Celtic boss Lennon no fan of Old Firm games

Neil Lennon has revealed the agonies of being the Celtic boss in an Old Firm game after a comfortable 3-0 success over Rangers in what could be the last league meeting for several years, if administration-hit Gers drop out of the SPL. "As a player you would miss them terribly," said Lennon. "As a manager they are horrible. Honestly.

"Even yesterday, there was no real pressure on the game but you are always apprehensive going into it.

"They were three brilliant goals but I am thinking 'I don't want Rangers to score and get back into the game' and everybody else is thinking four or five.

"In the fall-out, you boys [the media] will be saying that I got my tactics bang on, my team were up for it and all that nonsense.

"I couldn't ask any more from the team. We played well but I don't buy into the tactical stuff, I got one over him and he got one over me.

"We just won the game and I am thrilled with that.

"But I don't want to see the back of them [Old Firm games], it really whets the appetite."
