Danny Lennon: St Mirren boss is looking for concentration against Celtic

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."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
