Ibrox title won’t take biscuit for Lennon
CELTIC v DUNFERMLINE Thursday, 7.45pm
CELTIC boss Neil Lennon insists an SPL title win at Ibrox would be “just the way the cookie crumbles” – but he would rather clinch the trophy at home.
The Hoops can go 20 points clear of Rangers with victory over Dunfermline on Thursday and the SPL and Strathclyde Police fear the title could be clinched at Rangers on March 25.
Asked about the possibility of winning the trophy at the home of their bitter rivals next month, Lennon said: “That’s just the way the cookie crumbles.
“We are not getting ahead of ourselves. We can drop points along the way, Rangers can drop points along the way – I don’t know.
“But if that’s where we are on March 25 we will approach the game and try to win it.
“It’s not up to me to make the decision to move the fixture, but I don’t see the reason why the fixture should be changed.
“It’s just the way the season has progressed and maybe coincidental that it could be an opportunity for us to win the title there.
“But I would much rather win it here at Celtic Park.”
Three points against the Pars will be Celtic’s 13th consecutive win in all competitions – equalling the mark of Martin O’neill’s side of 2004.
But Lennon added: “These numbers mean nothing.
“Performances and results mean everything, the records don’t mean a great deal.”
HOME HOPE: Lennon
