Kris Commons newsNeil Lennon will forgive his players an off day following the 1-1 draw with Ross County.

The style and excitement that swept Partick Thistle aside in midweek was posted missing as the champions came from a goal behind to draw with their relegation threatened opponents.

Teenagers Liam Henderson and Eoghan O’Connell made a favourable impression but the stalwarts of the title success were cut some slack by their manager.

“We were a wee bit flat,” Lennon admitted. “I totally understand that. The game was an aside to the celebrations really.

“We had no preparation for this at all and you could probably see that by the way we played, but overall I am not angry or disappointed or anything like that.

“We will play better between now and the end of the season that’s for sure. When we get the trophy that will be another day of celebration and quite rightly so.

“I think the players made plans for this evening and some of them might have had half a mind on it before the game but they deserve it and we are still looking forward to the remainder of the season, where I am looking for six wins if we can.

“We might change the shape of the team as we go along as well, I will look at different aspects of the way we want to play. I want a bit more vibrancy in the next six games.”

Next Saturday Celtic face Dundee United at Tannadice with the Scottish Cup semi-finalists earning an impressive draw at Aberdeen yesterday.
