Celtic beat Kilmarnock in fairy-tale fashion on Saturday afternoon, but Neil Lennon’s use of one January signing is driving fans crazy.
Celtic picked up yet another win on the road to their eighth consecutive title on Saturday, but this one came in truly wonderful fashion.
In a week when the club lost their greatest and most iconic player, captain Billy McNeill, Jozo Simunovic headed in the only goal on 67 minutes to give the Bhoys all three points.
Be sure to check out the incredible story of the man who rose from a Tanzanian refugee camp to become one of Australia’s biggest football stars in the video below…
Simunovic of course dons the same number five that McNeill won 23 major trophies in, and 1967 was the year McNeill guided the Lisbon Lions to the European Cup.
It wasn’t all plain sailing in the match though, and the drab performances with little creativity are starting to become a serious mark against Lennon’s chances of becoming permanent manager.
His use of Oliver Burke in particular is infuriating fans, as the dynamic winger once again warmed the bench and watched on as the Hoops struggled to crack open the Killie defence.
Abysmal performance, game was crying out for Burke or Weah's direct pace,

It’s official, Neil Lennon is on drugs.

Obviously normal punters don’t know injuries and stuff! But how Burke doesn’t start since Lennon came in is astounding!! And no Weah wtf different ?

Surely need to put Oliver Burke on crying out for him

Incredibly one dimensional under Lennon, Lustig & Izza our first choices back in 2012, shows zero intention. Oliver Burke has to come on sharp, another scrappy 0-0 or 1-0 looks inevitable. #celtic
