Scottish Football LIVE: Latest news and transfer speculation (03/12/20)

  • New favourite to replace Lennon
  • Celtic accused of Rangers ‘arrogance’

Gerrard on King relationship

Steven Gerrard revealed the news of Dave King selling his shares to Club 1872 came as a slight surprise.

The Rangers manager admits to have a “strong” relationship with the Ibrox chairman but feels the move to make the fan group the biggest shareholder will strengthen that connection between club and supporter.

Celtic accused of Rangers ‘arrogance’

Sky Sports pundit and former Celtic ace Andy Walker has accused the club of “arrogance” regarding the threat of Rangers.

In a blistering critique of his former side, Walker also questioned the decision to persist with Lennon.

He told Sky Sports: "If Lennon turns things around and somehow gets his players back onside, I'll be the first to admit I got it wrong and acknowledge what a remarkable job he has done. But what if Dermot Desmond and the Celtic board are blindly sticking by him, refusing to bow to mob rule but ignoring the obvious out of spite?"

"It's extremely complacent to replace a manager of the calibre of Brendan Rodgers by appointing an out-of-work manager in Lennon and not allowing him any coaching staff of his own.

“It's also arrogant to completely disregard the growing threat of your one and only rival for the title. Too many people at Celtic have been laughing at Rangers for too long and didn't take the progress under Steven Gerrard seriously.”

New bookies favourite for next Celtic boss

Neil Lennon will lead Celtic out at the San Siro this evening for their Europa League clash with AC Milan.

The club legend has been given the backing of the board with any change unlikely.

However, it has done little to dampen speculation with a new name favourite as a possible replacement.

Former Celtic boss Martin O’Neill is now the bookies favourite.
