    Imagine wanting our manager to be 100% committed to the club and are quite uneasy with his unhealthy links to his former club to the determent of ours.

    If this was a hearts manager away to a huns function or Craig Levein to a Harry Potter book convention we would be laughing our nuts off.
    do you seriously think heading away for half a day(if that) is going to disrupt things that much?

    Does this send a worse message to the players than seeing pictures of your manager hanging about the bookies in his spare time?

    I realise there are some players who would probably ask for a tip.....

    It doesn't set the correct tone that a celtic tribute night is more important than spending 5 days away with his squad. It should have been cancelled. It wasn't, hey ho.

    nice deflection! i think if you are being honest you will agree that it probably had no impact on the players or training(if they were training).

    I never once said it disrupted stuff so there's no deflection. Regarding training, no, he doesn't take most the training anyway.

    About being there as the manager of the club and leaving half way through for a night with his old club, that doesn't send the correct message out.

    Was any actual message given to the squad? And how do they feel about it?

    Chill out mate. You keep repeating yourself and it’s now becoming obsessive. You’ve made your point about our manager travelling back to Scotland for a few hours albeit you just can’t stop yourself falsely calling the ‘legends of SCOTTISH FOOTBALL ‘ event a Celtic gig. It clearly wasn’t so you detract from your concerns by repeating this ‘untruth’. However we do get you’re upset he returned to speak at this event.

    I can see the OP's point but this is a bit of a mountain out of a molehill situation no?

    thought it was only the huns and the diet variety that got so wound up about Celtc.
    Makes you wonder.

    Sure the manager trusts his backroom staff. He's done a good job so far so im not going to lose any sleep over this. Unfortunately he's a Celtic legend. Hopefully he becomes a Hibs one.

    Do people seriously think the players want to spend 5 days and nights in Portugal "bonding" with their manager?

    Or think that's what they'd be doing? No chance.

    The management team will withdraw from the players when the work's done and allow them to "bond" which is far more important. If the management were there all the time, that wouldn't happen to the same extent.

    There may be an occasional set piece social event during the week, but not 24/7 "bonding" between Lennon and the team.

    It would be a huge mistake for Lennon etc to be in the pockets of the squad all week.

    So, Lennon's attendance at a Legends of Scotland event will have lost Hibs nothing.

    The correct tone would've been one with a capital T surely?

    Neil Lennon is doing a great job as Hibernian Manager and im pretty sure Gary Parker is more than capable of dealing with matters. Alex ferguson once sat out a manchester united game...

    I heard a rumour that he's on next year's Celebrity Big Brother.

    Some folk are going to lose it on here when they watch him waking up in his Hoopy the Huddlehound Jim jams.

    I was quite happy for the winter break but if 7 pages on this are the result I hope it's not back next season!

    Are folk genuinely upset by this 😂? Utter nonsense. Neil Lennon's job is a football manager. Every decision he makes is done with his job in mind. If he felt that returning to an event for one night would impact how he performed in his job then he wouldn't have gone. Seems to me like he trusts his assistants to do exactly what they are employed to do. I'm confused as to why some of our supporters don't share this view.

    Can anyone advise whether he was back to view the entire game against the Dutch side?

    I’ve looked for confirmation from on eye witness that he was, but can’t find it, other than comments that he was stuck in traffic.

    So, simple yes/no question.

    Common sense view of the situation.

    Unfortunately common sense seems to have gone out the window with that element of our support who have a particular agenda.

    He was there when Gray went off injured and that was after something like 5-10 minutes I think? So I’m assuming he was there from the start. Looks like his wee trip to this function really didn’t have an impact at all.

    My take exactly. Too much hyped indignation over the root of sod all. Grays injury is the biggest concern but apart from that don't see a lot to moan about. We should have more points but if we said we would be sitting now in fourth then I'm sure we would have been well pleased. Let's just concentrate on the next game. Not having any games to talk about let's a few imaginations run wild.

    I just looked on the Legends of Football twitter site and the event was organised at least as early as July 17. The site is very Celtc orientated considering its title. The training camp was obviously organised with this knowledge so everyone would have been aware of the plans. I still don't think it is ideal a manager leaving half way through a working week but am far more concerned that our captain is out possibly for the season.

    We'd have won that yesterday if Lennon had stayed out the way.
