Lennon comforted after Celtic's narrow win

Celtic manager Neil Lennon admitted to being relieved after his side overcame Aberdeen 1-0 at Pittodri Stadium yesterday.

The Hoops struggled to create chances throughout the match except for when Anthony Stokes finished a good piece of play by Kris Commons in the 74th minute and Lennon said that it was comforting to come away with win despite not being at their best.

"We made it nervous for ourselves because we had so many chances and our decision-making on the final bit was poor," he said.

"We worked the ball great, kept getting in between their midfield and back four and then we tried to walk the ball in the net at times.

"It's a bad habit to have and we have to get out of it. I said at half-time we needed to be patient, we would take 1-0 and that happened to be the case.

"But I felt our play deserved better, overall we were very, very good."

Celtic sit second on the Scottish Premier League, behind Motherwell, with two wins from their opening two matches ahead of this Saturday's home clash with third-placed Dundee United.
