Celtic boss Neil Lennon takes aim at Scottish national team with bizarre conga claim


Neil Lennon has further defended Celtic’s trip to Dubai by taking aim at the Scottish national team.

The Hoops gaffer returned from his ten days of isolation today and spoke to the media for the first time since Celtic returned from the UAE.

Lennon says his team broke no rules during the trip abroad despite images emerging of staff and players lounging by a swimming pool with drinks.

But he has now pointed to the Scottish national team and questioned their Covid protocols after their victory over Serbia in the Nations League play-off final.

Footage emerged of the squad dancing round a table doing the David Marshall conga as they qualified for their first major tournamnet in 20 years.

Lennon said: “It’s not as if they were doing a conga in the dressing room and dancing to Baccara – or travelling a train journey from Glasgow to London with Covid.

“The fallout from this has been way too much – there’s a bit of bullying going on.

“We didn’t abuse any ‘privilege’, we did the right things, we were totally professional.

“We had a little drink in the afternoon on the day of, completely allowed, no law breaking.

“But we come back to this barrage of absolute hypocrisy.”
