A lot of Celtic fans have bemoaned the standard of the team’s performances since Neil Lennon took over as interim manager back in February.

His team has, his critics have claimed, been lucky at Hearts, poor at Dundee, lacklustre against Aberdeen and flat in the match with Livingston at the weekend.

It has also been pointed out they were disappointing in the second-half against Rangers when their opponents had gone down to 10 men even though they won the match.

The Celtic board will be looking at that themselves as they consider whether to persevere with Neil or bring in another manager.

Many people think he shouldn’t get it because of recent performances. But one of the reasons for their form of late is because they have won the league. They will be celebrating another title win two or three games into the post-split fixtures.

I know as a player that when you have won the league there is a tendency to switch off and think the job is done. I think there has been complacency there from the players as a result.

The William Hill Scottish Cup semi-final against Aberdeen at Hampden on Sunday is huge for Neil Lennon as he bids to land the manager’s job on a permanent basis.

Should he really be judged on this one game and then, if they win it, the final? Sorry, but I don’t think so. We already know what Neil is all about. I believe he is a better manager than he was first time around.

Of course, if he wins and delivers the treble then it will be very difficult indeed for them not to give him the gig full-time.
