NEIL LENNON has led Celtic to EIGHT successive wins in all competitions following the 4-0 triumph over Livingston at Parkhead at the weekend.
Odsonne Edouard, skipper Scott Brown – with the aid of a deflection – and winger James Forrest, with a second-half double, scored the goals that exacted revenge on Gary Holt’s side after the 2-0 setback in West Lothian at the start of last month.
The champions are riding high, but Hoops boss Lennon admitted he is prepared for a dip in form and fortunes as they face 10 encounters before the turn of the year.
The hectic fixture schedule takes in a Betfred League Cup Final against Rangers at Hampden a week on Sunday, two Europa League Group E confrontations with Rennes due in Glasgow on Thursday evening and a trip to Romania to face Cluj on December 12.
There are also Premiership games against Ross County, Hamilton Accies, Hibs, Hearts, Aberdeen, St Mirren and a return league match against Steven Gerrard’s side at Parkhead.

Lennon, speaking to the BBC, admitted: “There will be anxious moments as we go along. There will be a dip, but, at the minute, we are in a very strong position and playing brilliantly.
“We know there can be a below-par performance around the corner, but we are prepared for that, as well.
“Psychologically, it was a good win for us.
“You get 24 hours to enjoy it and then you move on to the next one.”
Livi gaffer Holt added: “I know everyone will pick up the papers and look at it as 4-0, but I just thought individual mistakes at times in the game cost us.
“For effort and commitment and all the things you look for, team shape, being brave at times in possession, I thought we had that.
“At times, I felt we could’ve been braver, but, if you take the goals out of the game, they didn’t cut us open too many times.”
