Lennon praises 'exceptional' Celtic

Neil Lennon feels his Celtic side played exceptionally the last time they stepped out in the Scottish Premiership.

The league champions defeated Dundee United 2-0 at Tannadice Park on April 5 thanks to goals from Georgios Samaras and Anthony Stokes and the performance of the Bhoys players really thrilled their proud boss.

"I was more than delighted with that performance against a good Dundee United team," he told the Celtic View.

"It was wonderful from start to finish. The football we played was exceptional at times. We scored two great goals, and if Kris had scored in the second half it probably would be goal of the season because of the build-up play.

"It was a very good all-round team performance, exhibition stuff in the end. The players really enjoyed it and our supporters were brilliant."

Celtic next take on third-placed Motherwell in the first fixture of the post-split part of the 2013/14 Scottish season at Fir Park this Saturday.
