Neil Lennon: Celtic boss has been dazzled by the contribution of Kris Commons

Neil Lennon: Celtic boss has been dazzled by the contribution of Kris Commons

Commons combined with Georgios Samaras with three minutes on the clock to get behind the Caley Thistle defence and blast a low drive through the keeper's legs for the decisive goal.

Lennon has previously stated the former Derby midfielder, who was signed for £500,000 in January 2011, has been his most valuable purchase.

And the Hoops boss reiterated his opinion of the 30-year-old as he took is goals tally in the current campaign to 15 as Celtic claimed a second away win in four day, following the 1-0 success over St Johnstone.

"He is wonderful and he is in wonderful form," Lennon said. "I thought the goal was brilliant and when you see Kris in those positions you get disappointed when he doesn't score, he's that good at it.

"That is 15 for the season for us now, so he has been absolutely huge for me in the past couple of years and I think he will only get better.

"With the pitch being heavy as it is, it is very difficult to play quick football, the ball bobbled quite a bit. It is the winter. The conditions are going to prove to be difficult.

"It is not conducive to flowing football and at times you have to be a bit more physical and grind out results and that is what we have done in the last two games."

Inverness manager John Hughes was frustrated at the timing of the goal, but felt his team competed throughout the match.

"We are disappointed to lose the match with the early goal," said Hughes. "The first thing you say when playing Celtic is keep it tight for 20 minutes so to lose that goal was disappointing.

"The way we went about our business; we passed it about very well and the ball retention was very good.

"You are not going to create chance after chance against Celtic. You are playing against a right good football team. But when a few chances come along you hope that you take them."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
