Trevor Sinclair said on talkSPORT (9:23am, November 6, 2020) that the signs are there that Neil Lennon has lost the Celtic dressing room.
The former West Ham United and Manchester City winger, who is a Celtic fan, made the comments following the Hoops’ defeat to Sparta Prague at Celtic Park in the Europa League on Thursday evening.
The Scottish Premiership giants suffered a heavy 4-1 loss at home in Group H and are now in danger of not progressing to the knockout rounds of the Europa League.
“I was looking at Edouard and his body language wasn’t great. Then you look at the discipline problems. Mohamed Elyounoussi, texting on his phone after being substituted.
“Neil Lennon was asked about that, he didn’t say too much about it but you could tell he was fuming. He’s got a problem with the players at the moment.
“It seems like he’s struggling to inspire them and I’m not sure, I’d like to think he’s not lost the dressing room but the signs are there. It’s sad to say but the signs are there that he may not be inspiring the players.”
Celtic do have a good squad, but things have not been great for Lennon’s side so far this season.
The Glasgow giants are struggling both in the Scottish Premiership and in the Europa League, and the players need to step up.
The Bhoys are second in the league table at the moment with 26 points from 11 matches, nine points behind leaders and bitter Old Firm rivals Rangers, who have played 13 games.
Celtic will return to action on Sunday when they take on Motherwell away from home in the Scottish Premiership.
