Lennon makes poor attempt at humor

MOST COMMENTED

Celtic came away from its Old Firm match against Rangers at Ibrox with the upper hand, despite the final score of 0-0 and Georgios Samaras' missed penalty. The result left Rangers with a one point, but Celtic still has a game in hand as the teams conclude the Scottish Premier League's extended season.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon, the target of a parcel bomb earlier in the week, had reason to be happy but was his provocation called for under the circumstances? As he walked off the field, he put his hands to his ears, urging the home Rangers fans to let him how they felt. No incident took place, the huge security force called out in Glasgow was thankful for that.

Lennon didn't see what was wrong with what he did.

"Don't ask me about that," he said. "It's called humor. Don't distract from my team's performance. Don't even write about it. You have the photographs and I'll see them tomorrow -- it's just a bit of fun. I don't want it to distract from my team's performance. They were men today, real men."
