Lennon's team go into the match as underdogs with Celtic arriving at St Mirren Park undefeated in 23 league games and seeking a ninth successive Scottish Premiership victory.

St Mirren are hoping to bounce back from Thursday's 2-1 defeat against Kilmarnock.

But the Buddies manager believes his side have a chance if they show the same belief that led to them knocking Celtic out of last season's League Cup at Hampden.

"We showed last year in the League Cup semi-final that we can compete with Celtic and we can beat them," Lennon said.

"If you want to beat the best then you need to know what their strengths are. We certainly know they have strength all over the pitch.

"But what we have to do is make sure we are 100 per cent focused right throughout. We didn't do that on Thursday and we were punished.

"It was very frustrating for us because I felt we deserved more for our efforts. We put a lot into that game but suffered from one mistake.

"We know Celtic have that type of quality all over the pitch, so we need everyone to be focused for the full 90 minutes plus."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
