Celtic pundit Kevin Graham has recently given his opinion about whether Neil Lennon can resign from his post at the club or not.
Graham was a guest on the latest episode of the ‘A Celtic State of Mind’ podcast and the panel discussed multiple issues involving the Bhoys. One topic of discussion was Neil Lennon and whether he can resign from the club or not. Graham believes that the manager will not resign willingly as he still feels that he can turn things around.
Following Celtic’s 2-0 loss to Ross County in the League Cup last weekend, fans had protested against Lennon outside Parkhead. The club’s board had held a meeting with Lennon about his future and the result was a positive one and it was stated that the hierarchy is still backing the manager.
Is there a possibility of Neil Lennon resigning?
Graham feels that if Lennon will leave, there may have to be a mutual agreement between the manager and the club.
He said: “Of course not, he’s not going to walk away. He’s not going to leave, he’s already made that quite clear. He believes he is the man to turn it around. He believes he should get a chance to turn it around and in some ways, that is utterly admirable from him that he’s still got that belief. It maybe means that the dressing room is still behind him.
“He’s not going to walk away, he is not going to resign. I think he’s made that very very clear. If he’s going to leave, there’s going to be some agreement.”
TIF Thoughts on Graham’s comments regarding Lennon’s potential resignation…
Following the protests earlier, Lennon had refused to quit as the Celtic manager. Even before, the manager has made it clear that he won’t walk away from the job and he retains the support of the club.
So it is pretty clear that Lennon is here to stay and unless results don’t down hilll even further, fans should expect him in the dugout atleast for the St. Johnstone game.
