Lenny slams 'abysmal decisions'

Post  Ryan67 on Sun Jun 13, 2010 9:21 am

Neil Lennon want his Celtic players to question referees after restating his belief that they were hard done by in Old Firm games last season.

The 38-year-old, who was installed as the club's new manager last week, said some of the decisions were "abysmal".

"In the high-profile games, the Rangers games in particular. The club were justified in making a point about it," added Lennon.

"I want to see them (the players)sticking up for each other."

Rangers secured their second successive Scottish Premier League title last season, with Celtic parting company with manager Tony Mowbray before the end of the campaign.

Lennon, who steered the club to eight consecutive league wins before landing the job, believes Celtic failed to get the rub of the green at crucial times.

Marc-Antoine Fortune had a goal chalked off in the Old Firm derby draw in January, and Celtic were unhappy with a number of decisions in both of their derby defeats at Ibrox.

Midfielder Scott Brown was sent off after a clash with Kyle Lafferty in February and the visitors were unsuccessful with a couple of penalty claims in the October meeting.

Celtic were also unsuccessful with an appeal against Brown's dismissal.

"I think some of the decisions we had last season were abysmal," said Celtic.

On his desire to see his players question decisions and support each other on the pitch, said: "I did it myself as a player, not to influence the ref but to let him know we weren't happy.

"Any challenges that were a wee bit heavy, there were two or three of us around the player who did it.

"There was a togetherness and I want to see that again. I want to see them sticking up for each other.

"They did that in the last few games. That's what teams are about - looking after each other on the pitch and having a good spirit off it."

The Celtic manager added: "It's important; it's a basic thing in the game and it's difficult because in the modern game you've got all these different coaches. But we'll try to develop the players and make sure there's an affinity with the club."


Well said Lenny, I want to see the players standing up for each other as well and to see our manager standing up to the huns and the refs unlike that spineless cunt Mowbray.

It will be refreshing to see a bit of fight and solidarity, an example that sticks in my mind is wehn Lafferty assaulted Hinkel at Parkhead, not one player stood up for him when he was lying on the ground writhing in pain. Mowbrays reaction was to put his hands behind his head and flinch like a pussy instead of going mad, none of that next season. Want to see the players smashing into huns left right and centre, win the battle then we play football.

Its also great to see someone speaking out against the corruption, instead of suffering in silence.

Fuck the SFA.

That's the example that came to my mind as well when I think of us being way too soft, Mowbray's reaction was embarassing.

mowbray was a joke on the touchline, no passion at all. the opposite of what he was as a player. i loved watching Lenny on the touchline against the filth, didn't stand still for a second.

Hahaha that is what started that big argument on there last time about 'fans' and 'supporters' etc, if you think that a derby game against those fuckers is 'meaningless' then you're not quite all there imo, no the full shilling. Faced with the fuckers spouting their vile each day and you'll no be calling it 'meaningless'. If you honestly think that any game against them doesn't mean anything then I don't think you really understand what being a Tim is all about.
