Lennon happy to watch Celtic from the stands more often

Celtic manager Neil Lennon says he is happy to watch his team from the stands a lot more after experiencing it on a number of occasions this season.

The Hoops has received a couple of touchlines bans this campaign, forcing him to watch his side from a higher vantage point, but he insists it has helped him get a better overview of his players.

"I can see myself possibly watching more games from the stand next season. It gives you a real overview of the game, the shape of the team and the opposition," he said.

"That may be something I will take on board for next season.

"I've thought about it before because I have seen other managers doing it. I remember Jim Magilton doing it at Ipswich and Walter Smith did it at Rangers in his last couple of years.

"Sitting in the stand, you can take an emotional step back and dissect the game more coolly."
