Lennon says that he isn’t with the situation but he is confident and has the CEO’s support.


boss has been facing so much criticism and says that he accepts them but he stands firm and wants to do his best for the club.

"Obviously all of us are not happy with the way things are panning out at the minute,"


said on the eve of the game in the Czech capital.

"But there is a calmness about Peter (Lawell - CEO) and the board. There's no panic. We have been over the course and distance many times before.

"I speak to Peter every day. He is very, very supportive, as he is with the players and my backroom team as well."

And about the fans he added:

"It is disappointing but fans are entitled to voice their opinion. Whether I agree with it or not is irrelevant, they have put it out there,

"It's something that I am not really going to engage with. I've got a job to do here and I think I've done it pretty well since I came back in."

"I have sort of reconciled myself with the fact that maybe I am not going to be everyone's cup of tea.

"But it is a great privilege doing this job, the club means a lot to me and it has done for the last 20 years.

"I'm strong, I feel strong, my backroom team are strong and the players will only get better and more consistent as we go along.

"Since I've been back, we've won four trophies in a row, the team's won 11 in a row. We've got a chance of winning 12. We are going through a sticky patch, all teams do and good teams and managers come through that and that's what I firmly believe we'll do.

"So it is as you are, let's get improvement, let's get some wins, let's play the type of football we know we are capable of, which we showed in the last 20 minutes at Easter Road, and we will be absolutely OK."
