Cetlic boss Neil Lennon is still confident that he is the right man for the job at Celtic Park, despite more dropped points at the weekend.

The Bhoys have now slipped 13 behind Scottish Premiership leaders and fierce rivals Rangers following the 1-1 draw with St Johnstone on Sunday.

Celtic are now winless in their last five games and have picked up just two victories in their last 12 matches in all competitions, with the pressure building on Lennon.

They are also struggling in the Europa League as they surrendered a two-goal lead in a 4-2 defeat at AC Milan on Thursday and with just one game to go sit bottom of Group H with just one point, with a place in the knockout stages now beyond the Glasgow giants.

Lennon, who is in his second spell as manager at Celtic Park, remains confident despite the poor form after the game on Sunday.

He said: "It will improve, I've no question of that.

"Can I turn it around? Yeah, of course I can. Will I get the time to do it? Well, I've already been told that the club are with me but it's a results-driven business and at the minute the results aren't what they should be."

There has been growing unrest within the Celtic supporters and a number of protests and taken place outside the ground.

Lennon remains faithful in his players and believes better results are within their grasps but has stressed the matter of urgency

He added: "We need to turn it around very, very quickly. They can do it, they're capable of doing it. We need a spark from somewhere and we're not getting that at the minute."

Celtic welcome Lille to Celtic Park on Thursday night for their final Europa League game and they are 4.00 to win.

Lille are 1.90 to win and a draw is 3.60.
