Video: Neil Lennon Praises Celtic Players for Derby ‘Masterclass’ After Win Over Rangers

Celtic boss Neil Lennon piled praise on his players following this afternoon’s win over bitter rivals Rangers – describing the victory as an Old Firm Derby ‘masterclass’.

Attention now turns to the final day of the transfer window for Lennon and the Celtic board, but how satisfying a result was that for the supporters?
