Celtic legend Neil Lennon has questioned whether Philippe Clement’s Rangers have the bottle to challenge Brendan Rodgers’ side in the second half of the season. Rangers were gaining ground on Celtic before an impressive run of form before the winter break, including a 2-1 win for Celtic in the Glasgow Derby.
Speaking to PLZ Soccer, Lennon contended that Celtic have a hold over Rangers because of their ability to win big games.
🗣 ‘They haven’t got the mentality yet of the hold Celtic have over them – they need to break that if they’re going to win the league’
