Neil Lennon has repeated his determination to protect his players from the hysteria surrounding back-to-back home defeats.

There was some positive signs in the 3-1 defeat from AC Milan but that is mainly coming from the incredibly low base of Saturday’s Derby defeat with the Italian’s already leading 2-0.

After an unconvincing start to the season and uncertainty over formation and player selection there is obvious concern online about the way this season has operated, not being able to attend matches clearly has an impact on fan opinion as well.

Lennon is the buffer between the fans and the players but is probably coming in for more criticism than anyone else at the club.

A win on Sunday will put Celtic one point behind the league leaders who host Livingston at Ibrox soon after the final whistle at Aberdeen.

The fixture list is unrelenting with the hoops in France on Thursday to take on Lille in the Europa League followed by the Scottish Cup semi-final against Aberdeen at Hampden.
