The emotional heft of stretched ambition is taking its toll on Celtic.

By the time the misfiring Scottish champions kick-off at home against St Johnstone this afternoon, they could be 14 points behind Rangers, who play Ross County at Dingwall at midday. There is no escaping the sense of both catch-up and reconnection for Neil Lennon.

The beleaguered Hoops boss remains in charge, with Parkhead 10 in a row dreams delicate. Under Lennon's watch, Celtic have floundered in too many key games, and the sloth served up as Ross County knocked them out of the Betfred Cup was brutal viewing for increasingly desperate fans.
