Neil Lennon: Still calling for more from his Celtic side

An overhead kick from Georgios Samaras and a well-executed lob from Gary Hooper earned Celtic a 2-0 victory at Dundee and sent Lennon's side seven points clear at the top of the table on Boxing Day.

Hibernian have only taken one point from four games, the latest seeing them lose 1-0 at home to Ross County, but Pat Fenlon's side remain in fourth place in the SPL standings ahead of Saturday's encounter at Easter Road.

Lennon told his club's official website: "Hibs will be a tough proposition at home. Pat has turned them around fantastically well. Obviously they had a disappointing result yesterday.

"Easter Road is always a good venue and I'm looking forward to the game.

"I would like to think we would play better than last night and be stronger."

Lennon may have to shuffle his pack after Charlie Mulgrew went off injured midway through the Dens Park clash while winger James Forrest is pushing for a start after twice coming off the bench to good effect following his return from a hamstring problem.

Shape

Lennon said: "We got Forrest on and he opened up the game again.

"At the minute, he's trying to find his full fitness. Without any natural width in the team, there was a bit of an imbalance to the way we were playing at times but when he comes on you can see the shape and the players looking happier. He gives us an extra thrust as well."

Regarding Mulgrew's fitness, the Celtic boss added: "Charlie has damaged a rib or pulled a muscle in the rib area. He was finding it hard to breathe so he will have to be assessed.

"He was playing very well and had a great first half. That was an enforced change."
