Lennon

said:

“You can’t go on a public platform and spread lies and insults about my professionalism, my players’ professionalism.

“About 70-80 per cent of the group are teetotal and you know the inference and innuendo that he is making. It is not a stag do, it isn’t an ’18-30′ even though it has been portrayed like that.

“I want Andy to apologise because he was demanding apologies from the club.

“I want an apology from Andy because he has questioned my professional integrity, my players’ professional integrity and the use of the word jolly is crass and arrogant.

“He accused the club of being arrogant last week. We weren’t.

“Andy’s been in the game here for 20,30 years, he has made no contribution to Celtic whatsoever.

“He stood up there as if he is a Celtic legend and a stalwart of the club, putting the boot into me, the club and everybody else. He is totally out of order.”
