Sports Digest: Glasgow Rangers woes cut hurts Celtic
“We were told that the linesman gave it, whether I am wrong on that I don’t know. I have seen it on the television and it is pretty inconclusive but it looked to me that Daniel got the ball, you see the way the ball moves.
“It is very debatable decision that has gone against us.”
Celtic extended their domestic winning run to 17 games in Lennon’s 100th game in charge. He added, “I am thrilled for the players.
“We had to contend with a lot of things out there today, including the officials so I am delighted with the win and delighted with the clean sheet.”
Celtic will make a decision on teenage Portuguese striker Edinho Junior on Friday when his week long trial with the club comes to an end.
Aston Villa defender Richard Dunne has handed Giovanni Trapattoni his latest Euro 2012 headache after undergoing a shoulder operation.
Dunne picked up the injury in Sunday’s home defeat to Manchester City and faces up to eight weeks on the sidelines.
Everton defender Shane Duffy has been called up to the Republic of Ireland squad for this month’s friendly against Czech Republic following an injury to Richard Dunne.
Teammate Ciaran Clark is out for a month with a knee injury sustained in training ahead of the game but Dunne is causing most concern.
“We’re gutted to be losing the big man,” said Villa boss Alex McLeish. “He was trying to get us back in the game when he made a tremendous leap but, unfortunately, he landed badly on his shoulder and fractured the collarbone.
“He is a stalwart defender and has been that for the past dozen years or so in the Premier League. It’s not good for us to be without such a top player and a defender of his massive experience.
“We wish Richard a speedy recovery and Ciaran, too, from his knee injury. We will look now for someone else to step up to the mark.”
Ireland boss Trapattoni has reacted to Dunne’s injury by calling Everton youngster Shane Duffy into the squad for the February 29 friendly against the Czech Republic in Dublin.
