Will try to capitalise if hosts lose cool again
Celtic players, who clinched t h e i r e i g h t h s u c c e s s i v e Ladbrokes Premiership title last week with a 3- 0 win at Aberdeen, have had t heir usual pre - Old Firm match visit from the police but insists there is nothing to concern him.
The former Celtic skipper and manager said: “The normal rules will apply. My players’ conduct has been impeccable.
“I have no i ssue with t he police coming in and routinely telling them what is required. I have every confidence in the discipline of the team.”
Celtic go into the game nine points ahead of their bitter rivals, who won 1- 0 when the teams met at Ibrox at the end of last year.
However, Lennon, whose side still have the chance to scoop an unprecedented triple treble this season, does not believe the outcome will have any relevance to next season’s title battle.
Lennon, put in charge until the end of the season in February after Brendan Rodgers left suddenly for Leicester, said: “If we lose on Sunday it won’t have any bearing on the championship next season at all and if we win it won’t have any bearing.
“It is two big teams going at it with pride and for three points more than anything else.
“There is no trophy at stake but it is the next Celtic versus Rangers episode and it is the most important one because it is the next one.”
