Andy Walker WILL be on Sky Sports commentary for Livingston vs Celtic despite furious Neil Lennon’s apology demand


Andy Walker will continue his normal commentary duties for Sky Sports at Livingston this evening despite Celtic boss Neil Lennon’s furious tirade against the former striker, and Times Sport understands.

Lennon launched a blistering attack on the Sky man after Walker questioned the club’s decision to head on a ‘jolly’ to Dubai for a winter training camp. The Celtic manager took his comments as a lack of respect and questions against his professionalism.

And he called for a public apology and threatened the TV giants with silence from his players in the build-up to the game.

However Walker WILL be in the gantry for this evening’s game at the Tony Macaroni Arena.

Speaking to journalist Charles Paterson, Lennon said earlier this week: “You can’t go on a public platform and spread lies and insults about my professionalism, my players’ professionalism.

“About 70-80 per cent of the group are teetotal and you know the inference and innuendo that he is making. It is not a stag do, it isn’t an ’18-30′ even though it has been portrayed like that. We went out there with the best intentions.

“I want Andy to apologise because he was demanding apologies from the club. I want an apology from Andy because he has questioned my professional integrity, my players’ professional integrity and the use of the word jolly is crass and arrogant.

“He accused the club of being arrogant last week. We weren’t. Does he speak for the Celtic support? Is he all of a sudden the man of the people? Andy’s been in the game here for 20,30 years, he has made no contribution to Celtic whatsoever.

“He stood up there as if he is a Celtic legend and a stalwart of the club, putting the boot into me, the club and everybody else. He is totally out of order.
