I shift wont go into neutral to allow starting

hi guys,please help or advise,My 2007 i shift civic 1.8 has been laid up for 4 weeks with the battery disconnected. when I reconnected it and carried out the start up procedure,the dashboard lights up like a xmas tree and I can hear a mechanical clanking sound for a few seconds but the car is not showing "N" ,so with the brake pedal down it will not even turn over. I have charged the battery up and no diiference,it just wont seem to select neutral ,any thoughts ?
Im thinking the battery is shot,and would a drop in amps stop the car running through its start up procedure ?

I would put money on it being the battery - modern batteries do not take well to being fully discharged and once they have been flattened, they never truly "recover".

Take a look at Eurocarparts - the have 25% of batteries and I would suggest Bosch.
