Neil Baker on the job our ex-player Lennon has acheived at Celtic
Neil Baker has admitted that our weekend practice match against Celtic may have come a little early, but the club couldn’t pass up the opportunity to play against the SPL champions. Crewe will take on Neil Lennon’s side in a behind-closed-doors practice match at their training ground, as they prepare for their Champions League qualifier against Northern Ireland side Clintonville.
Baker told the club’s official web-site: “The Celtic game has probably come a little earlier than we would have liked but you don’t pass up the opportunity to play against Celtic.
“It would be a great test for the players and a chance to get the balls out early.”
On a chance to see Lennon again, Baker said of our former midfielder: “Neil was always a deep thinker and a great lad. He was always tactically aware and knew what was going on out on the pitch.
“Saying that, if I thought that he would go on and manage a massive club like Celtic then at that time I would have said probably not. He loves his football Neil and credit to him he has done a fantastic job there and has proved to be an astute manager.”
