Neil Lennon's government agenda claim is 'appalling', says deputy first minister John Swinney


Celtic manager Neil Lennon's claims of a Scottish government agenda against Celtic are "absolutely appalling," says deputy first minister John Swinney.

Lennon said politics and not public health drove the decision for 16 Celtic players and staff to self-isolate after Christopher Jullien contracted Covid.

Jullien, and subsequently a second player, tested positive following the club's Dubai training camp.

"I'm at a loss for words," Swinney told BBC Radio's Good Morning Scotland.

"I said a few weeks ago I thought it was a really bad idea that Celtic decided to go to Dubai for this trip. I didn't think it was a particularly great signal.

"I have no ill will to Neil Lennon whatsoever, but I think his comments in this respect have been absolutely appalling."


Yesterday it was St Johnstone responding to his incorrect comments. Today it's the Scottish Government. If Celtic have a strategy to be derided by all and sundry, it's taking shape nicely.
