Neil Lennon Warns Against Complacency and Says Celtic Could Revert Back to 4-3-3

Celtic boss Neil Lennon has warned against the danger of becoming complacent after his side stretched their lead at the top of the Ladbrokes Premiership to 10 points, whilst also discussing the different formations at his disposal.

The Hoops continued their excellent post-Christmas form last night by thumping Hearts 5-0 at Parkhead, whilst bitter rivals Rangers were losing 2-1 away to Kilmarnock at the same time.

The results took Celtic’s lead into double figures, albeit with Rangers having played a game less, but Lennon is refusing to get carried away ahead of this weekend’s tricky-looking match away to Aberdeen.

Speaking to the media ahead of the trip to Pittodrie, Lennon said via Clyde 1: “Are the boys going to get complacent?

“I doubt it very much.

“They will maybe want to try to increase (the lead) if they can. I think that’s the mode of thinking here – no complacency, don’t take anything for granted.

“You’re fresh, you’re fit, you look hungry, let’s stay that way.”

Recently, Celtic have been playing with a 3-5-2 formation, but Lennon added he feels his side are now able to adapt and easily shift from one shape to another:
