Celtic boss Lennon: Important Old Firm rivalry continues

Celtic boss Neil Lennon feels the Scottish game would be poorer without the direct rivalry of Rangers. A deal to sell the debt-laden Ibrox club has been signed with a consortium fronted by former Sheffield United chief executive, but there is still uncertainty surrounding the arrangement.

"Celtic v Rangers is a great selling point for the Scottish game," said Lennon, who was in London today as Celtic donated £50,000 to sponsor a room in Paul's House, the CLIC Sargent Home from Home, near University College Hospital.

"If you look at last two derbies, they were fantastic occasions, with the colour, the energy and the intensity of the games, just the all-round atmosphere.

"It is a great rivalry and it is important that it stays there."
