Celtic manager Neil Lennon thought his side were unrecognisable during their 3-3 draw at Motherwell.

"We looked like some of the players were on holiday already" - Neil Lennon
Strikers Anthony Stokes, Georgios Samaras and substitute Leigh Griffiths were each on target as the visitors fought back from being two-goals down. Kris Commons also saw a penalty saved.

"In the first half, we looked like some of the players were on holiday already," Lennon told BBC Scotland. "I thought defensively in the first-half we were very poor. We gifted Motherwell two goals.
