on Sunday.


have won only two of their last 11 games in all competitions and by contrast, St. Johnstone have not been defeated in their last 10 games.

“They are on a decent run. Callum Davidson has come in off the back of Tommy (Wright) being there for so long but he knows the club inside out, he knows the players inside out,” Lennon said.

“They are always a stodgy opposition to play against and they may feel we are a little bit vulnerable at the minute.

“It doesn’t matter who are we are playing, it is important we try and end this run of draws and defeats as quickly as possible.”

Celtic are out of the

Europa League

and the Betfred Cup after their disappointing 2-0 loss to Ross County last weekend.

Lennon believes games without fans are difficult as players need to self-motivate during the game.

“More than ever players have to motivate themselves and we do our best as a backroom team to motivate the players as best we can,” he added.

“There has been a lot of support for me from the players, a lot of soul-searching from themselves over the past couple of days and I thought they were tremendous at times on Thursday night.

“I got the response – I didn’t get the result – but I certainly got the response I was looking for.”
