Helpng hand Neil Lennon is felled after being hit by a coin

"I take a step back and we are sitting top of the league after 12 games and we have had to deal with a lot of injuries so all credit to the boys and we will get back to our normal selves next week".

Lennon was hit by coin in a bad-tempered 0-0 derby draw with Hearts in midweek and believes he has consistently been the target of anti-Irish racism during his time in Scotland, firstly as a player and manager of Celtic and now in the capital.

Hearts took advantage and seized the initiative in the title race and must have fancied their chances in last weekend's Betfred Cup semi-final which came on the back of another European away defeat for Brendan Rodgers' side.

If they don't, Rodgers will know the future looks bleak for the 2003 UEFA Cup finalists, who are already three points behind second-placed Leipzig in Group B after three games. The Daily Record quote him as saying.

The league table may still say that Hearts are ahead - although Celtic have a game in hand - but Rodgers' men delivered a huge psychological blow.

"He gives us so much and on top of that he presses the game".

"It is also a home match for us, so it is going to be totally different [from Germany]".

"But the confidence is back now and we are playing really well".

Having started the season with just seven goals in seven games, Celtic have since bagged 20 across their last four matches, and consequently sit just one point behind leaders Hearts.

There is a good dynamic about the team at the moment and we are in good form at the moment.

RB Leipzig's Mateus Cunha has scored in his last two Europa League games, and has had at least seven more shots at goal than any other Liepzig player in the competition (13).
