CELTIC BOSS Neil Lennon has paid tribute to the fans who gave him massive support during this week’s 4-0 win over Kilmarnock.
Speaking for the first time since bigots tried to kill him with a nail bomb, the Armagh man said the supporters had given him strength.
“It was a tremendous gesture from the fans at Kilmarnock and I can’t thank them enough for the following they gave us – not just me personally, but the team as well,” he told the club website.
“It spurred the team on to deliver a great performance and there seems to be a groundswell of support and unity between the squad and supporters as a whole.
“We are going to need that between now and the end of the season. But, from a personal point of view, I really can’t thank them enough.”
He later told Twitter: “Want to thank all the support it was truly humbling… Team was fantastic… thank you all.”
Lennon was speaking ahead of Sunday’s tense Old Firm clash with Rangers at Ibrox.
Scottish police have stepped up security around both teams.
