Neil Lennon has again paid tribute to his friend and former team-mate Stiliyan Petrov after announcing his retirement from the game.

"He was a fine footballer and enjoyed a magnificent career at Celtic and Aston Villa" - Neil Lennon
The Parkhead favourite and present Aston Villa skipper has been battling with leukaemia since being diagnosed in March of last year and is currently in remission.

"It's very sad that Stiliyan has announced his retirement from football," Lennon told Celtic's official website. "He was a fine footballer and enjoyed a magnificent career at Celtic and Aston Villa, as well as representing and captaining Bulgaria on many occasions.

"First and foremost, of course, is his health, and the news earlier this year that Stiliyan is in remission was a great boost for everyone," he continued. "I'm sure that his characteristic determination, along with the fact he's surrounded by a loving family, will ensure he's a success in this next stage of his life."

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.
