Lennon always had faith in Celtic to get a result against Livingston

Celtic boss Neil Lennon says he always had faith in his team that they would come back, after Tom Rogic’s dramatic strike in injury time to earn a 2-2 draw at Livingston.

Parkhead boss Lennon said: “I was delighted with the performance and we deserved three points.

“Their goal could easily have been a foul on Fraser, their second goal was poor from our point of view and for the rest of the game we were magnificent.

“Against a difficult opponent on a difficult pitch, we were absolutely outstanding.

“I had total belief that we would get the equaliser.

“Tom came up with the goods but the team were fantastic, their mindset, intensity and will to win was there in evidence.

“I am sitting here disappointed that it is the first two points we have dropped in 2020 and I didn’t think we deserved it because we dominated the game for long periods and in the end we broke them. It is a privilege for me to manage this team.”

Livingston boss Gary Holt, said: “I’m absolutely buzzing. They are an exceptional side.

“The never-say-die attitude from both teams to get something out of the game was in abundance.

“They had three talented substitutes to put more pressure on you.

“If they equalised in the third minute of the second half and it ends the same, you are still disappointed because you have had a lot of the game and had chances.

“But you play to the final whistle and we had chances to put the game beyond them.

“But as an entertaining spectacle I thought it was excellent.”
