Celtic boss Neil Lennon talks about his team’s situation as fans want him out.

Neil Lennon

says that they don’t need a protest and that no problem would be solved with anger.

“From some sections of the support… it is dangerous rhetoric,”

Lennon said.

“What I will say is we all want the same thing. Those fans want success, the majority of our fans want success. The players and everybody here want the same thing.

“We don’t want any divisions. I understand the frustrations and the players are feeling that as well.

“But we don’t like that kind of language or expression anywhere near the football stadium. It serves no purpose really.

“(The protests are) not what we want, It doesn’t serve any purpose. It certainly doesn’t inspire anyone at the club to achieve great things.

“We all want unity. We have got that certainly from the football side of things and we just want the supporters to get behind the team, especially when they need it.

“That’s what the Celtic fans do. They’ve done that for as long as I’ve been here. When things have got tough they’ve got right behind the team and that’s what we’re looking for.”

The club has been supporting Lennon despite the situation.

“I think it sort of settles everyone down. I know it settles the players down, for sure.

“They are really happy about that, thankfully from my point of view. It’s full steam ahead. We just need to try to get some consistency and wins now.

“For me there’s not an awful lot of work that needs to be done. Just that little bit of confidence. That little bit more of forward thinking, a little bit more freer in expression.

“We’re just feeling a little bit anxious at times on the pitch. I get that. I’ve been there as a player myself.

“But they can play through it and that’s the one thing they have to do – train and play through it.

“(Wednesday) was vibrant and we’re hoping we can go out (on Thursday) and put in a performance against Lille and then take it from there. We’ve some big games to look forward to this month. We’re looking forward to putting a run together and a fresh start in the new year.”
