Celtic boss Neil Lennon insists the club are not at fault over the rescinded penalty incident against Dundee United at Tannadice almost three weeks ago.

Referee Dougie McDonald was given a warning by the SFA's referees committee following an investigation into the incident which saw assistant Steven Craven quit refereeing.

In anticipation of the club issuing a statement, Lennon said: "I don't think we have done anything wrong and the players don't think they have done anything wrong either.

"All I have been doing is concentrating on the games. The club will make a statement and we will follow on after that.

"I have not mentioned it to the players at all. It is out of our hands at the moment.

"They are footballers who want to play football and win things and that has been our main focus in the last six months."

Asked if the issue would help foster a siege mentality at Parkhead, Lennon replied: "I hope so. We are trying to build that anyway and this is a back-handed way of doing it. But we will use it as a motivation for the players."
