Celtic manager: Mackay has done great job at Cardiff

Celtic's Neil Lennon is the latest manager to come to the support of Malky Mackay, over his rift with Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan.

The 41-year-old Scot is still in charge of Cardiff as things stand, but was issued a "resign or be sacked" ultimatum by Malaysian owner Tan earlier this week.

Lennon said Mackay has been "magnificent" during his two-and-a-half years as Cardiff manager. "He's done a fantastic job. I don't know what more he can do."

"I really don't see what the problem is with him, and why the owner wants to get involved in such a way that's disruptive to what Malky and his backroom team and his players are doing."
