Garth Crooks Argues Celtic Need To Get Rid Of Lennon And Appoint 'A Winner'

As Celtic wrapped up their eighth successive Premiership title with a 3-0 victory over Aberdeen, BBC pundit Garth Crooks put forward his argument as to why they should let Neil Lennon leave the club.

The former Tottenham midfielder was speaking on the BBC Final Score programme. He argued that Celtic need to elect for a 'winner' as their next boss to match Steven Gerrard.

Rangers are breathing down their necks. They need to make sure they have someone at the helm who can take them forward and keep Rangers where they want them to be. That's not an easy task.

Steven Gerrard is a winner. I've seen it with England, with Liverpool. That kid wants to be successful and he will be. You need somebody at Celtic who can compete with that man in every sense. I think the bigger the club, the bigger the personality at the top of the job. I think Neil's had his time there and it's time to move it on.
