Neil Lennon celebrates Celtic title win alone in the forest with a bag of cans

Well, why wouldn’t you?

Celtic boss Neil Lennon celebrated the club’s 9th successive SPL title win alone with the trophy and a big bag of cans in the forest, according to reports.

Lennon’s side, a paltry 13 points clear of second-place Rangers, were controversially handed the title after SPL clubs settled on ending the season early.

Realising that a title presentation wasn’t possible, the former Hoops midfielder took a taxi to SPL headquarters – via an off-licence – to collect his team’s prize.

While balancing the trophy and a hefty bag of cans on his lap, Lennon directed the cab driver to a nearby woodland area.

The 48-year-old Lurgan man spent the evening posing for selfies with the Scottish Premiership trophy while sinking tins of a well-known Scottish lager that tastes like urine.

An inebriated Lennon posted the pics, along with a video of himself singing ‘9 in a row’, to his Instagram story before falling asleep in the woods.

Lennon was discovered the next morning by a dog walker who found the former Leicester City star on the floor, surrounded by empty beer cans and using the SPL trophy as a pillow.

Recalling the moment he stumbled upon the ex-Northern Ireland international, dog walker Bob Woodhouse told us: ‘My beloved Alsatian, Sasha, had just stopped for a sh*te, when I saw something peculiar lying on the ground.

‘Upon closer inspection, it appeared to be a ginger small man curled up in the foetal position.

‘When Sasha licked his face, the wee man leapt to his feet. I couldnae believe it was Neil Lennon.’

After a quick search of the forest for his front door key and phone, Lennon ordered a taxi home.

Recalling his journey with the Celtic boss, cab driver Travis McBickle said: ‘He got in the car and asked me if I was busy, what time I was on to, the usual sh*te. Then he spent the rest of the ride home sighing and deleting his Instagram story’.

A hungover Lennon later Tweeted: ‘That’s me off it’.
