'They're a class above' - Neil Lennon makes honest admission about Celtic

Neil Lennon has admitted that his Hibernian side or any other Scottish Premiership team won’t catch Celtic this season.

The former Bhoys boss has held his old club to two draws in the Scottish Premiership, the most recent a 2-2 draw at Easter Road where Celtic threw away a two goal lead.

A late Callum McGregor equaliser was required to preserve Celtic’s long unbeaten run when the sides drew 2-2 at Parkhead in September.

Lennon’s side also ran the Hoops close in the Betfred Cup this season, a late Moussa Dembele goal needed to clinch a 4-2 win for the Celts.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Lennon was honest enough to reveal that he believes that Celtic will win the title this season, to make it seven leagues won in a row.

“I’ve no thoughts about anyone catching Celtic.”

The Hoops are currently five points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table, and they also have a game in hand –  which is against bottom of the league Partick Thistle – over nearest challengers Rangers and Aberdeen.

The Bhoys’ next league match is against Hamilton, during a busy December schedule that will decide the title race.

As well as an upcoming trip to Tynecastle to play Hearts, the Hoops also have home matches with Aberdeen and Rangers before the winter break.
