The Celtic manager Neil Lennon has said that he has reacted to the abuse from fans previously, but has also said that it is extremely tough to please fans. The Celtic manager was speaking on the occasion of the abuse he received from the Celtic supporters following the 1-0 defeat against Inverness.

Even though Celtic have accomplished a lot in the season – including the win over Barcelona at Celtic Park, fans have been extremely vocal in showing their displeasure for the manager. Neil Lennon is no stranger when it comes to reacting to the abuse from fans, as he did through a bottle to the fans when he was a player.

This time around, he has threatened that he will have no second thoughts about resigning from his position as the Celtic manager if fans demand. Celtic may be close to qualifying for the last 16 stage of the Champions League as a result of the great start they made to the campaign, but they remain just one point above the second placed team in the Scottish Premier league. Celtic fans feel that they should have a significant advantage, which has always been the case during the time when Rangers were playing in this division.

“I remember throwing a bottle – not at a guy but in the general direction of a guy who was moaning at us. We were 19 points clear in the league under Gordon Strachan and we’d just lost against Rangers to an Ugo Ehiogu goal. We were only 16 points clear then! Sometimes you can’t please them all. There is never a middle ground in Scotland. Maybe there should be sometimes. I said some things after the game but I am tucked into the job now and I want to see it through," said Neil Lennon.
