Neil Lennon makes shock claim about Celtic at top of Scottish Premiership

By John Reid

Neil Lennon has claimed that Hibs, and not Celtic, should be at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.

Despite the fact that his side are currently in third place and four points behind the league leaders, the Hibs manager believes that his side are better than that.

Talking to the Daily Record, Lennon said “We should have won at Dundee earlier in the season, we should have won at St Johnstone and we were 2-0 up against Motherwell.

“That’s six points dropped and if we had not dropped them we would be top of the table.”

Celtic and Hibs have played twice this season, with the sides drawing 2-2 at Celtic Park in September and Celtic defeating Hibs 4-2 in the Betfred Cup Semi-Final.

The teams next meet at Easter Road on December the 10th.

Football Insider opinion: Whilst Hibs are undoubtedly in a good run of form, it is outlandish from Neil Lennon to claim that they should be top of the league. If we go by Lennon’s logic, then Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers could justifiably claim that the Hoops should be seven points clear at the top of the league if they hadn’t dropped points against St Johnstone and Kilmarnock. Lennon’s comments should at least add some intrigue to the match between Hibs and Celtic at Easter Road next month.
