PRESSURE CONTINUES TO mount on Celtic manager Neil Lennon after his side’s ailing bid to win a 10th consecutive Scottish Premiership title was hit by another setback.

The nine-in-a-row champions needed an 83rd-minute equaliser from substitute Mohamed Elyounoussi to salvage a 1-1 draw against St Johnstone at Celtic Park.

Elyounoussi scored with his first touch after Chris Kane put the visitors in front three minutes earlier.

On the back of Rangers’ 4-0 win over Ross County earlier today, Celtic now trail their Glasgow rivals by 13 points, although they do have two games in hand.

Amid a dismal run of form, Lennon’s side have won just twice in their last 12 outings in all competitions.
