Neil Lennon described Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell as "very, very supportive" on the day some Hoops fans very publicly called for their manager to go.

A banner held up outside Parkhead read "Save the ten - time to go Neil", while the Green Brigade, the ultras section of the Celtic support, also released a statement which called for Lawwell and the board to act quickly lest the chance to make it 10 Premiership titles in a row is missed.

Celtic came back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Hibernian on Saturday, but it ultimately left them with two wins out of their last eight games in all competitions and 11 points behind Premiership leaders Rangers, albeit the Hoops have two games in hand.

Boss Lennon said: "Obviously all of us are not happy with the way things are panning out at the minute. But there is a calmness about Peter and the board. There's no panic. We have been over the course and distance many times before.

"I speak to Peter every day. He is very, very supportive, as he is with the players and my backroom team as well.

Lennon, preparing for the Europa League clash with Sparta Prague on Thursday, insists he will not buckle.

He said: "I have sort of reconciled myself with the fact that maybe I am not going to be everyone's cup of tea.

"But it is a great privilege doing this job, the club means a lot to me and it has done for the last 20 years.

"I'm strong, I feel strong, my backroom team are strong and the players will only get better and more consistent as we go along."
