Neil Lennon Under Pressure At Off Key Celtic

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 19 October 2011, 09:43

The pressure is mounting on Celtic boss Neil Lennon following the club's disappointing start to the season. Both Lennon and his players have been heavily criticised for Celtic's lacklustre performances which has left them third in the Scottish Premier League and winless in Europe. The Next Celtic Manager betting market has now opened up following their poor form with former boss Martin O'Neill installed as the 9/2 favourite, while Paul Lambert and Billy Davies are also in the mix with odds of 5/1 with Stan James.

The Hoops are currently ten points behind Old Firm rivals Rangers in the SPL, a considerable margin considering they have only played ten matches. Celtic had to battle back from three goals down to snatch a draw away to Kilmarnock at the weekend, a result which saw them slip three points behind second-placed Motherwell. Although Lennon will be pleased with the way his side fought back he will be bitterly disappointed with the first-half performance which saw Celtic leak in three goals. Inconsistency has been the club's major problem this season and there has also been recent media speculation that Lennon has lost the confidence of his players, and if that is true then it will only be a matter of time until he is given the boot.

Celtic are in European action on Thursday night as they prepare for an important game away to Rennes in Group I. Celtic are currently bottom of the group with just a point from their opening two matches which means they will be gunning for a win to get themselves back in with a chance of qualifying. It will certainly be a tough ask as Rennes are unbeaten in eight European home games, with Stan James installing the French side as the odds on 7/10 favourites to come away with a win. Celtic have been handed odds of 4/1 to pick up the three points while a draw is available at 13/5.

Three days later Lennon will be looking to haul Celtic back into contention in the league with home win against Aberdeen. Celtic are the 1/4 favourites to win the match, with Aberdeen priced as 10/1 outsiders, with a draw at 9/2.
