The Hoops are looking to extend their unbeaten league run to 23 matches when they travel to St Mirren Park.

Although Lennon thought Celtic appeared jaded in Wednesday's 1-0 victory over Partick, he expects the extra day of rest to benefit the visitors as St Mirren did not play until Thursday.

"There was definitely a tiredness creeping into the team in the second half against Partick," said Lennon.

"I just want us to play with a little more zest.

"We have had a heavy schedule of games recently but we have had an extra day (over St Mirren) to recover from the Thistle game.

"So hopefully we will see a wee bit more energy in the team. That is what I am looking for."

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.........

eing consistently and unrelentingly dog turd really takes it out of you. Try shadow boxing. That's what it's like watching Liverpool, punching thin air.

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.
