There is no beef between Commons and I - Celtic's Lennon

Neil Lennon insists there is no bad blood between he and Kris Commons after the midfielder publicly questioned his omission from the Celtic team.

The former Derby County man used his Twitter page to query why he was not selected for Sunday's Old Firm derby with Rangers, which the Hoops ultimately lost 4-2, but Lennon indicated there was no problem and will not make a mountain out of a molehill.

"He said he was fit but he didn't train on Saturday and said he had a tight groin and I didn't want to take that chance with him," said Lennon.

"I would have preferred it to be kept in-house but this is the modern age and social networking seems to be the way forward.

"He's obviously frustrated that he was left out of the squad and I accept that but I'm not going to make a big issue of it."
