Danny Lennon has yet to beat Celtic

St Mirren manager Danny Lennon has targeted victory over Celtic this weekend in a bid to end his long wait for a Hoops scalp.

The Buddies boss has failed to take a single point from the Scottish champions during his two years at the Paisley club.

With Celtic sitting at the top of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League, and also performing well on the European stage, Danny Lennon is well aware of the size of task facing his side when Neil Lennon's men come calling.

He said: "It's going to be a big challenge. In every game, we want to play well, we want to win, we want to entertain.

"But, in my two years as St Mirren manager, I haven't even taken a point off Celtic so that shows you the challenge we do face.

"We are expecting a very difficult game. Celtic are doing fantastically well.

"They are fighting two wars at this moment in time, one domestically and one in Europe and doing very well in both.

"Their result and performance in Moscow was a shot in the arm for Scottish football and I was really pleased that they managed to achieve that.

"Lenny and his staff deserve a great deal of credit for the way he's got them playing.

"For the pressures that must come with that job, Neil must take a lot of credit for the way he has handled himself."
