Celtic boss Neil Lennon says their weekend defeat at Hibernian was absolutely nothing to do with complacency.

"There was a real hunger to win the game, it just didn't drop for us" - Neil Lennon
The Hoops witnessed their six-game winning run in all competitions shattered by an early Leigh Griffiths goal as their hosts eventually ran out narrow 1-0 winners at Easter Road.

The champions next move on to entertaining third-placed Motherwell on Wednesday afternoon in their final game before the SPL shuts down for a couple of weeks.

"There was no complacency from what I could see," Lennon told the Daily Record. "I would take the same intensity of performance and the desire. There was a real hunger to win the ball back, there was a real hunger to win the game, it just didn't drop for us. The players will be highly motivated for Motherwell, it is another big game for us."

Celtic 4 Aberdeen 1

Celtic surged to the top of the Scottish Premiership with a 4-1 victory against Aberdeen at Celtic Park.

Leigh Griffiths' early opener was soon cancelled out by Adam Rooney, but James Forrest restored the home advantage ahead of the break.

However, the champions were forced to wait until the closing stages when Scott Sinclair converted an 87th minute penalty after Mark Reynolds was sent-off.

Midfielder Tom Rogic then curled a delightful free-kick in the final minute.
