Celtic manager Neil Lennon has explained that he was delighted with his side’s performance in their 4-0 rout of St. Mirren in the Scottish Premiership yesterday.
The Hoops started the match brightly but were unable to find the back of the net in the first-half, despite dominating proceedings.
However, things changed drastically after the break at St. Mirren Park as Charlie Mulgrew broke the deadlock in the 53rd minute before Anthony Stokes doubled Celtic’s advantage just five minutes later.
Kris Commons then scored a quickfire brace, which made sure of the full three points for the Scottish champions as they consolidated first place in the league standings with 54 points from 20 games.
And Lennon revealed that he “couldn’t have asked anything more” from Celtic following their all-round superb display throughout the course of the game against St. Mirren.
“I thought we were exceptional from start to finish and we could have been two-up but for the inside of the post”, the manager told his club’s official site.
“We felt at half-time that if we got one goal we’d go on to dominate the game and that’s exactly how it panned out.
“It was a magnificent team-performance and another clean sheet so I can’t ask any more of them and they’re doing the club really proud at the minute.”
