Neil Lennon: Celtic boss looking forward to trophy presentation

The Hoops will be presented with the Scottish Premier League trophy ahead of the Parkhead fixture.

Lennon won the title five times during his playing days at Celtic, and has now added two championships in charge of the team.

He said: "The titles always get better because the next one is the most important one. My first title (in 2001) will always be special, but to have back-to-back titles as manager is great.

"There are not many who get the opportunity to manage Celtic and there are not many who have won titles, so to have two is a great privilege.

"It means more as a manager because of all the preparation. You're bringing the players in, developing them and being there for all the games.

"As the captain, I did that twice with great pride, and those were very good moments as well, but I think you take more personal satisfaction when the players win the championship for you and in the way that they do it.

"We've had a great season, on and off the field, and the progression we've made over the past three years has been very pleasing."

Lennon's men are going for their 12th consecutive home win in the SPL, and the manager has more or less a full squad to choose from.

"Everyone's back," he said. "The guys we wanted to have a break have had their break so it's been intensive training this week and we'll go really strong for the game on Saturday and hopefully we can celebrate with a great performance."

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.
