'I'll Be Brutally Honest...' - Celtic Exclusive: McAvennie reacts to Green Brigade protest
Frank McAvennie is adamant Neil Lennon “would like to change some of his players” as pressure grows on the Celtic manager’s position.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, the former Hoops and St Mirren striker insisted “something has got to change” at Parkhead if results and performances do not improve quickly.
The Bhoys have won just two of their last eight games in all competitions to leave them 11 points behind Rangers in the title race and on the brink of exiting the Europa League.

“This is a big challenge. The more points they drop the more confidence Rangers will get and the title will run away. I am sorry but the fans will not be happy.
“I am going to be brutally honest with you, it looks as if the players do not share the same desire as the fans this season.
“Individually they are better than Rangers but they are not playing better. They need to roll their sleeves up and get it sorted.
“Everyone needs to get their heads together and sort this out. It is either that or something has got to change.
“I know Lenny would like to change some of his players, that is for sure. Obviously they are not doing it for him.
“When they going gets tough you have to work harder.”
