A trusted source has reported that Neil Lennon is set to hold talks with the Celtic board after their disastrous result against Ross County.

Heading into yesterday’s Scottish League Cup second round tie against Ross County, Celtic had managed just two wins from their past nine games. But even then, there was a belief that the side was good enough to brush past most Premiership oppositions and would get their season back on track eventually.

That picture appears a lot different though now that we have seen them crash out from the League Cup for the first time in five years. It was also the first time since 1958 that the Hoops lost four straight games at home. Safe to say, this season is quickly falling apart and sacking Lennon seems to be the only solution right now.

And Sky Sports’ Anthony Joseph has confirmed that the club hierarchy are set to hold talks with the manager:

Earlier it was believed that Lennon was going to be given time till the next Glasgow Derby to bring things back on track. But those hopes might have evaporated after their elimination from the League Cup.

At this point of time, it looks pretty clear that things are not going work out under Lennon. That is unfortunate cause he is a Celtic legend and it is a shame that this is how his time at the club will come to an end. But sometimes, you need to take hard decisions and the board’s hand has been forced after the club’s terrible run of form over the past 10 games.

Let’s just hope that if or when Lennon is shown the exit door happens, the board bring in a manager who is capable of turning the season around and securing 10IAR for the club. Because failing to do so would be disastrous and unforgivable in the eyes of the fans.
