Neil Lennon had nothing to say but praise for his Celtic side as they ran out 2-0 winners against St. Mirren yesterday; which sees them sit top of the table after 11 games played.
The Celtic boss praised the mentality shown by the Bhoys who have come under a lot of pressure this past week with a demanding schedule which had the Hoops face off against Italian side Lazio in the Europa League, which they ran out 2-1 winners and then later in the week, facing off against a struggling Aberdeen side, in which they cruised to victory, comfortably finishing the game 4-0 after a dominant first half display.
Neil Lennon was delighted and exclaimed his pleasure over how his team has coped with the physical and mental aspects of their demanding schedule.
The Celtic boss exclaimed: “It was a difficult game, difficult opponents and difficult circumstances off the back of the intensity of the last few games.
“They’re sometimes psychologically difficult games.
“You could see that in the first half a little bit.
“We were a little bit hesitant, if you want to call it that.”
At the full-time whistle at Celtic Park, the Hoops Boss was visibly ecstatic with his teams performance following a frustrating first half for the Bhoys in Green. The Hoops showed perseverance to be able to break the deadlock at the beginning of the second half thanks to a wonderful strike from the in-form winger Mohamed Elyounoussi, followed up by another goal by winger James Forrest, who recently signed a contract extension which sees himself tied to the club until 2023.
All in all, it was a satisfying performance by the Celts who sit top of the Scottish Premier Football League on goal difference over arch-rivals Rangers.
