The European fall of a historical: Celtic Glasgow

For the third consecutive year, the Catholic team has been eliminated in the previous round of the Champions League. His fans ask for Lennon's head.


It has been a long time since Scottish teams lost almost all their chances of achieving something important at the European level. The last great feat of his football was Rangers' qualification for the UEFA final in 2008, in which the Protestant team from Glasgow lost to Zenit (2-0). But that was an exception in the last 30 years. In general, fans of Scottish teams are content not to make a fool of themselves in the group stage of the Champions League. However, in recent years fans in the British kingdom have not even been able to hear the anthem of the top European competition in their stadiums.

And the main culprit for this is Celtic. With Rangers reaching the end of their reconstruction (they were relegated to the Fourth Division in 2012 and have already achieved two runners-up in a row thanks to Steven Gerrard), the Catholics of Glasgow have made the Scottish league a true monopoly in the last nine years in which he has won nine titles in a row, being the only ones with the possibility of playing the Champions League throughout that period. Until three seasons ago, it was normal to see the first British champion of Europe in the group stage pots, but, after the fall of Neil Lennon's team against Ferencvaros last Wednesday, Celtic will not play the Cup Europe for the third consecutive year.

This situation has not sat well with Catholic fans, who see how one of the great historic clubs of old Europe (it was champion of the European Cup in 1967) is unable to even fight for a place in Pot 4 of the group stage. For this reason, through social networks and local media, Celtic supporters have asked for the head of their coach, Neil Lennon, a historic club, who has not won the ninth consecutive league to sit safely this season on Celtic Park bench.
