And So It’s Comes To Pass….. (Taken From The Old Blog)
I wrote this way back in March 2010 and so it’s come to pass that Lennon would be made a figure of hatred by the Scottish media ……
Celtic could pick Mother Teresa and the media would lambast them.
March 27th, 2010 in Celtic FC

So the media clock begins to tick down on Neil Lennon, how long will it be for the Media (Scottish) to begin the process of alienating and discrediting him to the public, they done their best when he was playing for us and there’s no doubt they’ll be back with pencils sharpened to a lethal point in their quest to demonise Lenny.
This is not a case of paranoid Timmy because history proves otherwise in the fact that the last seven Celtic managers have come in for some very obnoxious copy from the purveyors of lies, untruths, half truths, and down right slander.
1997 Win Jansen Who is that with the barnet? And the stream of opinionated rubbish that followed him right up until he stopped the ten-in-a-row.
1998 Jozef Venglos Dr Who? And the same regurgitated rubbish directed at him, despite the mans impeccable football credentials from the highest administrators in the game UEFA.
1999 Poor old John Barnes he didn’t stand a chance, rookie! And that was even before he put out a side.
2000. Dalglish’s Wife makes him take the job, he needs a golf course in his back garden!
Just some of the totally meaningless headlines that greeted the reluctant Scotland great.
Then along came the Irish, Martin O’Neill breezed into paradise like a breath of sweet nectar second division manager. And such ill-informed clap trap that was spewed onto our breakfast tables, stories about Desmond bankrolling his wages and he was a average manager with no tactical nonce ect ect ect . Happily the blessed Martin had a sharp legal mind and even sharper Lawyers and Barristers who quickly and very profitably seen off the media vultures particularly the Daily Record and the obnoxious little git Keevins who made O’Neill a very rich man when confronted with their bile in high courts.
Then we come to Strachan 2005 if ever a man that was able to put down the media with a rasp of his tongue it was him, no matter what they said or try to make him say he always has a put down for them…. they despised him.
2009 Mowbury. If there was anyone that was the opposite to O’Neill and Strachan it was Tony Mowbury the complete honest and open guy who found out the hard way that football is no place for nice guys, almost on a daily basis they hounded and harassed the guy to the point the looked like he was in the process of having a nervous breakdown, just as well his tenure came to a end yesterday or we could be writing something far more serious than the demise of a football managers job.
And so to Lennon. He has first hand experience of what the Scottish media are capable of and he’s nobody’s fool when it come to calling it as he see’s it, hopefully he will use his past experience’s to guide him through what will undoubtedly be a trying time for him and hopefully he will use the same past experiences to treat this bunch of deplorable and narrow minded low life’s with the same contempt they showed him and the Club and the Supporters.
Good Luck Lenny & God Bless
