With the weekend almost upon us and Celtic just about to face their first opponent after ex manager, Neil Lennon, resigned. There is a sense of bewilderment amongst the Hoops fans about the desicion to appoint John Kennedy the interim boss until the end of the season. Many see Kennedy, unfairly in my opinion, as part of the problem as to why the league was so meekly given up.
Many also still hold the opinion that Kennedy is to blame for the amount of defensive errors as they continually, and wrongly, believe that he is the defence coach at the club. That point has long been explained by many bloggers, including myself, that he has never been the defence coach. He is simply part of the coaching staff as the Assistant Manager and no matter what his opinion is on the set up of the team, ultimately, he must do what the manager thinks is best.
John Kennedy for next Celtic manager?
Speaking on Open Goal, ex Celtic striker, Frank McAvennie, couldn’t hide his exasperation at the current predicament his old club find themselves in and ranted, “When he (Lennon) won the league, then he should have then demanded that he brings in his own stuff. And that’s a massive problem. Everywhere in football, it’s because a team come in. Steven Gerrard’s got Gary McAllister. What a coach by all accounts.
“Nothing has changed. John Kennedy is there now until the end of the season and he is favourite to get the job. Unbelievable! And no disrespect to John, you need to go away and learn your trade. Don’t learn it at Celtic and I know Lenny done it, but you need to go away and make mistakes.”
