Celtic are currently on an excellent run of six league wins in a row, but Neil Lennon doesn’t expect the run to last forever, reports the Scottish Sun.

The Hoops’ run of form has allowed them to open up a 10 point gap over Rangers. However, just like in the first-half of the season, Lennon doesn’t expect the team to win every game.

“It will be the same”

“There’s going to be a bump in the road here and there. I said that in the first half of the season. It will be the same in the second half of the season as well. The bigger the gap, the happier we will be” Lennon said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.

It is perhaps a tad unrealistic to expect Celtic to win their last 12 league games of the season. Lennon is correct to point that out. The chances are the Hoops will drop points.

Team has bounced back well from league setbacks

However, if the team does drop points, you would expect them to bounce back in style, as that has been the case this season.

So far in the 2019-20 Premiership campaign, Celtic have dropped points in three games. Two of the games were in successive weeks, the 1-1 draw with Hibs, and the 2-0 loss to Livingston.

Following the loss to Livingston, the Hoops won the next 11 league games in a row. A similar pattern has followed the 2-1 loss to Rangers in December, the team has won six league games in a row since.

It does seem inevitable, especially with the team set to play in Europe again next week, that Celtic will drop points in the league.

However, the reaction from the team to dropping any points this season has been so spectacularly good that it shouldn’t be a concern to the Hoops support when it does eventually happen.
