NEIL LENNON has confirmed another Celtic player has tested positive for Covid-19 as he angrily hit back at criticism of the club’s controversial trip to Dubai.
The Celtic boss missed the 1-1 draw against Hibernian and the goalless draw with Livingston at Parkhead as he was self-isolating following the mid-season training camp.
Lennon, assistant John Kennedy and 13 players had to isolate after Christopher Jullien tested positive for coronavirus and chief executive Peter Lawwell admitted the trip was “a mistake” and apologised to Hoops fans.
Ahead of last Wednesday’s trip to Livingston, Lennon responded to a question about his time self-isolating by saying: “It has been interesting watching the fall-outs, the media and the attacks on the club.”
He then said: “Another player has been deemed positive, it is someone who is self-isolating.
“Everyone is negative bar two players.
“I think that is remarkable and blows out the water the way the trip has been portrayed in certain quarters of the media, by certain pundits and by certain government officials as well.
“We didn’t abuse any ‘privilege’, we did the right things, we were totally professional.
“We had a little drink in the afternoon on the day off, completely allowed, no law breaking. But we come back to this barrage of absolute hypocrisy.”
