Neil Lennon wasn’t slow to call out his critics after winning at Ibrox with Sky Sports and Charles Paterson given special name checks!
At Friday’s pre-match media conference the Celtic boss was noticeably annoyed by news that his side were the outsiders according to the bookmakers.

The losses of Kris Ajer and Jozo Simunovic limited Lennon’s options in defence but in adversity the new bhoys grew in stature, after 90 minutes at Ibrox they are now time served Celtic players ready to face anything the Scottish game has to throw at them.
Celtic dominated from early on, the defence settled quickly with their attacking quartet posing awkward questions of the home defenders before Odsonne Edouard broke the deadlock.
Despite losing Nir Bitton Celtic stuck to their task, in stoppage time Johnny Hayes put the match beyond doubt and suddenly Lennon was a master tactician.
Next time the two clubs clash Lennon might just feature in the opening graphics!
