Lennon: I am frustrated but will continue to support Celtic players

Celtic boss Lennon says he will keep defending his players if they are criticized by supporters.

The Bhoys manager had heated exchanges with fans during the weekend's 1-0 loss to Inverness Caledonian Thistle at Parkhead before offering up his job if the green and white faithful wanted his head.

Lennon admits he has been frustrated by his side's recent run of form in the league but says he will continue to back the squad if they come under fire from supporters.

"If the support are unhappy with what they see and voice their displeasure then we'll review the situation," he told Sky Sports News ahead of tomorrow night's meeting at Heart of Midlothian. "But that comes with results.

"We are not happy with our recent league form but we are progressing. We are still in all four competitions and are top of the league, albeit not playing as consistently as I'd like in the league.

"We have a really good game to get our teeth into tomorrow, so we just need a wee bit of patience.

"However, that is something you don't always get at big clubs and I understand that. Fans are allowed to voice their displeasure but at times I am allowed to voice mine as well.

"This is not something I want to do but if it's unjustified I will voice my opinion.

"I wasn't getting any stick personally, it was directed towards the team, but I was just defending them as they had given me everything."
