Celtic manager Neil Lennon conceded his side appeared tired after being held to a 1-1 draw by St Johnstone at Parkhead.

"They looked really flat and sometimes there's not a lot you can do about that" - Neil Lennon
Substitute Tony Watt earned the hosts an early second-half lead later cancelled out by Nigel Hasselbaink as Saints to some extent avenged their recent heavy League Cup defeat.

"There was no spark," Lennon admitted to BBC Scotland. "They looked really flat and sometimes there's not a lot you can do about that. A few of them were just a bit short and they shouldn't have been.

"You're looking for that wee spark and Tony gave us that but some of them are dead on their feet," he added. "It's the second time in two weeks now we've taken a lead and conceded it and that's disappointing."

A second successive draw leaves Celtic trailing leaders Hibernian by two points in the table but with still one games in hand.
