Neil Lennon praises Virgil van Dijk's "individual brilliance"

Neil Lennon hails Virgil van Dijk's winning goal against St Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has praised the skill of Virgil van Dijk after the defender scored the winning goal against St Johnstone on Boxing Day.

The 22-year-old ran forward with the ball and beat a number of players before firing past goalkeeper Alan Mannus.

"If we'd dropped points we probably would not have been talking about Virgil's goal. So I'm glad we are because it was an unbelievable piece of individual brilliance. He certainly lit up the game," Lennon is quoted as saying by The Scotsman.

The Bhoys are 11 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership.
