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."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

I

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
