Celtic boss Neil Lennon expecting tough Hibernian test

Celtic manager Neil Lennon warns his players to expect a tough test against Hibernian this weekend.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has warned his players to be wary of the threat posed by Hibernian when they visit Easter Road this weekend.

The Hoops boss believes that the opposition are much improved under new manager Terry Butcher and is expecting them to be fired up for tomorrow's game.

"If you look at their results overall under Terry, you can see glimpses of improvement from where they were," PA quotes Lennon as saying. "They have been consistent and difficult to beat, so that was a surprise result last week.

"But as Terry said during the week, there is probably no better game for their players to get their teeth back into than to play us with the run that we are on and try to be the team that breaks that run.

"Our players are very motivated to keep the run going but then I would say the opposition would be motivated to be the team that stops the run."

Celtic head into the match unbeaten in the Scottish Premiership this season.
