Celtic manager Neil Lennon is under serious pressure to produce results for the Scottish champions as the club fans grow tired of their team's poor run both at home and abroad. The Scottish football giants have failed to win any of their last five games in all and this run has heaped misery on Neil Lennon who was in charge when Celtic won the league title last season ahead of Rangers. He is in his second spell as a Celtic manager after his four-year stay at the club in his first spell.

Neil Lennon was at the club from 2010 to 2014. Neil Lennon was appointed as the Celtic manager for the second time in 2019 as a replacement for Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers who walked out on the club to join the Foxes midway through the 2018/19 campaign. He had previously been a player at the club long before his managerial career started. Neil Lennon spent seven years as a Celtic player between 2000 and 2007.

Celtic have not won any of their last five games since the 4-1 win over hosts Hibernian at the start of last month in what was a matchday15 clash in the Scottish Premiership. The run saw them lose two Europa League matches to condemn the club to finish as the bottom team in Group H ahead of their final group game at home to unbeaten French club Lille later this week.In addition to the two Europa League losses, Celtic were beaten 2-0 at home by Ross County in the Scottish League Cup as they crashed out of the competition by virtue of the defeat plus two league draws in the current poor run. In the league, the holders trail leaders Rangers by 13 points having played two games more than their Old Firm rivals.
Celtic have already backed Neil Lennon amidst the present slump in form but the Northern Irishman knows that results must improve starting with Thursday’s Europa League game at home to Lille if he wants to keep his job.
