Neil Lennon says Celtic returned from their winter training camp in Dubai to a “barrage of absolute hypocrisy”.

The Parkhead boss says the club has received unfair criticism of its decision to fly to the Middle East for warm weather training.

He said: “We didn’t abuse any ‘privilege’, we did the right things, we were totally professional.

“We had a little drink in the afternoon on the day of, completely allowed, no law breaking.
“But we come back to this barrage of absolute hypocrisy.”

Celtic players and staff flew out to Dubai following their 1-0 defeat to Rangers on January 2 and spent a week training in the United Arab Emirates.

Lennon, his assistant John Kennedy and 13 players all had to self-isolate after Christopher Jullien tested positive for coronavirus upon returning home.

Chief executive Peter Lawwell has since admitted the trip was “a mistake” and apologised to Hoops fans.
