Lennon focused on silverware as Celtic near records

Neil Lennon insists he is targeting trophies rather than records as his Celtic side steamroller their way to a possible treble.

Victory over struggling Dunfermline at Parkhead will extend the Hoops' domestic winning run to 19 games and take them 20 points clear of administration-hit Rangers at the top of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.

With little doubt as to where the championship will end up this season, thoughts have turned to records and three points against the Pars will be Celtic's 13th consecutive win in all competitions - equalling the mark of Martin O'Neill's side of 2004, in which Lennon was a lynchpin.

However, the Parkhead boss, who is waiting for number two goalkeeper Lukasz Zaluska to sign a new three-year contract which has been agreed, said: "It is something I haven't been aware of but if we can do that them great.

"Martin was and is an exceptional manager and he had a very good team here at the time and to emulate that record would be fantastic for this group of players.

"But these numbers mean nothing. The performances and results mean everything to me, the records don't mean a great deal at all."
