Pundit Exclusive: Lennon may be 'one match away from Celtic sack'

Celtic manager Neil Lennon is “one loss away from getting the sack”, according to Gabriel Agbonlahor.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley, the former Aston Villa and England striker insisted it’s a “matter of time” before the Northern Irishman leaves Parkhead.

The Hoops have won just two of their last eight games across all competitions and have shipped 17 goals in that time.

They only salvaged a point against Hibs on Saturday with a 90th-minute equaliser from loanee Diego Laxalt.

The Bhoys are now 11 points behind their Glasgow rivals Rangers at the top of the Scottish Premiership table but they have two games in hand.

The Glasgow Times report Lennon will not walk away from the club and retains the full support of the board.

However, Agbonlahor has claimed Celtic and its supporters are close to running out of patience.

He told Football Insider“A club like Celtic do not hang about when the managers are struggling.

“I think he’s probably one loss away from getting the Celtic sack.

“There are a number of managers that can take that job and would love that job at Celtic.

“The squad of players have got they should be performing better than they are.

“It’s just a matter of time before Neil Lennon gets the sack because Celtic fans are not happy at the moment.”

Celtic now travel to Sparta Prague in the Europa League on Thursday night, having lost the reverse fixture 4-1 at Parkhead at the beginning of November.

On Sunday they host fellow Scottish Premiership side Ross County in the second round of the Scottish League Cup.
