Lennon admits Celtic are ‘fatigued’ following weekend draw with Aberdeen

Neil Lennon admits Celtic are ‘fatigued’ following their goalless draw with Aberdeen on Saturday.

Celtic missed the opportunity to stretch their lead at the top to 10 points following Rangers‘ 1-1 draw with Hibernian on Friday night, and Lennon admits the champions looked tired after playing three games in 10 days.

“We were far too pedestrian with the ball,” Lennon told BBC Scotland.

“We looked leggy, little bit fatigued, and I understand that. Psychologically, they’re a little bit fatigued, too, after everything that’s happened. There was always going to be a lull and hopefully that’s over now.

“If you can’t win it, don’t lose it, and it’s a point going forward. That’s three really difficult games in 10 days and we have come out unscathed. The gap is still eight points so we move on.”

Celtic’s next fixture is an away trip to face struggling Dundee, before facing Rangers in the Old Firm derby after the international break.
