Pundit Davie Provan expects Celtic to announce two high-profile departures


Davie Provan believes Neil Lennon and Nicky Hammond will follow Peter Lawwell out of Celtic.

Parkhead chief executive Lawwell this week announced that he would be leaving the club in the summer after 17 years in charge of the Hoops.

Lennon is still currently Celtic boss but after defeat to St Mirren yesterday, the pressure is really starting to mount.

Pundit Provan now reckons Lennon and head of recruitment Hammond will leave Parkhead sooner rather than later.

Writing in The Scottish Sun, he said: “Neil Lennon and his backroom team will be next out the door followed by head of recruitment Nicky Hammond. Hopefully, anonymous chairman Ian Bankier will do the decent thing as well. The club needs gutted from top to bottom.

“This season was an accident waiting to happen. All it took was for Rangers to put a proper team on the pitch and Gerrard has done that. Hoops punters, seduced by the worthless pursuit of The Ten, are now confronting an inconvenient truth.

“An opportunity to dominate Rangers and the rest of Scottish football for years has been blown.

“Despite fawning media coverage, his legacy [Lawwell] is not a pretty sight. For starters, his announcement leaves Lennon twisting in the wind. Lenny deserves better than to find himself warming the seat. With the title now gone he should be paid up now.”
