The Hoops could be crowned champions as early as this weekend if they defeat Hibernian at Parkhead and Motherwell lose to St Mirren. And, once they do wrap up the championship, Lennon believes it will be an achievement that is well deserved this term.

"First of all we have to beat Hibs and then see what the Motherwell v St Mirren game brings," he said. We are at home and our home form has been sensational for the last seven or eight games.

"We've won 10 in a row at home and I want to maintain that. I want us to play with a bit of swagger that's been missing for the last couple of weeks."

On the prospect of clinching the SPL crown, Lennon added: "I would be delighted, thrilled.

"It's a great feeling, it's a great sense of achievement and it's been our priority from the start of the season. Obviously Europe was a high in the season but to put another title on the record of the club would be brilliant and would be great for the players as well and thoroughly deserved."
