Match Day and things are far from perfect at Celtic Park ahead of the visit of Hamilton. Uncomfortable press conferences, Cashing in on Jeremie Frimpong, who wanted away according to Neil Lennon and a Celtic fanbase who remains in the dark about a plan B at the club to stop the slump.
Neil Lennon’s and David Turnbull faced the media yesterday and it was an uncomfortable watch. David Turnbull looked nervous when asked about Neil Lennon and training in general. Turnbull has been a bright spark at dark times over the past number of weeks but looks very uncomfortable in front of the camera. I am sure like us he expected this season to be a lot different hopefully he continues his talking tonight on the pitch because we need a lift and 3 points to bring a little bit of confidence back to the team.
Not being in the stadium is hard on us all and watching the last few games from home has been even harder. Neil Lennon’s body language does not look good. He must know that his time at Celtic is coming to an end and his distain for the media was there for all to see yesterday. There may not have been an Andy Walker style outburst but he looks like an angry man who was happy to cut short answers and get out of the media room as soon as possible.
Jeremie Frimpong is set to officially depart from Celtic as I type. The young player burst onto the scene after arriving from Man City but since then he has dived the opinion of the support. At a time when he should be strengthening the team, Celtic have decided to cash in on the youngster who may not have the bottle for life in the Glasgow goldfish bowl although I would say the real reason is for more money for him and his representatives.
He came, he saw, he kissed the jersey and he left for a few dollars more. Expect more to follow in the summer as this chapter of Celtic comes to an end. Who we are writing about in the next chapter remains a mystery as we wait patiently for Dermot Desmond to unveil his plan B.
