Celtic: Fans were delighted with Neil Lennon’s comments after derby win at Ibrox

Celtic manager Neil Lennon spoke out about the pre-match coverage of the Glasgow derby during his post-match press duties yesterday.

Speaking after his team’s 2-o victory at Ibrox, Lennon hailed the Hoops’ “perfect performance” and felt that his team were being dismissed as “an afterthought” prior to the game.

Clyde 1 Superscoreboard (@ClydeSSB) posted an audio clip on Twitter of the Celtic manager’s comments after the derby.

Lennon said: “It was the perfect performance from start to finish. We were outstanding. We were an afterthought coming into this fixture. I was an afterthought. My board were an afterthought. It was all about the opposition and what they were going to do to us. We didn’t listen to any of you.” [via @ClydeSSB]

He also claimed that one media outlet featured only Rangers manager Steven Gerrard and not him in their promotional advertisement for the game. [via @ClydeSSB]

Yesterday was the 21st time that Lennon has faced Rangers as a manager and he now has 10 wins to his name against the Ibrox club, eight of which have come with Celtic in Glasgow derbies. [via TransferMarkt.co.uk]
