NEIL LENNON has been speaking ahead of Celtic’s tie with Ross County on Saturday as the bhoys get back to SPFL action.
The Celtic manager is looking forward to getting his side back onto the field where he will hope to leap frog Steven Gerrard’s men into first place come the final whistle.
With players out on international duty there’s always a chance some will come back with a few niggles which could present a problem for the squad as a whole. Fortunately, Neil has ALMOST gave his squad the all clear.
Speaking to CelticTV, the Parkhead boss gave Celtic fans an update on the current state of play.
“Looking forward to it. Everyone has come back in good spirits
“The only doubt we have is Olivier, he will need to be assessed before tomorrow
“Elhamed had a virus in between the two games but should be fine for tomorrow”
The Celtic manager didn’t want to dwell on Celtic’s last game against Livingston and put it down to one of those days.
“I think it just didn’t go for us on the day
“The sending off was something that came out of the blue, something out of character from Ryan
“Then we conceded a goal early in the second half, then we forced the issue and it didn’t work.
“Over the piece we’ve been brilliant
But the facts are – we’ve only got one point out of the last six and we hope to rectify that tomorrow.”
Celtic are two points behind in the title race and will have to make home advantage count over the next few games as they look to re-assert their dominance.
