Neil Lennon: ‘We need to win the games in hand and take it from there’

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has said that they need to win the games in hand and ‘take it from there’ following their 1-0 loss against Rangers.

Although

Celtic

dominated the game on Saturday, they were not able to find a way past

Rangers

goalkeeper Allan McGregor.

In the 62nd minute, the game turned as Celtic defender Nir Bitton was sent off because of grabbing Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos.

Celtic skipper Callum McGregor then scored an own goal and left his side 19 points clear of Rangers.

It was a frustrating conclusion to the game for

Neil Lennon

and he said that they need to win the games in hand and ‘take it from there’

“We need to win the games in hand and take it from there,” Lennon said.

“We just need to win every game from here on in as best we can.

“I am just frustrated that we maybe shot ourselves in the foot a bit in just one moment.

“Jeremie Frimpong, David Turnbull, Ryan Christie, and Callum McGregor were all outstanding for the first hour then we had to rejig things.

“But overall I am really proud of the players.

“They played very well. We have a lot of football to play but we have to play really well and stay on it from now to the end of the season.”
