NEIL Lennon looks set to continue his experiment of two up front after praising the link-up play between Odsonne Edouard and Leigh Griffiths during the win at Rugby Park last night.

The Celtic manager went with a 3-5-2 formation and could continue with it after seeing the way in which the Parkhead side dominated against Kilmarnock.

“Their link-up play at times was as good as I’ve seen from them together,” said Lennon. “A fit Leigh Griffiths is an asset for anyone. It [two up front] seems to suit us at times. You look at the personnel that is available. We didn’t have many wingers so we went with two strikers and I like that formation.

“We know what Leigh can do. That’s two goals in two games. He can get fitter and he knows that but he’s getting better. His set-play delivery tonight was very good as well.”

The National:

Griffiths dominated the post-match interviews after being involved in a spat when he came off but Lennon’s preference was for a focus on the performance as a whole.

“Leigh is not the whole story here,” said the Celtic manager. “Edouard was brilliant, Ntcham was brilliant and Brown and McGregor have been outstanding. Chris Jullien scored a marvellous header.

“I love those goals and it is one of the reasons why we brought him in because he can be a real asset at set-plays.”
