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.

But John Sutton then grabbed his second of the contest to rescue a late point for
the hosts in added time.

"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.

"I wasn't happy and sent them out early. We were going through the motions and that's not what I expect from the team even though psychologically the league's won," he added. "We have an obligation to the supporters who are here and I thought I got the exact response I was looking for."
