NEIL LENNON was not in the mood to suffer silly questions on TalksSport when he asked about how the season played out.
The Celtic manager has probably been asked about this quite a lot in the past month but now the bhoys are champions, he made his views clear on Celtic’s title win.
Asked if there was any sympathy for his rivals over the season being cut short, the Irishman was very honest.
“I don’t have any sympathy at all really.” Lennon told Talksport as cited by SunSport. “I doubt very much any right-minded person would have envisaged Rangers catching us.
“Not only were we 13 points clear but we had a 25 goal difference as well, so you could easily say we were 14 points clear.
“The only sympathy I have is for my players in terms of they never got the chance to play out the season.
“They were also in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup as well and they were going for a fourth Treble.
“In terms of the league championship, it was only going – in our minds – to one place and we were planning ahead for that eventuality.”
He’s absolutely spot on, but these are the arguments which will fall on deaf ears with the usual suspects.
For Celtic as a whole, Monday was a momentum day in our history. We have matched our own record set by Jock Stein’s famous team.
Celtic will now get the chance to go one better next season, whenever that might be.
It’s good to reflect on how outstanding the team has been all season. People talk about the second half of the season but the bhoys were relentless throughout. After the winter break we showed why we were champions.
