Manager Neil Lennon considered Celtic's Scottish Communities League Cup semi-final defeat against St Mirren as one of the worst performances under his leadership.

"That's as bad as we've played for a long time under me" - Neil Lennon
The Buddies earned a final meeting with Hearts in March through a 3-2 scoreline at Hampden Park. Gary Hooper and Charlie Mulgrew were on the mark for the Hoops but the former Aberdeen defender also both missed and conceded a penalty.

"That was as poor as we've played this season," Lennon admitted to
BBC Scotland. "We were poor defensively, half-hearted in midfield, and apart from Gary Hooper going forward, we were tepid.

"There was no leadership and I'm not pointing the finger at Scott Brown for that at all," he continued. "I got a response from the players at half-time, but the turning point was the two penalties - I didn't think either of them were.

"We had a great opportunity to get to a final again, and that's as bad as we've played for a long time under me; I'm struggling to find the answers."

Celtic 2 Hamilton Academical 0

Celtic surge on unopposed at the top of the table after leading goalscorer Moussa Dembele was on target either side of the break against Hamilton Academical.

The 20-year-old Frenchman curled his side ahead on the stroke of half-time before converting a 59th minute penalty after Kieran Tierney was fouled by Massimo Donati.

Winger James Forrest lasted only ten minutes into the contest until being on the end of a heavy challenge and was replaced by Gary Mackay-Steven.
