Lennon hails jaded stars

Last Updated: Mon, 21 Oct 2013 15:57

Celtic manager Neil Lennon admitted his players felt the strain of the recent international break as they scraped a 1-1 draw with Hibs.

James Forrest's wonder strike gave the champions a point and while Lennon admitted his side might well have gone on to win, he could see the strain the last fortnight had taken its toll on some of his squad.

"We didn't get what we deserved, which was the three points," Lennon told BT Sport.

"I'm delighted with the attitude of the players. It was very difficult for them after being away for two weeks on international duty, you could see some of them were not at their best today.

"I'm glad to get that game out of the way. I'm glad to get the international break out of the way."
