LOLZ: Neil Lennon answers a journo’s phone twice (!), speaks with his distressed wife

This is comedy gold.

Neil Lennon was holding a press conference at Celtic ahead for the match on Tuesday night against Dundee United, when the flame-haired gaffer was cut off when a mobile phone on his desk went off.

Unable to ignore the ringing Lennon picked up the phone and started playing secretary.

The phone belonged to a journalist sitting in the crowd, and Lennon answered a call from his wife. The short first phone call brought plenty of banter from the gaffer and the crowd, and the jokes were turned up a notch when the phone went off for a second time a minute later.

Watch Neil Lennon’s brilliant press conference below.
