NEIL LENNON was doing his pre-match press conference on Friday ahead of Celtic’s semi-final tie with Aberdeen but made a request as he sat down to speak to the media.

The Irishman was sat next to the Scottish Cup trophy for the conference and the superstitious manager asked for the trophy to be taken out the room.

Many footballers have been superstitious with trophies over the years with players and managers refusing to touch the silverware when doing media duties before finals and semi-finals.

Lennon obviously didn’t want the trophy in his line of vision as he discussed the club’s chances for a triple treble.

The interim manager could be the man who managed to get the Celtic squad over the line to make history, something that may not be repeated if it happens.

Speaking to Celtic TV, the manager could not say enough positive things about his team and what they’ve accomplished over the past two and a half years.

“I thought the going the season unbeaten and winning the treble was something I’d never see again.

“I thought the double Treble was good.

“Now they’ve done two and they’re on the cusp of a third.

“It’s fantastic for what they’ve done for the domestic game.”
