Rangers have a ‘huge disciplinary problem,’ Lenny States the Obvious

NEIL LENNON today. stated the obvious – Rangers don’t just have a disciplinary problem they’ve got a HUGE one and there will now be foaming at the mouth as a result of this particular Celtic manager telling them how it actually is.

Steven Gerrard from his very first game up at Aberdeen has been unable to man manage his squad and he has presided over a season where his players have picked up an incredible TWELVE red cards and has just learned that the angriest man in Scotland – Alan McGregor – will be suspended for the remaining two games of this season and for the first game next time around as Celtic set off on the road to 9IAR.

“It’s not my problem that they have a huge disciplinary problem and if it manifests itself again on Sunday then we will try to take advantage,” Lenny said at the media conference at Lennoxtown today.

“Yes, they did (target Scott Brown) and they did after the game as well.

“Scott Brown’s a veteran of these games, he has been here 12 years he has played over 500 games. I don’t need to tell Scott Brown how to manage himself through a game of football, he does it very well and the bigger the game the more he enjoys it.

“Scott Brown is always important. It is a big game and he is a big-game player. It is very easy to say Scott Brown will be playing on Sunday.

“We are the champions and we have to play and act like champions.

“The normal rules will apply. My players’ conduct has been impeccable. I have no issue with the police coming in and routinely telling them what is required. I have every confidence in the discipline of the team.”

Lenny also dismissed any notion that the title battle for next season begins on Sunday. It doesn’t that kicks off next season.

“If we lose on Sunday it won’t have any bearing on the championship next season at all and if we win it won’t have any bearing.

“It is two big teams going at it with pride and for three points more than anything else. There is no trophy at stake but it is the next Celtic versus Rangers episode and it is the most important one because it is the next one.”
