NEIL Lennon last night insisted Celtic's eventual title win will be 'all down to Brendan Rodgers' when eight in a row is eventually clinched.

The interim Parkhead manager, whose team drew 0-0 at home to Livingston yesterday, could wrap up the championship against Hibernian at Easter Road in a fortnight despite dropping points.

And while Rodgers is seen as a traitor in the eyes of many Celtic supporters, his predecessor was happy to acknowledge the work his fellow Northen Irishman had one over the best part of three season.

Lennon said: "It’s a partial claim for me, this eight in a row title. For me, it’s down to Brendan and the work he implemented and the foundations which are in place. I want to do it for him as much as anybody else.

“To finish the season unbeaten would be great. It has been difficult, I won’t say it’s been easy, but we are going well. I think performances can get better. The win over Rangers was obviously psychologically huge for us. We then came off the back of that with a decent performance at St Mirren.

“This is still very much so a Brendan team rather than my team. There are players here from my pervious time but it’s still got Brendan’s stamp on it.”

Celtic were flat in the draw with Livingston in a game which gave little for the home crowd to cheer just six days after their dramatic win over Rangers.

Lennon admitted: "It's frustration because we created great chances, even in the 93rd minute we had a great chance to win it.

"The performance was decent, the first half very good, the second half a little bit huffy and puffy. We put a bit of width in the team and again we created some really good chances. I just think we overplay it, at times we can get the ball forward a little bit quicker.

“It will be good to have a couple of days off to rest and recover and then focus on the semi-final.

“Look, we are in a great position - 14 points clear and, yes, Rangers have a game in hand but they have to win it. If they do it will only be 11 with five games to so I think we are in a very strong position.

“We know what we have to do and we’ve got a big semi-final now outwith the league to look forward to so I think there’s a lot to be happy about."
