LENNY HOPES IT'S THIRD TIME LUCKY

By Trialist

Neil Lennon has been ever present at Celtic during this Century's League Championship haul for Celtic - Champions five times and runners-up twice.

On the five occasions Celtic have been crowned Champions thus far this Millennium, we have won by a landslide, with Lenny as a player pivotal to these triumphs, whilst the Celtic Legend has twice suffered the agonies of final day defeat – in 2003 and 2005.

Neil Lennon is hopeful that, with the League Championship destined for another final day decider, this time it will be third time lucky for Celtic and for the Irishman, whose arrival as Coach has coincided with Celtic's resurgence of form and results.

After the Huns could only draw 1-1 at Motherwell on Saturday, Celtic, on 86 points and with our final game against Dundee United at Tannadice, currently lead the Huns by 3 points.

However, they have two matches remaining, against St Mirren at Love Street on Monday and against Aberdeen at Pittodrie on the final day of the campaign.

Should it come to the reckoning of Goal Difference, Celtic currently enjoy an advantage of +57 compared to the Huns' +50.

Neil Lennon said: “People may say the Championship is now ours to lose, but we need to wait and see the outcome of the St Mirren game. That can still have a huge say in how the League looks going into Thursday night. But we are in a much better position than we were a week ago.”

Lenny continued: “The five Leagues I have won with Celtic have all been with a bit to spare. We've won it with at least four or five games to go. The two I lost in 2003 and 2005 were on the final day. The first of those was understandable after the UEFA Cup Final, but two years later it was unforgivable.”

Lenny added: “So if it does go all the way this season then I hope it is third time lucky for me. It would be nice to sample the feeling of doing it on the last day with all the drama.”

Neil Lennon also added the warning: “But United are well organised and resilient under Craig Levein. They will be hard to break down.”

If it's gonna be a ‘Helicopter Thursday', hopefully the chopper will be heading for the Hoops at Tannadice.
