Lennon trumps Gerrard

Sharing is caring!

We have seen from a frankly laughable blog across the city that Slippy was due for a wee bit of history today when his team were due to beat Kilmarnock and become the first team to win all their post split matches.

Instead, they lost and handed Celtic a 9 point lead and Neil Lennon a one point improvement from when he took over.

Warbo and Pedro both loved a good mini league, if you took 10 points off, added a caravan and dug and looked at the competition through blue glasses it would reveal that the gap wasn’t as bad as mathematically thought.

But their can be no denying that Neil Lennon under extremely tough circumstances came in and did a job for Celtic, not just holding onto the lead given to him by Rodgers but in the end extending it.

At the same time he defeated Hibernian and Aberdeen and finds himself 90 minutes away from achieving something that may never be done again, a treble treble.

Three consecutive Scottish Cups have never been won, a 6th treble would take us to within one of the world record which is held by a club no longer playing football and the first treble treble not just in Europe, but anywhere on earth is to be played for at Hampden.

If Lenny gets the job next year or not, he has proven himself a better manager than Gerrard, the league title is a marathon not a sprint, once again Slippy finds himself behind in every way.
