I notice that the BBC report on speculation associating Neil Lennon with the managerial vacancy at Everton, says that the Celtic boss has ‘cooled speculation’ about his status as bookies favourite for the job.
Lets examine what Lenny said yesterday:
“Everton are a huge club a great club with great history, and they just lost probably one of the greatest managers in their history.
“It is flattering as I said to be linked with them but that’s all it is, just a link.”
Using your skill and judgement, how would you précis what he has said here?
1) The BBC report is correct and he has distanced himself from the job.
2) The use of the words huge, great and greatest in the space of one sentence about Everton in no way mean that Neil does in fact want to be their manager.
3) Gie’s a job Mr Kenwright please.
