‘We’ll be all out to do that,’ Neil Lennon targets push for 10IAR

NEIL LENNON has spoken about the club’s latest title as Celtic won 9IAR following confirmation from the SPFL yesterday. Speaking to Sky Sports, the manager confirmed that with nine wrapped up, he would set his sights on winning the magical 10IAR.

Celtic were 13 points clear when the league was curtailed due to the global pandemic and in these unprecedented circumstances, the supporters have had to concede the celebrations of a record equalling 9IAR.

Celtic are due back on June 10 and the manager is already talking about pushing for the historic 10IAR.

“I can now safely say we can go for the ten. I’ve been sitting on that for quite a while and been thinking about it all during the season.

“When I got the job this time last year the fans were talking about ten but we had to get the nine first. We’ve achieved that now and now we can go for ten which I can’t believe I’m saying.

“I remember in 2011 when we lost the league and saying this is just the beginning of something special. Well, I couldn’t envisage how special it was going to be and I have to pay tribute to Brendan Rodgers and Ronny Deila who played a huge part in the success of the club along the way as well.

“I’m sure they can take a huge amount of pride in what the club has achieved since they have left. Going for the ten; it’s historic, it’s momentous and we’ll be all out to do that.”

Lennon was the manager at the club when the first of the nine was won back in 2012. With three-in-a-row wrapped up Lennon left for pastures new but fast forward four years and the Irishman was back at Celtic Park. Last season, Lennon stepped into the role following Rodgers’ departure to Leicester and secured the Treble Treble.

Now, the manager is on the cusp of immortality with 10IAR just one campaign away.

The manager deserves an enormous amount of credit for his relentless mentality that pushed Celtic ahead in the league, following a defeat before New Years to Rangers. The tactical switch to 3-5-2 paid dividends and now, the club can look forward to next season.

Meanwhile Chris Sutton had made a good point…
