Video: Neil Lennon Insists Pressure Now All on Rangers After Celtic Beat Hearts

Celtic boss Neil Lennon has insisted all of the pressure is now on Rangers following the Hoops’ win over Hearts on Wednesday evening.

First-half goals from Ryan Christie and Olivier Ntcham ensured a comfortable 2-0 victory for the reigning Premiership champions at Tynecastle – with the Jambos now joint-bottom of the table.

The win now sees Celtic extend their lead at the top of the pile to five points, albeit with their arch enemies Rangers having played a game less, but – speaking to BT Sport after the final whistle – Lennon seemed insistent that the balance of duress was now all on the Ibrox side:

Celtic now have just three games left to play before the end of 2019 – one of which is at home to Steven Gerrard’s Gers side – so could we be about to see them open up a points gap as the season heads into the New Year?
