Sir Kenny Dalglish insists Celtic boss Neil Lennon's job is still safe

Celtic legend Sir Kenny Dalglish has affirmed that manager Neil Lennon's future at the clubs is not on the rocks as per Daily Record reports.

Dalglish spoke up after it emerged that Celtic could be in trouble with the recent results while they are on a mission to secure their tenth-in-a-row Scottish Premiership title.

“There’s a concern when you lose the toss of the coin at Celtic,” he said.

The Parkhead legend went as far as saying that the Celtic board is far from showing Lennon the door and still believe in his abilities to get the club far despite the losses to rivals Rangers and AC Milan.

He continued: “I would think that the previous record Lenny has bought him a great deal of credit in the bank and it’s not historical – it’s present day.

“If you’ve not got three or four of your best players in, it’s going to be hard for you. That’s what he has had.

“That’s the level they play at and that’s what they are up against. But I don’t think that concern will lead to any drastic measures and that Lenny will be there for a long time.

“I don’t think it’s in dispute, he’ll get a chance. It’s not going to be taken away from him.

“Last year at the winter break Rangers were a game in hand win away from being top of the league, and Lenny went on and won the title, won the Betfred Cup as well, and the third trophy from last year is what they’re playing for on Sunday.

“So it doesn’t look to me like there’s much need for anybody to be over-enthusiastic and try to get rid of somebody.

“And I don’t think he would deserve it because of what he has done for the club.

“The respect he has for the football club is matched by the respect they have for him, so I don’t see any reason for the club to act as badly as some people would suggest.”
