Neil Lennon’s retaliation to David Bre…sorry, Kenny Shiels recent dig, provoked a response from the Kilmarnock manager himself. Now Lennon could have played down the original comment but he played it instead.
Shiels, denying any wrongdoing of course, attempted to ‘diffuse’ the matter by criticising Lennon for being too serious. Oh how we laughed at the misunderstanding!
What banter shall we have next then Kenny? Something vile about catholic’s?
Lennon is unlikely to comment further but you never know. Personally, I would leave it though Lennon is a far better speaker than I.
This clichéd “paranoia” jibe stands out as much as Kenny Shiels ears do. The subject is well past its sell by date and as Neil quite rightly said, in recent times Celtic’s challenging of matters has been justified.
For many years there was “no story here, timmy” but that all crumbled with the Jim Farry case. Since then Celtic have had to challenge other matters within the game they felt strongly about within the game, I mean are we supposed to accept everything in football?
This FC Paranoid banter by Shiels is somewhat ironic though. To nickname Celtic for being paranoid, when in fact through evidence the club have been anything but, makes Shiels look like a Killie pie.
It’s quite clearly a case of the “banter” – you know, the one where it suits the offender to says it is? In my opinion Lennon was well within his rights to stop Shiels in his tracks.
Spouting such garbage is clearly moronic though representative of the array of eejits that populate the Scottish game. Kenny Shiels may not be a native of Scotland but he seems to conform to the “banter bandwagon” much like other clubs and personnel do within Scotland.
