Neil Lennon shocker at Ibrox revealed

The fallout over yesterday’s Old Firm shocker continues, and one stat, not mentioned too many times in the press that we’ve seen, highlights just how bad a stinker Rangers had on the day and what a missed opportunity this was.

In Neil Lennon’s two spells as manager at Parkhead, he had never beaten Rangers at Ibrox apart from once during the new year derby of 2011 when he secured, funnily enough, a 0-2 win.

Since then, in four attempts, he’d never managed a win as Celtic boss on Rangers’ home patch – until Sunday.

Last season, of course, Steven Gerrard beat both he and Brendan Rodgers at Ibrox, showing a real appetite for the home fixture and a definite upper hand with matches v our bitterest rivals on the Hallowed Turf.

But yesterday that came unstuck, and it felt an awful lot like the pre-Gerrard type of Rangers performance against the Parkhead side, and Neil Lennon most certainly took full advantage.

This is a trend we definitely don’t want to see continue.
