Neil Lennon and Oli Burke

Recommended Posts

Hampden Demolition

Seems Lennons ‘Mr Nice Guy’ image in the media is being questioned yet again...

 

CELTIC have responded to claims from West Browmich Albion's technical director Luke Dowling that Oli Burke was mistreated by Neil Lennon last season.

Dowling felt that Burke was given a short shrift by Lennon and said that the English Championship club had no intention if sending the forward back to Parkhead.

Dowling said: "He won’t be going anywhere near Celtic with the current manager.

"We sent Olly to Celtic in good faith with Brendan Rodgers and Lee Congerton, there were some really good people up there that wanted to take Olly and wanted to play him.

 

“Once Brendan left to go to Leicester the treatment he got from the manager that’s in place now is something we don’t expect for one of our players.

HeraldScotland:

“He won’t be going anywhere near Celtic FC. We currently have a new manager that’s excited to start working and looking at Olly.”

Celtic have denied any wrongdoing, and released a statement on the club's website.

The statement read: "These comments, which question the professionalism of both Neil and Celtic Football Club, are ridiculous and completely inaccurate. West Brom have made no contact whatsoever with either Neil or the club in relation to Oliver.

"As with every player who comes to Celtic, Oliver received the very best of treatment and every support and opportunity. We wish Oliver the very best for the future."

Celtic statement is typical of their victim mentality. 

 

Lennon is a scumbag he will be found out this season and hounded out.

He's a degenerate scumbag simpleton.

New manager just chose to not to play him. 

 

Maybe just trying to boost Burke. But Lennon's time at Hibs is the proof he is a bellend.

I was going to post the same thing re their victim mentality response!! 

 

Lennon is definitely a step back for them manager wise. Celtic know that as well, hence why the 12 month contract. A poor start and/or failure to qualify for champs league group changes will result in him getting emptied. He wont last the season.

But he did play him. He started 8 out of Lennons 14 games in charge which suggests this isn’t down to the amount of game time he had and more likely something which Lennon has said to him.

I would always say in these sort of things that saying nothing is better. 

 

Burke is hardly highly thought of. But Celtic do seem to be in full 'reputation protection' mode.

That Celtic statement. :wtfvlad:

 

Why would West Brom contact Celtic regarding this? Burke is their player, and not getting him back is Celtic's loss. Idiots.

I see Rogic has been given the cold shoulder as well by Lennon. 

 

He’s going to make a dugs dinner of Celtics 10 in a row.

Wee Lenny doing a wonderful job of disrupting the squad harmony, and causing division. Fantastic stuff.

 

Must be a lot of racists in the Celtic dressing room. He’s so unfortunate to keep encountering racism everywhere he goes. If I didn’t know better I’d would think it’s actually all in his head.

Definitely, he wasn’t that great last season against though so long may that continue. Lennon wants to play with two strikers so he might be on his way, to Leicester perhaps?

You get the impression that Lennon is a dinosaur that works on the basis if you treat your players like a bully they will perform for you through fear of failure.

Although Lennon is a dick,  this is typical of modern day footballers imo. 

 

What did Lennon do? 

 

Not play him as much? 

Shout at the delicate wee flower? 

Swear? 

Smile at him... ?

 

Lennon is a twat but Ffs, Unless Lennon assualted him ( I'd fancy Burke in that face off tbh) then grow the **** up. 

 

Smacks a little bit of a footballer thinking  he was gonna play every game and piss the league as he thought he was a level above, but when dropped and questioned he's taken the huff.

This is how I see it. West Brom in the huff because he hasnt played every game. I dont really rate Burke, by all accounts Celtic fans didnt think much of him either. 

 

But, doesn't change the fact that Lennon is a walloper of the highest order.

On the back of the stories out of Hibs re Lennon, this is maybe a wee bit of a concern for wee Neil and his employers.

You'd need to ask the Brummies... or the Hibs players of last season... or Levein... or McCoist... or Allan Thompson... or Shearer... or Gerrard... or Stokes... or Keane... or Dempster... or the woman he threatened with a knife... or the people he has accused of racism and sectarianism because they recognise that he is a ****ing ramjet.

 

Or maybe he is just really unlucky, and it is always everyone else's fault?

Lennon's a clown. 

 

It's all there for someone to nip in and stop 9iar. A club which goes that extra mile recruitment wise by signing 2/3 high quality (relatively speaking) players could do it, imo.

I'm not a Lennon fan and from the reports in general he Comes  across a bit of a dick. 

He also has been treated poorly from fans up here but also imo he brings some of it on himself by being a classless wee prick who enjoys the limelight and controversy too much to remove himself from it. 

 

In regards to this thread and article I can't help but  think it's a bit sour grapes from Burke and West brom in general. 

 

Not seeing anything tangible that Lennon has done wrong. 

 

Burke is a grown man and a footballer, if Lennon has dropped him/ swore at him/ told him he wasn't part of his plans or the likes  then I think he should grow a pair. 

 

If he's threatened him with a knife or attacked him then fair doos, but I'm not getting that from the article.

Celtic seem to be constantly shooting themselves in the foot despite being in their best financial and football position in ages. The Lennon appointment was such a backwards step. All very weird. It's like they're handing Rangers a free hit to challenge them.

Tierney should look at Burke (and Gauld) and see how being talked up and over-valued at a very young age doesn't mean you've made it until you've done the business at a genuinely top team, like Robertson.

Bit harsh, playing at celtic is a decent level. 

 

Gauld couldn't get in the hibs team and Burke started well but stalled. 

 

Not every player will get to Robertsons level, doesn't mean you're not successful or not made it tho. 

 

If Robertson is the standard  we hold every Scottish player to, not many will be successful. 

He's the exception rather than the rule imo.

He could be the rule though. He got there partly through attitude. I get a definite whiff of "I've made it" from Tierney in particular. The comparison with Burke is more the 15m price tag and headlines at a very young age.

Hopefully the rule in the future, realistically he's the exception atm. 

 

They have made it as well, any pro player making a living has made it imo. 

 

Just not as good as Robertson. 

 

Tierney if he has sense will go to Arsenal.

I think Lennon is just a horrible wee ***** to be honest, and because of this, he falls out with people. He lacks professionalism, and falls out with everyone he meets on a long enough timeline. I would suggest that is what has happened with Burke. For all his faults Rodgers was a proper modern day football club manager. Lennon is a wee sabre-rattling jakey, and I suspect Burke and West Brom were not comfortable with his potential impact on Burke's fledgling career.

I agree, but in regards to "potential impact" on Burkes career, he needs to man up imo if the problem is that Lennon was a bit of a dick and said bad words. 

There are horrible people in life and in football, you move on. 

He's not 16 Ffs, he's 22.

If he's that affected by the likes of this he's already peaked. 

 

Anyway - **** celtic, Lennon and for that matter West brom too. 

 

Hopefully the Lennon meltdown is in full flow already, hopefully we can get gain from it if we get our act together.
