Lennon was clearly still reeling this afternoon, as the dust begins to settle on Hibs’ 2-1 defeat to Rangers on Wednesday night.
The Hibees dominated proceedings against Graeme Murty‘s side at Easter Road, with Rangers fortunate to leave the country’s capital with all three points.
However, goals from Josh Windass and Alfredo Morelos secured the visitor’s fourth victory in a row, with Rangers now sitting second in the table.
And it’s all left Lennon very frustrated, as he claimed in this afternoon’s press conference that Hibs have been “very unfortunate” not to pick up more points.
The major talking point from the ex-Celtic manager, however, has to be his assessment that only his former side play a better brand of football than his current charges:

Is Lennon right, are his team one of the best in the division?
