Watch: Celtic Fans Gather Outside Parkhead To Demand Lennon Sacking

Watch: Celtic Fans Gather Outside Parkhead To Demand Lennon Sacking

It has not been a good season for Celtic.

Entering the campaign dreaming of a tenth consecutive league title and major progress in European competition, the last couple of months have been a disaster.

Not only were they eliminated from the Champions League and subsequently the Europa League, but Celtic also look increasingly likely to surrender their domestic crown to Rangers.

What's more, their situation seems to be getting even worse. They were eliminated from the League Cup this afternoon after a 2-0 defeat at home to Ross County, while they also sit 11 points behind Rangers in the league (albeit with two games in hand).

There is still plenty of time to turn their season around, but many supporters have had enough.

A number of the club's fans have gathered outside Parkhead this evening to demand that Neil Lennon be sacked as manager. As you can see from the video below, quite a sizeable crowd has turned up at the ground.

This has been brewing for quite some time. While the lack of supporters in stadiums at the minute does lessen the potentially toxic atmosphere at Celtic, a quick look online will let you know that a large section of the club's supporters are unhappy with Lennon's management.

With results continuing to deteriorate, that situation is unlikely to change in the short-term.

Chris Sutton has responded to this evening's incident, saying those involved have no right to call themselves Celtic fans.

It's certainly fair to say that all is not well at Celtic Park.
