Hibernian manager Neil Lennon has lost the plot once again after a high-profile defeat – this time threatening to potentially resign after his side lost 2-1 to bitter rivals Hearts – to leave them facing an impossible task to overhaul Rangers and finish third in the Scottish Premiership.
Lennon has hinted that he could walk out on Hibs in the summer – leaving Gers fans in hysterics at the Celtic legend’s latest meltdown.
“I would have been disappointed with a draw, the way we played. It wasn’t enough tonight. We’ll try to win Sunday and finish with as high but I will consider my position over the summer,” said the Hibs boss, as quoted by the Evening Times.
The Hibs boss watched his side lose out to goals by two former Rangers strikers in Kyle Lafferty and Steven Naismith leaving the capital side needing a 6-0 win when the two sides meet at Easter Road on Sunday to climb above the Gers in the league table – and Gers fans were absolutely loving Lennon’s antics.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

One defeat and he’s ready to walk, Pathetic comments for Lennon to make but not surprising always greeting about something https://t.co/IcKvwD44AK

That Lennon is one angry bitter wee man. I blame the Tooth Fairy for ignoring him all those years as a child.

The Gers travel to Edinburgh hoping to get the results needed to lift themselves into second ahead of Aberdeen, who face Celtic at the same time.
Jimmy Nicholl’s side trail the Dons by a single point and have a superior goal difference to the Reds.
A win for Celtic over Derek McInnes’ side would leave the Gers needing only a draw from the clash with Lennon’s side to overtake the Dons and finish in second.
