Lennon hopes to be third time lucky at Hampden

GLASGOW: Celtic manager Neil Lennon is hoping to avoid a hat-trick of Hampden disappointments when his side take on St Mirren in Sunday’s League Cup semi-final.

The Hoops boss watched on in agony as his side lost out to Kilmarnock in last March’s League Cup final before the Parkhead club succumbed to a late Hearts winner in their Scottish Cup semi-final in April.

The Glasgow giants are currently in a great position as they continue their hunt for a first domestic treble in 12 years and also have a Champions League last-16 tie against Juventus to look forward to next month.

But after his previous results at Hampden in charge of the Hoops, which include another Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Ross County, Lennon is far from relaxed heading into the game.

“Every game is a knife-edge, in terms of what we want to do domestically and in Europe,” the Celtic manager said.

“And, in a semi-final, anything can happen.

I am very, very wary of St Mirren and very, very wary of playing at Hampden.”
