Neil Lennon predicts a Celtic hiding for one unlucky opponent soon

Neil Lennon reckons Celtic are due a big victory against one of the team’s upcoming opponents.

The Bhoys looked much more like their old selves against Ross County on Wednesday night, creating a number of chances to win more comfortably than 2-0.

David Turnbull and Leigh Griffiths found themselves on the scoresheet.

Others such as Odsonne Edouard are still to truly hit a rich vein of form this season.

Slowly but surely the team the threatening to hit top gear.

The Celtic boss reckons someone will be on the end of a hiding if his men keep this up.

As quoted by The Times, Lennon said: “I’m pleased with the quality of chances we created. If we keep playing like that, we’re going to give somebody a right good going over. It was a clean sheet and we didn’t look in any trouble. We seem to be going in the right direction again.

“We got a lift from the weekend win and that pressure and anxiety has gone. We are looking forward to the league games now and it’s good to get a win to start the Christmas period. There is a feelgood factor. We just want to keep the squad bubbling over now.”

Toothless Celtic

Celtic haven’t won a game by three or more goals since the 4-1 victory over Motherwell at the start of November.

The Bhoys haven’t truly thrashed a team since the 5-0 win away to Ross County way back in September.

With rivals Rangers racking up big win after big win, we need to start winning more convincingly and attempting to close the goal difference gap, at the same time as the points one.

Edouard, for example, hasn’t scored from open play in the Scottish Premiership since the opening day of the season against Hamilton.

Now paired with Leigh Griffiths again, can he be one of the attackers to hit the goal trail against Accies or Dundee United in our next two matches?

That’s what I want for Christmas!
