I spent the weekend offline away from negativity after Celtic’s latest bout of nonsense, only to check for a few minutes at what’s happening today, and, well.....
BREAKING: Celtic manager Neil Lennon has confirmed that one more player has tested positive for #COVID19, following the club’s training camp in Dubai.— Anthony Joseph (@AnthonyRJoseph) January 18, 2021
Bizarrely, Neil Lennon is saying the entire Dubai idea was his, but it could have been cancelled easily, yet the club greenlit it. Nonetheless, he’s now saying he should be apologising to fans, and not Peter Lawwell, enabling the CEO to get away with more nonsense and painting him as some tragic villain in this piece.
Neil Lennon also says he feels noone else is due an apology from @CelticFC for the Dubai trip except the club's supporters, and that the decision to go was his ; and that it should therefore have been him and not Peter Lawwell who should have apologised— @Kheredine (@Kheredine2018) January 18, 2021
Then the manager is saying there’s some ‘agenda’ against the club, with a strange claim that we are being bullied.
Neil Lennon media conference on Dubai trip - he believes there’s an agenda against Celtic and feels Celtic is being held to a higher standard than others. Doesn’t believe it was morally wrong to go and he believes there’s “bullying” going on but didn’t expand on latter point.— Raman Bhardwaj (@ramanbhardwajTV) January 18, 2021
This press conference is something else. He’s lost the plot.

There’s no Stevie this week on GIGPOD, so Hamish from 67 Hail Hail stepped in with John to discuss ‘what next’ for Celtic, but no one could see that coming today.
