Celtic manager Neil Lennon has suggested to The Scottish Sun that competing with Rangers inspires him.
Lennon was appointed as the Celtic manager last season, and he guided Celtic to the Scottish Premiership title and the Scottish Cup.
The Hoops are on course to complete a domestic treble again this season, and they have also progressed to the knockout rounds of the Europa League.
Lennon has suggested that competing with Rangers drives him at Celtic.
Lennon told The Scottish Sun: Having this opportunity again is fantastic. I’m really enjoying it.
“The fact Rangers are back challenging drives me on too. It heightens the senses and pushes me on.”
Celtic have won the Scottish Premiership title for the past eight seasons, and the Glasgow giants are favourites to clinch it this campaign as well.
However, Rangers under manager Steven Gerrard are a force to be reckoned with, and there is a very good chance that the Gers will win the league title this season.
Lennon is a very experienced manager who will know how to steer his team to success despite Rangers being so good this season and showing so much determination.
