Celtic's league consistency lands Lennon manager's award

Celtic's Neil Lennon has been named the Scottish Premiership Manager of the Month for January.

The Hoops won all five of their league matches in the first month of 2014, scoring 16 goals and conceding none, landing Lennon the best manager award.

"This just shows the consistency the players have displayed all season and shows last week (cup defeat to Aberdeen) came out of left-field as the form we had been showing in the previous three months was red-hot," said Lennon.

"Now all we want to do is get back to winning ways on Sunday and continue in the same form that we have shown for 95 per cent of the season.

"The players were really disappointed after last week but we can't dwell on that. Too many didn't perform on the day but we move on and our aim now is to go unbeaten for the remainder of the season as I don't think that has been done before at the highest level here."

Celtic, who sit 21 points clear of second-placed Aberdeen, take on sixth-placed St Johnstone in their return to league action this Sunday
