Celtic manager Neil Lennon wants more despite being 10 points clear

​Celtic manager Neil Lennon has downplayed the importance of the side's 5-0 victory over Hearts which has extended their title race to 10 points clear of Rangers in the Scottish Championship.

Olivier Ntcham scored the opener for the hosts and second-half goals came from Christopher Jullien, Callum McGregor, Ryan Christie and Jozo Simunovic to give Celtic a cracker of a win.

Fellow Old Firm rival, Rangers who lost 2-1 in their match against Kilmarnock will now have to dig deeper if they are to finish the Scottish Premiership season closer to The Hoops which won't come easy despite having a game in hand. 

"It might give them a bit of confidence but that's about it," said Lennon as quoted by RTE.

"We have a tough game on Sunday at Pittodrie. We are taking absolutely nothing for granted.

"The players know there is a long way to go and there will be twist and turns as we go along.

"We just need to concentrate on every individual game as it comes along. They were magnificent tonight.

"Their desire, hunger to play, score goals, run; everything you want from a team I got. It was an empathetic victory."
