Former Celtic boss Neil Lennon has slammed the European Super League after the breakaway division fell apart on Tuesday.

Both Chelsea and Manchester City have pulled out of the derided cash-grab from 12 European heavyweights with the division hanging by a thread.

Manchester United chairman Ed Woodward has resigned in the wake of the set-up falling to pieces.

It would have left European Cup Winners Celtic boxed out of the elite competition along with a host of big name clubs.

However, former Parkhead boss Lennon let rip of the platform and the impact it would have had on British football's institutions like Celtic in a live Sky Sports reaction.

When asked about how he views the Super League with his strong Celtic connection and European exploits, he said: “Yes, it can’t be a Super League without the like of PSG, Bayern Munich, Benfica anyway.

“This has been a concept that has been talked about for a long, long time, but just the manner in which is was brought out publicly and that there was going to be no relegation, it just was a non-starter for me.

“I don’t think the owners of these clubs who are dominated by money and power have really got a depth of feeling of people around the world, in Europe, particularly here in Britain, and not only for their own clubs but what it means to people in the UK.

‘Already we are seeing clubs backtracking and it’s a complete embarrassment for them.”
