Neil Lennon demands focus on Hibernian game

Celtic manager Neil Lennon warns his players that they must perform well against Hibernian if they want to be selected against Ajax in the Champions League.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has demanded that his players remain focused on earning three points against Hibernian rather than their upcoming Champions League fixture with Ajax.

The Hoops have yet to register a point in Europe after defeats to Barcelona and AC Milan, but Lennon has warned that he won't be afraid to drop players for Tuesday's match should they not perform against Hibernian on Saturday.

The 42-year-old told reporters: "The players have responded to everything that we have asked them to do in the league but if they want to play on Tuesday night, they are going to have to play at their best on Saturday."

Celtic are currently three points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.
