Ibrox ti­tle won’t take bis­cuit for Len­non

CELTIC v DUNFERMLINE Thurs­day, 7.45pm

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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.

Co­in­ci­den­tal

“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
