Haven't shared a rumour since my biesla embarrassment but the same guy who told me that ( he's still adamant that happened) phoned me after the auld firm and said a couple of other things. I'm only sharing as one of the things was about Duffy having an toothache and needing 2teeth out. The record confirmed that other day so thought I'd share the rest as he got that correct.

Duffy was unhappy at being asked to play the euro and auldfirm as he was in bad discomfort from toothache.

Bition had asked to leave during summer and was very unhappy he wasn't allowed. He wants to go first opportunity. Supposedly had a Spanish club and club from home who wanted him.

Julian is unhappy with coaching staff and Lennon as Lennon has been trying to get him to play recently but Julian is adamant he has a back problem (club can't find anything wrong) . Julian has been paying for a fitness/ recovery coach at home and is paying for the German trip out his own pocket which he is unhappy about.

He said a few players have took it upon theirselves to get fitness coaches in at home.

I'd take it all with a pinch of salt tbh πŸ‘πŸ».

If any of these rumours are actually true then open revolt in the dressing room will only end one way, the manager is relieved of his post. The bigger issue then is who replaces him, because that will take time and effort to get his methodology and tactics bedded in, by which time any chance of still competing for the title will be gone. I don't know the answer, clear the air meetings etc, but something needs to be done. Maybe as a support we need to accept 10 won't happen, look to next year with a new manager/ head coach and the rebuild starts now. OR the players finally find the mirror, look into it and decide that what they are offering currently is not acceptable from any professional footballer. Time will tell, in the meantime, I continue to support and hope πŸ™.

3 excellent sources
All based on people talking to people
1 ex celtic player still very much involved in game
1 plays a significant role in the SPFL
And the other is a Celtic minded manager

Liam Lennon, I'm not anti NL. he wouldn't be my choice but as Celtic manager he gets my support every waking minute ( not to be confused with my being critical of him after the event, be it line up, subs, in game management and tactics etc)

I'm told that key players wanted to go after 9.too many to mention

Celtic dug in. we did look for replacements but the VOLUME of wantaway players took Celtic and Lennon by surprise

It was a rejection of him, us, and indeed the power brokers

Bit, as a Busoness, we made the business decision to hold and search. and incoming players would dictate who went .

The board where also concerned about losing momentum but overhauling squad to deal with wantaway stars

So essentially, we have top players ( 1st team) with a majority wanting to be elsewhere

This has made Lennon's job incredibly difficult.

Players wanting to go is not a new thing, but the French trio want out, ajer wants out. christie wants out. Bitton wants out.

Added to this we have signed unfit players who probably weren't able to bring the intensity of performance from. the get go.

This means we have new, unfit players being overplayed alongside players that want to actually go . and a huge unused pool who actually want to be here but who aren't deemed ready

This is bad management, but not necessarily just lennon

The nature of the issue means a quick fix is incredibly difficult

The hope is that we can rebalance and go again with promises made and incentives created to reset and push hard for the 10

A new manager ( alone) would resolve the impasse

Neil lennon will be looking on in disbelief.

The players have really really let the fans down here. lennon would have gone further apparently after ferencvaros. but it would have been bad news for the balance sheet

Key players are " doing the bare minimum " to keep up appearances, but the hard work isn't being done and the hunger and togetherness has gone

Neil can't say it
Peter Lawell won't admit it

But it is a real thing apparently

So, in summary, the issue is the volume of players that want to go and for celtic it is, for the most part, those players with a value ( which means they are more difficult to drop )

I was also told that brown wasnt dropped

In fact, he is so disgusted with many 1st team players that he, like lennon, wants us to see the pre madonnas for what they are

And rhats it

Not terribly sexy

But that's the issue apparently in a nutshell

Lennon would play Welsh, Ralston, brown and anyone else is committed, but on this modern age, you can't just go aboot driving 6 players worth 100m in aggregate in to the reserves!

Lubo did call the players who were wanting out before Lenny’s rant after our CL exit.
