I received the following request by a Celtic fan, it is terrible that people would resort to such violence.
I was hoping to appeal to your better nature as football fans!
I’m Celtic supporter and as many of you will be aware of our manager, Neil Lennon, is the victim of horrendous sectarianism abuse. He has received death threats and bullets and recently this week, parcel bombs addressed to him were intercepted by police. Our manager is under severe security as the threat to his life is very real. I know I’m a Celtic supporter, but as everyone on his forum are football fans, you can understand how much these bomb threats are completely beyond the game of football. It’s gone too far.
What we are asking every club we can get is that on the 18th minute (Neil Lennon’s squad number when he played for Celtic) of Liverpool’s next game, that supporters can have a 2minute applause and chant Neil Lennon’s name as a sign of support for our manager. It’s time for ALL football fans to unite and drive away the hatred that is ruining our manager’s life.
I was going to ask if its possible if the fans could do this this weekend? its would be greatly appreciated the more coverage of support for Neil the better as far as I am concerned.
Its time to show football fans united at the end of the day thats what it is about football not race or religion!! there is no reason why he should be treated like a second class citizen i would be extremley greatful if you could help with this – any questions please feel free to ask.
