“It’s a tough game” Celtic boss Neil Lennon said ahead of Livingston battle

Celtic boss Neil Lennon admits their next match at Livingston will be a tough task for his side but he is sure his players are fully prepared for the task, as per FourFourTwo.

Last time the Bhoys travelled to the Almondvale Stadium, they suffered a 2-0 loss with Robinson and Dykes both getting on the scoresheet.

However, they took good revenge of that defeat in the return fixture at Celtic Park where they struck four unanswered goals to register an emphatic 4-0 victory.

The 48-year-old Irish manager told the media:

“It’s a tough game. There is no question.

“Their home form is excellent and they are a big, strong team. They can play three at the back or four at the back. We are under no illusions how difficult it is going to be. It’s going to be a very tough game and not for the faint-hearted.

“They can be direct, they have good energy, they are a threat at set-plays and they do it very well. We have to overcome that and match whatever they throw at us, and then better it.

“We have got to be at our best and focused and concentrated, and we have to be physically strong as well.”

Celtic have responded well after their Europa League exit by winning against St. Johnstone in the Scottish Cup quarter-finals.

Now they will hope to get a better result at Livingston who are enjoying a great home record this season.

The Hoops are well placed to win their ninth consecutive league title with Lennon’s side currently 12 points clear at the top of the table.
