It is undeniable that Neil Lennon needs to be shown the exit door sooner rather than later. He might be an absolute Celtic legend, but with how the team have performed under him this season, there is no way to justify keeping him as manager any longer.
Many would argue that the board have already left it too late and now there is no chance of salvaging the season. But with how frequently the Hoops are dropping points at the moment, there is a genuine possibility that they could be in the middle of a three way tug-of-war for the second spot.
David Low is the president of the Celtic Trust supporters’ group and was an advisor to Fergus McCann. With the amount of contacts he must have inside the club, it would not be a surprise if he knows more than most journalists.
Regarding the Lennon situation, Low has claimed that the board are choreographing the situation and the club could very well end up with an interim manager, similar to the Rodgers situation:

Celtic should go for a long-term manager instead
The Hoops have been linked with a number of top managers in recent weeks. The Eddie Howe rumours have done the rounds for quite some time now. And the rumour mill has gone into overdrive after news broke out that Rafa Benitez has quit as Dalian Professional manager and is a free agent once again.
There are certainly quite a few good options available right now if the Hoops do decide to make an offer. But the bigger question is, are the club willing to show that kind of ambition?
One thing is clear though, the club cannot continue dropping points like they have throughout this season, for much longer. Doing so could mean missing out on the second spot, which will have massive consequences when it comes to European football next season.
If the results don’t improve quickly, there is no other alternative but to sack Lennon.
