Boss helps duo fight depression; FOOTBALL SHORTS CELTIC.

NEIL Lennon revealed he has helped "a couple of younger players at our club" deal with depression.

The Hoops boss, 40, who suffers from the illness, did not go into detail about his dealings with the Parkhead players but urged anyone who is affected not to be "ashamed" to seek help.

He said: "It is not a sign of laziness, or nothing to be ashamed of, it is a very difficult situation to deal with.

"People say 'go on holiday', 'go and have a rest' but you take the depression with you.

"The best thing I have found over the years to cope with it is to talk about it, get professional help and if there is a tablet you have to take that suits youthen do that.

"Some of the strongest, most intelligent, driven individuals in the history of the world have suffered from depression."
