Neil Lennon returned to Easter Road today after only leaving the club a month ago. Asked pre-match if there were any advantages to known the Hibs set up and players, Lennon said yes.
Clearly, he was correct, Lennon did what Rodgers never managed, a win at Easter Road. Celtic made hard work of it and about seventy minutes of their play could be described as sloppy. The game only had two good talking points. One was a cracking goal by James Forrest, the other was a cracker from Scott Brown.
Celtic could have probably had another goal or two but in general, they gave the ball away far too easy and far too often. The main thing is Celtic book their place in the hat for the next round. The Treble Treble has moved a step closer.
One of the biggest talking points, unfortunately, was of objects been thrown onto the pitch. Scott Sinclair was very close to getting hit by a glass bottle. Other objects were thrown any time corners or throws were getting taking by Celtic players. Celtic fans have been guilty of this in the last few weeks and something needs to be done about it before screens or caging starts getting talked about.
