Perspective here please!! Rather than both RFC and CFC fans trying to point score on this, I think that the offer was declined by CFC security as they felt his safety could not be guaranteed. I think that RFC would have done their utmost to protect him.
LEt's face it Jelle1880, Lennon has been very humble in a lot of his interviews toward RFC recently, as recent as yesterday when pre-game he was asked about winning the title and he refused to comment. When he felt that his press conferences were being bogged down about RFC's woes, he stopped them.
Some RFC fans want to see the worst in him, but they should open their eyes.
Why would his safety not be guaranteed in the director's box ?
All I'm saying is that Lennon himself said he wasn't allowed in the director's box, then came out with 'That sums up this country'.
While both Celtic and Rangers said that he was offered a spot there.
I'm not talking about his behaviour, I'm sure he would have been perfectly fine and safe, but I don't see why he felt the need to make that comment.
there is a difference between lennon taking in a game between RFC and say Inverness at Ibrox as opposed to being sent off at half time and watching second half from the box. Surely you can see that?
It sums up the country in that people felt his safety could not be guaranteed. Someone, somewhere said to him yesterday that 'we feel your safety cannot be guaranteed'.
Is that a coat behind Lenny, or have the PLO managed to get into the Rangers director's box also?
Hey, Arafat did have millions stashed away
Maybe he'll make a bid for yiz lol!
A number of very fair and reasoned points raised... He just has to learn to deal with defeat in a more reasoned manner. At the very very best, the Cha decision was a 50 50 call. Listening to Lenny, youd think it was the worst decision since time began!! He will lose creditability as a manager commenting on decisions such as this when players are routinely sent off for such offenses in the modern game!
Your utter hatred stands in the way of logic yet again.
Security professionals advised Lennon his safety was not guaranteed in the stands and wouldn't let him go there this led him to say 'That sums up this country'. He said it because security professionals felt it was unsafe, it wasn't pulled out of his arse.
He never said he felt his safety was at risk.
This hysteria about Lennon and twisting of everything he says is what has his life at risk.
Think before you participate in that nonsense, do you really want to be one of those people?
Lennon is dead right. Are any of the rangers fans on here seriously trying to tell that if it was someone other than a irish catholic there would been have been a problem with him going up into the box? Strachan would have got up there without fears for his security i'm sure. Keep denying the bigotry that's alive at your club. Hopefully after liquidation the newco Rangers FC in whatever form it takes will be more tolerant.
Were you at the game, or meet many Celtic fans on your day to day activities? When you lot scored the 2nd and then 3rd goals, the Broomloan was jumping, dancing, singing, waving flags and balloons. The noise we made actually shut you lot up and dulled your own celebrations.
We were brutal, Aluko done to us what Kenny Miller done two year ago and Naismith done last year. Would have loved to win it yesterday, it never happened so hats off to the rangers players who have been hiding the last few weeks to turn it on against us. Distraught?? You wish.
WE'RE ONLY HERE FOR THE PARTY.
Me thinks you had a few too much before the game.
Outsang from start to finish, every time you started a song it was countered right away.
Celtic security professionals, you mean.
Has nothing to do with hatred, he was perfectly able to go to the director's box, risk-free.
It's Celtic people that, for some weird reason, decided against it.
To then come out with, and I quote:
I would expect so considering the Celtic fans were outnumbered 6 to 1. I heard plenty of Celtic singing during the game
Nonsense. The first hour I can give you that, from then on though when we knew it was game over, it was party time. Again, were you there yesterday? Do you meet many Celtic fans in your day to day activities?
I see Lenny will be hauled before the SFA following yesterday's events at Ibrox. I truly hope this is the last time this happens and that he learns his lesson this time. I think he could be a great Celtic manager and this sort of thing sullies his character unfortunately. Lawwell needs to take him aside and explain that his behaviour at times is unacceptable. I don't know what the answer is? An anger management course?
