It’s been a while since former Celtic boss Neil Lennon piped up about Rangers and given his demoralising exit from Parkhead you’d have thought he’d keep a low profile.

The Celtic legend was hounded out of our Old Firm rivals by his own fans after a torrid run of form coincided with a relentless Rangers putting their foot on the club’s neck.

The Gers astonishingly went the season unbeaten on Lennon’s watch – a quite remarkable feat given where the club has been in recent years.

Lennon spoke a good game – he even laughed a good one – but it’s the Gers and the club’s fans who’re now laughing loudest.

Yet Lennon is back in the press this week doing the rounds and has even had plenty to say about Rangers boss Steven Gerrard, namely, his longevity at Ibrox.

Gerrard stuck at the task at hand and was eventually rewarded and everyone associated with Rangers deserves credit for sticking by him.

It was a pretty remarkable set of circumstances and whilst at times fans teetered, there was no genuine suggestion the club was going to force Stevie G out.

Yet Lennon couldn’t resist sticking the boot in, claiming Gerrard should’ve won more trophies and hinting that he’s lucky to still be in a job.

“I think he’s done a good job, yeah. He’s won the league under a lot of pressure, which we all were,” said Lennon [talkSPORT via Glasgow Times].

“We know in Glasgow that we have to win. Steven maybe hasn’t won as many trophies as he would have liked but he’s done what he has set out to do.

“I think he maybe got a bit longer than some managers would have done. But he’s got Rangers into a good position now.”

Lennon – who said “I don’t know” when asked if Gerrard’s name kept him in a job – naturally drew the sarcastic comments of Rangers fans as a result via Twitter:


Rangers fans have had plenty of fun Living It Up over the last few months and continue to do so when the opportunity strikes.

Only this week where the club’s supporters waving goodbye to yet another Celtic failure whose arrival perhaps defined their transfer strategy last season.
