The increasingly boring question of whether or not there is conspiracy in Scottish football against Glasgow Celtic took on a sinister turn with the rumour that manager Neil Lennon is set to reveal some even more bizarre claims.
Its understood that the excitable Lennon is considering taking legal action against the SPL for allowing Sunday's fixture against Dundee United to go ahead despite the waterlogged state of the pitch. In the post match press conference, Lennon fumed "I firmly believe that the referee's decision to play the game was a deliberate attempt to expose our players to treacherous underfoot conditions and thus risk injury prior to the Old Firm game next week".
The fact that Celtic won 3-1 and all players came through the game unscathed seems to be neither here nor there.
Even more bizarre is the lovable Neil starting to make comparisons between his current situation and the death of his namesake John. The Parkhead boss is alleged to have stated that the former Fab Four frontman's 4 year immigration struggle with the U.S. authorities - and his premature death at the hands of a fan - bear a strong resemblance to the ginger one's trials and tribulations with Scottish football.
Apart from the obvious remark that John Lennon had to fight to gain his Green card, Neil points out that the musician was gunned down by Mark Chapman not long after the release of his latest album, "Double Fantasy". This describes perfectly how Neil views winning the Premier League and Scottish Cup.
Freaky or What ?
