Lennon says a treble will be 'almost impossible'

NEIL Lennon has described winning the Scottish treble this season as impossible despite the fact that the Bhoys are well placed to do something special.

The Hoops, who sit at the summit of the SPL ahead of today's home game with Dundee United, are still in the Scottish Cup and have the semi-final of the Scottish League Cup against Falkirk later this month.

Lennon, who picked up his Scottish Premier League manager of the month award for December, with midfielder Victor Wanyama landing the young player of the month gong, revealed that he is not letting his side contemplate a three-trophy season haul.



Testament

"I have already said the treble is an almost impossible thing to do so I don't want any talk of that," he said.

"It is important not to take our eye off the ball and take each games as it comes."

Lennon lauded his players exploits over the last few weeks, which saw Celtic overhaul Rangers at the top of the SPL.

"(The award) is a testament to the team and the consistency they have shown," he said.

Lennon is trying to strengthen his squad and the Irishman confirmed that Nigerian midfielder Rabiu Ibrahim, 20, and Icelandic winger Ingolfur Sigurdsson, 18, will extend their trial periods at the club.
