Neil Lennon targeting an unbeaten record for Celtic

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has set his team the target of going the whole Scottish Premiership season unbeaten in order to move on from their William Hill Scottish Cup exit.

Celtic have gone 24 games unbeaten so far, winning their last 13, and Lennon, named as Scottish Premiership manager of the month for January, wants to maintain the spark about their season despite the destiny of the title being a formality given their 21-point lead.

Lennon, whose team host St Johnstone on Sunday, said: "The incentive now is to go unbeaten the rest of the season. That's the target for them and to win the championship with a bit of style. The cup was important to us because we were the holders but we can't dwell on it. We've had a brilliant season, with Champions League football as well.

"Players have entertained all season and we want to finish the season in style rather than let it peter out."
