Neil Lennon: Targets swift title party for Hoops

The Hoops lost 2-1 to Aberdeen on Tuesday, ending their 26-game unbeaten start to the campaign and their 13-match run without conceding a goal.

But Lennon insists the players should be praised for their efforts rather than the negative reaction which greeted their defeat at Pittodrie.

Speaking ahead of Saturday's home match against Inverness, the Celtic manager, whose side boast a 21-point lead atop the table, said: "We move on.

"Twenty six games shows excellent consistency and in those games there were 12 or 13 clean sheets which was remarkable.

"I think the achievement should be applauded rather than taken for granted and the players can be very proud of it.

"There are 11 games to go so another four could see us win the title and we want to do that as quickly as possible.

"Then it will be a case of blooding some younger players as the season goes on before looking ahead to next season."

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
