Neil Lennon: Touchline ban kept him in the stands for Inverness game

The manager had called on supporters to come and party in Parkhead as his side chased the point required for a 44th Scottish championship.

And a packed Celtic Park duly obliged as the Hoops shook off the torpor of a drab opening period to rattle in four second-half goals and win 4-1.

"The supporters are just unique in world football," said Lennon, whose touchline ban left him celebrating a second title as manager from the stands. "They give the players an extra step, they inspire the team.

"Winning the league is a very special moment, I want the players to enjoy it.

"We were okay in the first half, second half we really came through. It's a great way to win the championship. While I'm here I want to win things and winning the championship is always very special.

"It's a privilege to manage this club and to win this championship again, I'm so proud for the players and the fans - they're the people who make this club what it is."
