Neil Lennon admits he is under pressure

Celtic boss Neil Lennon has admitted that he is under pressure but has said that he doesn’t fear the sack. The Hoops currently trail arch rivals Rangers by 10 points in the Scottish Premier League and are struggling in Europe.

Had the Glasgow side lost to Kilmarnock last weekend, Lennon may have been on the way out of the club, but luckily for Lennon, the side staged a second half comeback and drew 3-3.

“I don’t feel under extra pressure” said Lennon. “You have to accept questions will be asked if you are 3-0 down at half-time against any opposition in the SPL.

You have to ask questions of yourself: are you doing the right things? Why is the team not performing?

“I don’t feel as if I am in any trouble as far as my job is concerned. If anything, the pressure comes from within myself and my own pride in the performance of my team.”

“We have to defend better than we did last Saturday, that’s for sure”.
