Neil Lennon will be “over the moon” with the 6-0 win over KR Reykjavik after a “difficult few weeks” for Celtic, according to Alan Hutton.
The former Rangers and Scotland defender, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, believes the comprehensive victory was exactly the confidence boost the Parkhead dressing room needed.
Boli Bolingoli’s breach of health and safety protocols saw two of the Hoops’ Premiership games suspended and let Rangers open up a gap at the top of the table.
Celtic returned to action with their Champions League qualifier on Tuesday and a brace from Mohamed Elyounoussi helped Lennon’s men to a comfortable win over Reykjavik.
Hutton believes that the European clash would have been a big confidence boost for the squad after a testing start to the 2020/21 season.
Hutton told Football Insider: “He’ll (Lennon) be over the moon. It’s been a difficult few weeks for them with the Bolingoli incident and things, it’s not been ideal.
