The Hibees manager will be delighted after leading his side to all three points in a hard-fought game at Ibrox against Graeme Murty’s in-form team.
Going into the game, Rangers had won three on the bounce and were buoyed by an impressive January transfer window.
Hibs, on the other hand, have had to deal with a spate of injuries recently, including Paul Hanlon, Darren McGregor, Steven Whittaker and David Gray.
But it was the away side who played best and deservedly came away with a 2-1 win.
And Lennon says the victory is up there with the achievement of leading Celtic to a famous Champions League win over Barcelona back in 2012.
Speaking post-match, Lennon, per dailyrecord.co.uk, said: “It’s up there with the Barcelona result in my managerial career.
“It’s an incredible result given under the circumstances, with all the injuries we had. We played fantastically well, particularly in the first half.
“Rangers came back strongly but we decided to play again after they equalised and got the penalty.”
That’s a bold opening statement from Lennon, particularly because of how memorable that result against Barcelona is for Celtic fans and the quality of team they were up against that night.
With the win, Hibs remain fourth in the Scottish Premiership table, but they’ve cut the gap to Rangers in third to two points.
