Celtic manager Neil Lennon has mocked Rangers for their recent statement on Ibrox full-back Jon Flanagan, as quoted in The Scottish Sun.

Rangers full-back Flanagan has been handed a two-match ban by the SFA for his elbow on Celtic midfielder Scott Brown during the Old Firm derby at Ibrox last weekend.

The Gers subsequently released a statement strongly criticising the decision, and also accused Celtic defender Jozo Simunovic of elbowing striker Jermain Defoe.

 

Celtic manager Lennon has mocked Rangers for their statement, as quoted in The Scottish Sun.

The Scottish Sun quotes Lennon as saying: “Look, they are good at making statements. We are above all that.

“The only thing I want to say is it’s a straight red card. We should feel aggrieved Jon Flanagan didn’t get a red. That’s all I want to say on it.”

Next season

Celtic have already won the Scottish Premiership title this season, while Rangers have secured the runners-up spot.

The win for Rangers in the Old Firm derby last weekend shows that the Gers can give the Hoops a run for their money next season if they make good investments in the summer transfer window and sign one or two very good players.

Celtic have also won the Scottish League Cup this season, and have progressed to the final of the Scottish Cup.
