Ex-Celtic manager Neil Lennon has compared the feeling of putting one over Rangers at the weekend to how he felt when he guided the Hoops to victory over Barcelona back in 2012.

Lennon’s side clung on for a win in the Champions League against the Spanish giants and after Saturday’s triumph for Hibernian in the Scottish Premier League over the Gers, the Northern Ireland native admitted it was amongst the best results in his career as a manager.

“That’s right up there for me in my managerial career, next to Barcelona under the circumstances with the injuries,” said the former Bhoys boss in The Scottish Sun.

“I have Paul Hanlon out, Darren McGregor out, Steven Whittaker out, David Gray out then we lose Brandon Barker.

“So I have got Lewis Stevenson, who is a left-back playing at centre-half, I have John McGinn playing left wing-back and Martin Boyle playing right wing-back.

It was a disappointing afternoon for Rangers all round as the Hibbies got one over the Glasgow giants at Ibrox despite a number of injuries to key players.

Even a return to the starting line-up for Alfredo Morelos could not prevent the Gers from succumbing to their seventh defeat of the season, (their fifth at home), which led to calls from new winter transfer window signing Jamie Murphy to make Ibrox a fortress.

Morelos meanwhile came back into the side after the Light Blues manager Graeme Murty had kept his Colombian forward on the bench following multiple bids from China, stating that the player had been left ‘confused’ by the speculation.

Rangers have a chance to bounce back to winning ways against Partick Thistle on Tuesday which will keep up pressure on Aberdeen who are second place in the SPL.
