) December 1, 2020
This is not a knee jerk reaction. Celtic have been sailing amidst a sea of unprofessionalism and short-sightedness since the summer.
Dunno if we have missed anything major but Celtic 2020/2021 really has been something else.— GIGPOD ⚪️ (@gigpod) December 1, 2020
Any other team and we’d be (rightly) howling. pic.twitter.com/wllFb3gQfl
I dread to think of how Thursday will go.
Personally, I’d forfeit the game and just focus on St Johnstone, but that’s me. I’m out of touch, with a lack of self awareness and no doubt thinking irrationally.
But then, so are the Celtic board.
