Celtic fan group The Green Brigade has lashed out at the club unveiling another banner and a publicly released statement following a week-long standoff over the future of manager Neil Lennon and the direction of the club itself.

This is not the first time the Green Brigade have made a statement or put up a banner; when they did so in the middle of November, they faced a backlash – with many not keen on it.

This time, they have had a better response, especially following the defeats against Sparta Prague, Milan and, most importantly, Ross County in the League Cup.

Not all fans think the same, though:

Celtic goes into this weekend’s game well behind their Ibrox rivals in the race for the Scottish title, and although they have two games in hand, a lot of fans clearly feel urgent change is needed.

As a consequence, many are fully behind the Green Brigade’s calls for reform at the club.

The Celtic board is under real pressure.

They may want to keep Lennon in place, but they should not assume that this is a situation that can be turned around.

One more bad result could see the pressure become unbearable.

The Green Brigade are a leading fan group; their opposition could represent a serious problem for the Celtic Park hierarchy.
