Neil Lennon says Celtic proved a point to their critics in emphatic win over St Mirren


NEIL LENNON said that Celtic had proved a point to their critics after putting four past St Mirren last night in an impressive showing in Paisley.

An early strike from Tom Rogic and a late flurry of goals from Odsonne Edouard, Ryan Christie and David Turnbull gave the visitors their second 4-0 away win in succession, and their third win in a row all told.

Lennon was thrilled by the attacking performance of his men, and said that they had proven just how good as side they are.

“That was far more like us tonight, so you’re scratching your head wondering where that has been all season,” Lennon said.

“We know that we’ve got more or less a clean bill of health at the moment, the players are playing better and we looked really strong. The second half was the best we’ve played in quite a while in terms of control, penetration, and a real desire to score goals.

“It’s a great win and it’s probably the best we’ve played here for some time. We could have won the game by more.

“I wasn’t particularly pleased with our first half, we gave the ball away a lot under no pressure.

“I had a few words with them at half-time and second half I thought we were magnificent.

“Everything about the team was brilliant, I just really enjoyed watching them, play.

“Rogic was outstanding the whole way through the game, and in the second half I was delighted with the whole team. It was a brilliant win.

“We missed a few good chances before the penalty, I thought we deserved to be well ahead by then.

“Once we go the second goal we really turned it on and you could see the confidence oozing out of the team. They were superb.

“They deserve a lot of credit for the way they played, so the point has been proven, alright?”
