Riled Celtic supporters staged a protest this evening at Parkhead following the East End club's 2-0 defeat to Ross County. 

Crowds of up to 500 were dispersed by police as scores of officers and a police helicopter were drafted to the scene to break up the demonstration. 

Disgruntled supporters made calls for club manager Neil Lennon to step down, with the club winning only two out of their last 10 games. 

Police formed rows of human shields at the East End stadium as they blocked angered fans from accessing the grounds. 

Glasgow Times:

One fan said: "To get 10-in-a-row, he's got to go.

"He's really not got his head in the game anymore and that is visible in the games and clearly visible in the wins."

It's not the first time supporters have gathered at Parkhead to call for the departure of Neil Lennon after around 50 supporters reportedly took to the grounds on Wednesday with a banner that read "save the ten - time to go Neil".

Glasgow Times:

Celtic supporter, Ritchie Douglas said: "I was here on Wednesday and I'll be here again if we lose another.

"Lennon has brought us a lot of success in the past but the way we are performing now is unacceptable. We are completely lacking. 

"He needs to swallow his pride and do what's best for the bhoys. The club must come first."

Glasgow Times:

Another supporter added: "It's embarrassing defeat after defeat. He needs to do the club a favour and call it a day. 

"He done us well in the past but time is time.

"If we don't get 10-in-a-row, that's on him."

Following the fixture with Ross County this evening, Lennon could hear the shouts as he walked into his post-match media conference and said: “It doesn’t make me feel good obviously. We are not in a good moment.

“The game is a small microcosm of the run we are on: penalty and set-play. We have given the opposition free hits.

“We dominated the game and lacked a bit of quality in the final third.”

Glasgow Times:

When asked what would he would say to the supporters outside, Lennon said: “What can I say? That’s their opinion. It’s been rumbling for a while.

“It doesn’t matter what I say or what sort of bravado I put on. It won’t wash. I have to turn it round with results. I can only do that with the players.”

When asked whether he gave himself a time frame for that, Lennon said: “No. Next game possible, whether it be AC Milan or St Johnstone next week.”
