Football pundit Neil Lennon displayed his characteristic vigor not only during his managerial career but also in an unexpected audible fashion.
Lennon, the former manager of Celtic, Hibernian, and Bolton, was renowned for his passionate touchline displays.
Neil Lennon’s Puzzling Pause During Punditry Appearance
It seems that this fiery demeanor has persisted, as fans recently believed they heard him emit an unusual sound during a punditry appearance.
Lennon, now 52, joined PLZ’s The Football Show to discuss current Scottish football headlines. However, the hosts got more than they bargained for when it sounded like the seasoned tactician had an unscripted, shall we say, outburst.
While dissecting Michael Beale’s role in Rangers’ recent struggles and their defeat in the Old Firm match, Lennon had an unmistakable pause while deep in thought.
Neil Lennon’s Unflinching Reaction to Unusual Studio Sounds
The microphone then picked up a sound that was undeniably reminiscent of flatulence before he swiftly resumed discussing the topic at hand.
“He needs to find, first of all, the [pause and noise] best formation that suits this squad of players,” said the former Northern Ireland international with 40 caps to his name, without missing a beat. “And he should know, Peter, because he’s brought these players in himself.”
Curiously, no one else in the studio reacted in real-time to this unexpected sonic interruption. Either Lennon’s indiscretion failed to register with his fellow hosts at the time, or PLZ boasts an exceptionally composed and professional team.
The video clip quickly spread across social media, prompting mixed reactions from fans. Some found humor in the situation, considering it a case of “better out than in.” Others downplayed the incident, likening it to a “Tommy squeaker,” emphasizing its insignificance.
Having managed on some of the grandest stages in football for over a decade, there is no reason why the County Armagh native should feel nervous about his punditry appearances. On the other hand, some viewers might interpret this episode as one of the boldest on-set maneuvers ever witnessed.
