It is not that often that Celtic go two league games in a row without victory in the Scottish Premiership. However, that is what has happened to Neil Lennon’s side.

After winning the first six league games in a row, the Hoops have drawn 1-1 with Hibs, and lost 2-0 to Livingston. As a result, Celtic now sit in second place in the Premiership table.

Home form has been excellent so far

The Hoops home form does not seem to be a concern, as the team have won all three of their league games at home so far.


However, Celtic’s away form could be a bit of a concern after a good start. The Hoops won the first three away games in the league this season, but the poor results against Hibs and Livingston have to be a concern.

Thankfully then, Celtic’s first league game after the international break is at home to Ross County, where the Hoops will be looking to get back to winning ways.

Neil Lennon and all at the club will be hoping that Celtic win against the Dingwall side for a number of reasons. To put pressure on Rangers is one, as is keeping up the 100% record at home.


Must avoid equalling sequence in Lennon’s first spell

Another reason though, and perhaps one not discussed is that the Hoops will want to avoid equalling a poor set of results from nine years ago. Ironically enough, in Lennon’s first season as Hoops manager.

In 2010, it was home games that were the issues, as Celtic played three league games in a row all at home – and failed to win any of them.

The Hoops drew 1-1 with Dundee United, 2-2 with Inverness and 1-1 with Kilmarnock. That sequence of results was perhaps a contributing factor to the Hoops not winning the league that season.

That was the last time Celtic went three league games in a row without a win.

Celtic will not want a repeat of that sequence when they take on Ross County. Three league games in a row without a win would be a cause for concern for the Hoops.

Hopefully the side bounce back to winning ways against the Dingwall side and get back on track.
