The team drew 0-0 against Aberdeen in today’s Scottish Premiership fixture but keep the league’s first position.

With four matches to go in the 2018-2019 season of the Scottish Premier League, Celtic is currently in the first position of the table.

But today’s 0-0 draw with Aberdeen was not very good for the team, as they are ahead of second-place Rangers by eight points.

And Celtic’s boss Neil Lennon knows the club is not responding as well as he wants.

“OK, a little bit flat, a little bit leggy, I understand that,” he said to STV.

“It is natural. You have that adrenaline rush for a couple of days, there is always going to be a bit of a lull afterwards.”

“They are human beings, not robots, and I understand that, and I again thanked them for their performance,” he continued.

“It is more psychological than anything else. They lacked that little bit of pizzazz in the final third.”

Gerrard wants to motivate his players

Rangers were kicked out after losing against Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup Quarterfinals and will only focus now on the league.

“But we have had three really difficult games to negotiate in 10 days and we have come out of it unscathed, and we will get them together after a couple of days’ rest and move forward,” he added.

“We take a point, we are still unbeaten (domestically) since the turn of the year.”

“I would have loved to win the game and be 10 points clear but you can’t have everything and they are giving me everything. You have to give Aberdeen credit as well, they are a tough nut to crack sometimes,” the coach concluded.

Celtic are set to visit Dundee and Saint Mirren, while they will host Rangers and Livingston.
