Neil Lennon celebrates Celtic title win alone in the forest with a bag of cans
Well, why wouldn’t you?
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.’
‘That’s when Sasha accidentally bit him’, claimed the Rangers season ticket holder.
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’.
