Celtic ace Shane Duffy had a shocking cameo against Rangers

When Celtic brought Shane Duffy in on a season-long loan from Premier League side Brighton in the summer transfer window, Neil Lennon was quick to point out just what a great signing they had made.

The Hoops boss said: “He is leader and a warrior – someone with real ability and who will also give us that great physical presence. I know too he is a player who will add great personality to the dressing room.”

Should Neil Lennon be SACKED today?





Fast forward a few months though, and it’s been nothing short of a disaster. He’s started just one of the past eight league games, whilst his cameo in the 1-0 defeat to Rangers in the Old Firm clash on Saturday afternoon proved just how big of a disaster he’s been.

Duffy came on for Leigh Griffiths mid-way through the second-half to partner Kristoffer Ajer at the back following Nir Bitton’s sending off, and whilst he made a few towering headers, he really should have been red carded himself for a reckless challenge on Rangers winger Ryan Kent.

Such was his abysmal cameo, that many Celtic fans took to Twitter urging for the club to just send him back to Brighton.

Even though it only is a loan deal for the season, there’s no questioning that Duffy has been an awful signing for the Bhoys. The fact Lennon seemed to trust Bitton more than an actual centre-back like the Irishman just delivered a damning statement on where the 29-year-old currently stands.

Peter Lawwell got this one all wrong.
