Mjallby - Lennon situation is `madness'

21 April 2011 08:30
Celtic assistant manager Johan Mjallby described as "madness" the latest security fears around Neil Lennon. The lead-up to the 4-0 win over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park focused on the revelation that parcel bombs had been sent to the Celtic manager, a lawyer and a politician. Strathclyde Police launched an investigation after the parcels "designed to cause harm" were sent to Lennon, Paul McBride QC and Labour politician Trish Godman. The former Celtic skipper had bullets sent to him earlier in the season and a suspicious package addressed to him was intercepted. Hoops fans chanted in support of Lennon throughout the Clydesdale Bank Premier League match and the Irishman went to both ends of the stadium at the end of the game, where he was met with rapturous applause. Mjallby said: "He loves being manager of Celtic and we are lucky to be working for a club with such great support. I heard the fans and it was great because what happened to him was madness and a shame, and it shouldn't happen to anyone whatever they do in life."
