Celtic boss Neil Lennon points finger at other Scottish Premiership clubs over their coronavirus protocols


Neil Lennon has pointed the finger at a number of Scottish Premiership clubs and questioned their coronavirus protocols.

The Celtic manager confirmed another of his players has tested positive for Covid-19 as he angrily hit back at criticism of the club’s controversial trip to Dubai today.

Lennon missed recent draws against Hibernian and Livingston as he was self-isolating following the mid-season training camp.

And now the Hoops boss has claimed that some Scottish Premiership’s clubs have not been following the strict protocols in place.

He said: “Show me anyone who is doing the right things. 

“When we played Hibs we had to bus six players in two buses because we were told now that is the way it has to be.

“Three people on a 52 seater bus. That has not been going on throughout the season.

“We have been going to away grounds where we are cramped in like sardines. 

“Boxing Day at Hamilton there was no social distancing there, there was no physical distancing. 

“It is inconsistent. Protocols of different clubs are inconsistent.

“We go to St Johnstone all crammed into a little dressing room. Inconsistent. 

“As soon as Celtic are deemed to do something wrong then bang. You are all wanting blood. It is absolutely scandalous.”

Both St Johnstone and Hamilton have been approached for comment.
