Lennon makes poor attempt at humor

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.
