It’s not the end of the world. Hope still remains that the top of the table can become Celtic’s come the end of the year. But Sunday morning’s 3-1 loss to their cross-town rival, Glasgow Rangers, once again raises questions for those who support Celtic.
Coming into this year the Hoops hired Neil Lennon, a former defensive midfielder and fan favorite, to take the post previously vacated by the sacking of Tony Mowbray. The Northern Irishman held the post for the back end of last season’s campaign, posting a spotless record in league competition.
Until now, Lennon completed little of what has been asked of him. SC Braga knocked the Hoops out of the Champions League and FC Utrecht humiliated the club out of the Europa League.
The loss to Gers at Celtic Park on Saturday capitalized all the questions surrounding the young, inexperienced manager. While those questions fade when the team is doing well, they are more apparent than ever when the Hoops fumble.
