Neil Lennon rips into Celtic’s ‘lack of hunger’ after Europa League defeat by Sparta Prague

Neil Lennon looks on during Celtic’s defeat

“I need to get them more hungry, more on point, back to basics. We didn’t do basics well enough, didn’t use our bodies, didn’t run. All the things that Sparta did.

“We need to be far more aggressive as individuals. As a manager I have to accept responsibility but players need to look at themselves as individuals.

“We got back into it at 2-1 and looked like we showed character but the third goal is too easy.

“We need to get back to showing a bit more humility, working hard on the training ground.

“I didn’t see that coming after Sunday, a great performance, four-day break.

“We didn’t do the basics well enough. A set play, they’ve hardly been in our half.

“A corner isn’t even that well hit. But we should be there for first contact, be more aggressive with defending. We bang the drum about that all the time.”
