'He gets a 2-year deal' - Pundit reacts to two huge Celtic manager developments
Danny Mills has backed Celtic manager Neil Lennon to turn the club’s fortunes around and suggested recent results are down to individual errors.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley, the former Leeds United full-back pointed to the example of Pep Guardiola and Manchester City of a club not panicking despite their poor start to the season.
This site revealed earlier this week the Hoops have no plans to sack Lennon before the next Old Firm derby in January as there are no credible alternatives.
Celtic are currently 11 points behind their Glasgow rivals in the Scottish Premiership although they have two games in hand.
They exited the Europa League on Thursday night after their 4-1 defeat to Sparta Prague but Mills has claimed perspective is needed.
He told Football Insider: “The way Celtic have performed over the last nine seasons has been sensational so the pressure to keep doing that, the pressure to get 10 in a row is right up there.

“There’s no reason why Celtic cannot go on a run and I’m sure Neil Lennon is working very, very hard to turn it around. I back him.
“He’s very experienced from what he’s been through as a player, as a coach.
“Man City are having a tough time at the moment, they’re not where they want to be but do you sack Guardiola? No, he gets a new two-year deal.
“You have to look at the big picture, injury, form, covid. All these things that are little issues come together to create one big issue.
“You have to start looking at performances and results and analyse what is wrong. Is it Neil Lennon and his ability to pick a team or is it individual errors? Sometimes it’s too easy to look at results, you have to look a lot deeper into it.”
