Fans of Celtic have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relayed a statement made by Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell, backing Neil Lennon.

In his statement on the club’s website, which was relayed by the official Celtic Twitter account, Lawwell commented on the club’s ‘determination to succeed this season’, as well as stating his hope that the Bhoys can ‘move forward together’.

The chief executive said that Neil Lennon, his staff and the players ‘have never been more determined to succeed’, and while acknowledging that Celtic ‘must improve’ on the pitch and that there is ‘a long way to go’, reiterated his call for the club and supporters to be united in their efforts to improve their fortunes.

All in all, it would appear that these Celtic fans are furious at Lawwell’s backing of Lennon, with many stating their belief that Celtic’s season is already over, while others took aim at the board directly for the club’s failures on the pitch.
