Should Neil Lennon stop talking to the media?

Seems the knives are out for Neil Lennon, time to stop talking to the press?

Clearly they are making something out the word “criminal” which is a colloquialism for “dreadful” and suggesting he is accusing the Ref of taking a deliberate decision to adversely affect the game in Kilmarnock’s favour (cheating)
And why should a manager not be able to speak freely about a referee’s performance, so long as he doesn’t accuse the ref of deliberate foul action that may adversely affect a game in the favour of the opposition?
Over to you……

  1. Managers and players should be allowed to criticise a referee if they feel they have a case. I notice from Lennon’s statement there are no allegations of the ref being biassed nor does he insult the referee.
    Once again given McCoist’s recent out bursts you have to ask once again does the SFA have selective hearing? In my opinion the answer is yes.

  3. My own view is NO he shouldn’t stop talking to the media,
    Neil, like any manager is entitled to take journos to task if they have been over the top or misguided in their critiscism of them. But to stop talking to the media surely is wrong. It smacks a wee bit of “don’t say anything about me or a willnae talk to you” ….a bit childish, remember Souness when he stopped talking to either the BBC or STV cause they showed him in the tunnel when he was banned………..properly childish I thought, NL should rise above it and take the higher moral stance
    I agree with James that managers should be allowed to critiscise refs, but it must be constructive, not destructive critiscim…. I did think it was a penalty, but after seeing replays I dont think it was.
    If managers are allowed to critisice refs then if their view of a controversial decision is later proved the ref was right, then managers should man up and apologise.

  5. I would defo suggest he stops talking to the media, does not matter what Neil says they twist it to suit.

  7. More importantly…people should stop buying the anti-Celtic garbage that passes for newspaper’s.
    e.g The Daily broken Record
    The Scottish Scum etc.
