Lots of Celtic fans have been fuming at John Kennedy after a tweet involving him emerged on social media.
The Celtic assistant boss Kennedy was recently talking about the club’s 1-0 win over Aberdeen. Neil Lennon’s assistant described it as a ‘good’ win and they had control of things early on and also created some good chances for themselves. He also felt that the Hoops became a bit ‘ragged’ in the second half and lost control of the tie.
Do you want John Kennedy gone?
He believes that the Hoops were ‘careless’ in the build-up phases in the second half and lost the ball too much. A tweet about these comments was relayed on Twitter by the official Celtic Twitter account.
Multiple Hoops supporters made their views clear about Kennedy, who had also jokingly insisted the under-fire Lennon fancied a ‘night off‘ as he took over post-match media duties – which didn’t go down all too well with some fans.
What did Celtic fans make of John Kennedy?
“Big part of the issues at CP… get him out.”
“This guy needs to go u can’t bring managers in and force them to work with him he either need to work with the boys again or go and work somewhere else.”
“We think you should resign Kennedy and take the tactical genius that is Lennon with you. Fresh blood needed if you want my season tickets renewed.“
“So Kennedy can crack a joke saying Neil’s having a night off, well the only jokes here are you and that arrogant clown Lennon do the decent thing the pair of you and walk away“
While Kennedy is currently the club’s assistant manager, he has previously been the manager of their Under-19s side too. He has previously donned the role of being Celtic’s Under-20s assistant manager and a first-team scout (as per Transfermarkt).
Against Aberdeen, Celtic took 12 shots on goal. The opposition hit the woodwork once and they also registered ten shots on goal, which suggests that Celtic weren’t exceptional (as per WhoScored).
“He has had his meal ticket. He needs ran out of town with Lennon and Strachan.“
“Kennedy out immediately.”
“If you give John Kennedy the job…I am gone.”
“Fun fact … JK is an abbreviation of joke”
A lot of these Celtic fans want Kennedy gone from the club and they want Lennon gone along with him too.
While it is easy to understand their frustration considering that the Hoops are 15 points away from the top of the table, Kennedy has a lot of history with Celtic. He was at Parkhead as a player and has already taken up multiple roles in the coaching and scouting department (as per Transfermarkt).
