A Robbie Keane penalty ensured Celtic caretaker boss Neil Lennon's winning start continued with a 1-0 victory over Hibernian at Easter Road.

Keane's 12th goal in 12 games since arriving on loan from Tottenham in January saw the Hoops move back to within ten points of leaders Rangers.

Lennon paid tribute to his side's character after the narrow win.

He said: "I am more pleased today than I was last week.

I asked them at half-time, 'can you see it through now? Can you go and get a goal and maybe another one and win the game?' And they did it.

"And without being brilliant, I am pleased with the character my team showed today and the ability to grind out a result.

"My back four and midfield two were outstanding when they had to be and we had to rely on the goalkeeper (stand-in Lukasz Zaluska) but that is what he is paid for.

"We dominated the second half at times and I would like us to create more chances but we are two games in.

"Possibly we could have drawn or lost that game earlier in the season."
