Champion Neil Lennon chases Double after Celtic win Scottish title
Sunday 21 April 2013
Neil Lennon, the Celtic manager, celebrates after his side wrapped up their third Scottish Premier League title in a row yesterday with a 4-1 win over Inverness Caledonian Thistle yesterday.
All the goals came in the second half at Celtic Park as Gary Hooper scored twice, while Joe Ledley and substitute Georgios Samaras also found the back of the net for the Bhoys, who are now 15 points clear of second-place Motherwell.
Although Lennon admitted he found this year more comfortable than last, he is still determined to beat Hibernian in the final of the Scottish Cup. He said: "If I could achieve the Double as a manager, that would rank right up there with anything I've done."
