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."
