Lennon still wary of Rangers threat


Celtic manager Neil Lennon wants his players to enjoy their return to the top of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League but warned them not to write off Rangers.

Joe Ledley's second-half winner in the Old Firm game at Parkhead on Wednesday night saw the Hoops leapfrog their city rivals by two points at the top of the table. Celtic's ninth SPL victory in a row completed a remarkable turnaround for the home side, who were 15 points behind the champions on November 5, albeit with two games in hand.

"I think we have come a long way in a short space of time. But Rangers are a top team and have been for a few years. They have a great mentality, so we have to be very wary," Lennon told the Evening Times.
