Neil Lennon refused to criticise his players despite Celtic throwing away a two-goal lead in the final minutes of a pulsating Clydesdale Bank Premier League clash with Dundee United at Tannadice.

The Hoops looked to be cruising with 10 minutes to go after Tony Watt had doubled the lead given to them by substitute Miku. However, in the final minute of normal time United substitute Gary Mackay-Steven pulled one back before Hoops substitute Efe Ambrose put a Barry Douglas cross past goalkeeper Fraser Forster in injury time.

However, the Parkhead boss was in forgiving mood, saying: "It is very frustrating because we were so good. We were excellent, the level of performance was very high. Our play in general was very good, so in terms of play and chances created, everything was there."
