Caretaker manager Neil Lennon enjoyed his first Old Firm match in charge of Celtic with a 2-1 win over arch rivals Rangers. Although the young tactician admits he didn’t enjoy the game, and that he was relieved for it to be over, he was also quick to praise his players.

"It was a great performance from the team, I’m really proud of them and they did everything we asked them to do,” Lennon said after the derby match. “It’s a good night for the club. It’s important to win your Old Firm games. Over the piece, we deserved to win it."

The win does nothing but good for the young manager, who is desperate to hold on to the Celtic job. It is believed former Valencia boss Ronald Koeman is being linked with a move to replace the interim coach.
