Neil Lennon’s final season at Celtic was one of the great managerial catastrophes. It was above all an object lesson in the perils of having it too easy for too long.

When the season began, few managers looked in a more enviable position than the Armagh man. Not only did Celtic seem nailed on for another title, having had 13 points to spare over Rangers at last season’s premature end, but victory would complete a record breaking 10 in a row. Lennon would go down in history.
