Lennon: Hoops have a taste for trophies

Published Add your comment

Neil Lennon believes his Celtic players will still be savouring the taste of league title success when they tackle Hearts at Hampden on Sunday in their William Hill Scottish Cup semi-final.

The cup holders clinched the Clydesdale Bank Premier League championship last Saturday in fine style with a 6-0 win over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.

Manager Lennon insists securing the title for the first time in four years will fire up his players as they look to win the double, and said: "You get a taste for it. The players would have woken up on Sunday morning with a huge smile on their face and, I'm sure, with immense satisfaction with what they have achieved. And then you go again. You want more once you taste it."
