Neil Lennon: Happy with his team's attitude

Neil Lennon: Happy with his team's attitude

The Easter Road setback was Celtic first loss in nine games, and Lennon admits he will accept a similar display from his charges against Motherwell.

Celtic go into Wednesday's match six points clear of their opponents and Inverness Caley at the top of the table, while the team are still involved in all three cup competitions as well.

Lennon said: "We didn't need a boot up the backside. That was not a reality check.

"There was no complacency from what I could see. I would take the same intensity of performance and the desire.

"There was a real hunger to win the ball back, there was a real hunger to win the game, it just didn't drop for us.

"The players will be highly motivated for Motherwell. It is another big game for us.

"There are a lot of teams playing well and scoring goals in the SPL.

"Stuart McCall has done a brilliant job, with the squad he has got, it is underestimated sometimes, but they are very attractive to watch and they are a dangerous team."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
