Lennon pleased with overall Celtic performance in five-goal Dundee show

Neil Lennon was pleased with a number of aspects as Celtic jumped to a 21-point lead over the remainder of the Scottish Premier League.

The Hoops brushed aside ten-man Dundee 5-0 on Sunday after the Dees had manager Barry Smith sacked last week and although it was a slow start, Lennon was happy to see stand-in skipper Joe Ledley score a double along with goals from James Forrest, youngster Dylan McGeouch and star striker Gary Hooper.

"We weren't great in the first half but in the second half we were excellent and I am really pleased with the five goals,” said Lennon.

"That's 23 goals in the last five home games so we are really starting to turn it on at home.

"I was pleased with Dylan, it was a great goal and that was our fourth or fifth penalty in a row (we scored) which makes a nice change for us.

"Gary got his goal which puts him on 24 for the season, so I was delighted with the performance and the clean sheet.

"Ledley was great and deservedly got man of the match, he is a very important player and proved that over the years.

"He is talking about staying on here and I would like to do that if I could, he is a great player for us."
