There comes at time when you take stock and look at a situation objectively. Try to see the world with opened eyes to make an informed opinion/decision when all the facts are laid bare in an orderly and calm fashion. This Celtic fan is so brassed off at the current events at Celtic Park he called Radio 5 Live to make his point and he didn’t pull any punches.
I can’t say for certain if this opinion was formed with a calm head but he certainly didn’t mince his words when it came to what Lennon should do now and questioned how the champions could go from sweeping all before them to a team that is “timid and insipid”.
Chris Sutton tweeted out the call today and the twitter reaction was one of agreement and unity among the Celtic fans:
100%. His legacy is in tatters

Neil should walk. He's a legend at the club and will remain so. Desmond and Lawwell need to be held accountable. We have fallen apart on their watch. Complacency on an extraordinary level, not heeding the threat of a serious challenge from across the City, inexcusable!

The caller is right. To add, there has, under Neil Lennon, been a severe drop in standards and a unbelievable lack of tactical ability and organisation. Players dont know what their role in the team is. He is out of touch with modern football and should go now.

Yes. He's absolutely spot on. No time for sentiment now. From a footballing and business perspective, he should have gone after ferencvaros. Every day he remains, more damage is being done.

Less than a week ago, Sutton himself said he was “baffled” at Celtic’s decision to stick with Lennon but did offer that if Lennon was turn around the points gap at the top of the table and lift the Championship, it would be the Irishman’s “greatest ever achievement” in his twenty years at the club.
It is fair to say that the majority of Celtic fans have seen enough of the insipid displays they have been subjected to in the last few months. Two wins in twelve games is not championship winning form, in fact, you could argue that if it was any other team it would be classed as relegation form.
The passion from that Celtic fan and Celtic twitter is indicative of how many Hoops fans are feeling at the moment and there is no sign that Lennon will get a reprieve from the calls for his head, even if he lifts the Scottish Cup in less than two weeks time.
