From Snake Mountain To Hamilton
There's no denying winning at the home of their biggest rivals is massive, but if Celtic can't keep up that form in the next game, they have a problem.

There's no denying winning at the home of their biggest rivals is massive, but if Celtic can't keep up that form in the next game, they have a problem.

That's the football philosophy of Neil Lennon, who is drilling into his players the dangers of complacency as they strive to maintain their winning ways.

Now that the international break is over, Lennon's men are facing another away trip, this time to Brian Rice's Hamilton and the Hoops gaffer is adamant that his side can't drop the points that they fought so hard for against the Zombies .

He said: “There is no point in winning at Snake Mountain and then slipping up at Hamilton. My problem is that I won’t get a lot of them back until Thursday, so I’ll have them for a couple of days and then we have an early kick-off – not that I’m complaining. I just have to hope that they all come back fit and healthy.

“They will all come back in dribs and drabs, so again it’s important to keep in contact with what is going on with them. I might watch a few games. There is still a core of players here. We’ll work them hard and then give them a few days off.

“Going from Snake Mountain to Hamilton is where you are looking to Scott Brown, Callum McGregor, James Forrest; the lads who have been here for a while and know what it’s all about.

"And the consistent performers as well, Ryan Christie and while Mikey Johnston is only young he knows what it’s all about – but for the new ones this will be new challenge.

“It’s actually something that’s not a major worry for me. Going to Hamilton is a totally different environment from the Zombies game. But in Scotland you have got here and there – but you have to win.

“There is a disparity between some games in Scotland. Complacency is your enemy after a big high and a huge concentrated effort.

"It’s been a very demanding month but they have come thought it very well. You do what that momentum going, and we have built up some against Rangers because we want that to dip.”
