'A Crock Of Crap' - Neil Lennon Fires Back At 'Disrespectful' Hearts Manager

"I don’t like this idea that Hibs were gaining any sort of momentum and I want to try to restore the natural order of things," Hearts manager Craig Levein said after Hearts won Sunday's Edinburgh derby in the Scottish Cup.


A late and scrappy Don Cowie goal was the difference between the two sides. Hearts' win ended a run on nine derbies undefeated for Hibs, leading to Levein's comment regarding the "natural order of things".

Levein's words angered Hibs manager Neil Lennon who told the Daily Record that his counterpart was being disrespectful towards Hibs.

"What does that mean, restoring the natural order? I don’t understand that. What is the natural order? Is it Hearts beating Hibs every time? It’s just a crock of crap," said Lennon.

It’s a pretty poor statement to make and I think it’s disrespectful to my club, and my players and me.

And we have got two more games to come so we will see if the natural order is restored then.

That’s not good. I don’t know what he means by it but they have not won in nine, this is my first defeat in five, we also should have won the league game here and they got lucky.

There’s a lack of humility in that statement. I don’t think I have ever made a statement like that.
