    I'm just stating facts. He beat Hibs at Easter Road, something Rodgers couldn't do. He's a great manager.
    Sir Alex and Pep are great managers, not 3 wins in 15 bench Gray cant win at Tynecastle Neil Lennon.

    Not many managers have won more trophies than Lennon in Scotland. Literally won at Tynecastle on his first match back at Celtic not too long ago.

    Lets not forget Lennon had us 8th and in freefall. He's taken over the most dominant group of players in decades. This is still Brendan Rodgers Celtic.

    Lot of people claiming Lennon wouldn't go onto doing much after Hibs. On the verge of adding another two trophies to his collection. Hope Celtic spank Hearts in the final and we can secure a minimum of 4th place.

    I donít think Iíve ever seen a Hibs fan have a crush like this on an Old Firm manager.
    All he is doing is steering Brendan Rogersí ship home.
    Every gimmick hungry yob,
    Digging gold from rock and roll
    Grabs the mic to tell us,
    He'll die before he's sold.

    It's no so much a crush, I just have a lot of respect for Lennon as a coach and also as a person. Last summer, my friend had been suffering from severe depression and anxiety, Lennon found out about this through various people and Lennon was insistent on wanting to get in touch with my friend and eventually did, he had a long chat with my friend and invited him to a few games as well as giving him signed shirts and offering him a lot of support and advice, giving my friend major confidence in rebuilding his mental strength. Just from small gestures like this where a lot of people don't see this side to Lennon and also how he has coped with everything him and his family have been through over the years, I find inspirational. When I see a lot of people run him down when he has had a successful career and overall did a great job with Hibs, I find it difficult to not stick up for him.

    I do have a lot of respect for him the way he deals with off field stuff. And for a while I was convinced he was going to be the best manager we have had in my lifetime.
    But he really is just keeping what Brendaís Rogers set up ticking over. And even if he wasnít the financial advantage he enjoys at that odious club makes his job a hell a lot easier than most managers in Scotland.

    I donít think anyoneís (or at least many) ever questioned whether heís a nice guy or not. Folk are critical of the way we were going, thatís about it. Iím not sure Iíd class his job at Hibs as great overall but weíll all have our own opinions on that.

    I still donít think heíll be Celtic manager next season and as someone else said, if he is then itíll be a big step backwards for them.

    I agree he is currently just seeing the season out but from a few Celtic I know they seem to think there will be a massive overhaul in the summer with players leaving and coming on. Lennon will then bring his own style. As I said earlier, time will tell in terms of how he gets on but I wouldn't wish bad on the bloke.

    I think many have actually. At least 10 will have. O'Neil, Stein, Eck, Ferguson, Smith, Strachan? Maley, Struth, Symon, Rogers just some.

    Lennon has only won 5, only one with Rangers as competition and they bust and lost a massive lead didn't they?

    Fair enough, I respect you opinions as much as anyone else's. I've made clear that I thought his achievements in his time at Hibs including promotion, European football and introducing the likes of Porteous, Shaw and Mackie brought great times at the club but there are no right or wrong answers it's a game of opinions.

    Sorry I should have stated that I meant in most recent times. At this current moment through every league in Scotland I think he has won more major trophies than any other manager, maybe I'm wrong.

    Decent bloke who had his own demons but is only just an average manager who lived off one jammy result against Barca, doing what everyone did against them and hitting on the counterattack. His man management is poor and tactically at times naive. Good luck in whatever he does but his time hese has gone and we gave I feel a better head coach in place.
