Celtic news – Mjallby goes on the attack, Lennon: I could quit over threats, Wilson dismisses Old Firm title decider talk

Mjallby goes on the attack.

Although a draw keeps them in the driving seat in the race for the SPL title, Johan Mjallby says Celtic will be going on the attack in Sunday´s final Old Firm game of the season at Ibrox.

A win would see the Hoops go two points clear at the top and the Celtic assistant manager, speaking exclusively to Sport Times, said: “We cannot think beforehand that we are going to go out and get a draw. There is no chance of thinking like that.

“Usually we have a very attack-minded team anyway and we obviously have to set up in the way we believe is best for the team, and the way we think is best to play Rangers.”

Wilson dismisses Old Firm title decider talk.

Celtic full-back Mark Wilson reckons Sunday´s crucial Old Firm clash with Rangers will not decide where the 2010/11 SPL title ends up. The game is the last of seven meetings between the clubs this season – so far Celtic have won three, Rangers two and one game has been drawn.

However, asked if this weekend´s game is the decider Wilson dismissed the idea: “I wouldn’t think so,” he told BBC Sport. “We have five games left after Sunday and there is plenty of time for whoever wins the game to drop points.

“Obviously it is very important to both teams to try to win the game but I wouldn’t say it was a league decider. There are plenty of teams who will give the Old Firm plenty of problems in the run-in.”

Lennon: I could quit over threats.

According to the Daily Record, Neil Lennon says he would reconsider his position as Celtic manager if the abuse and death threats he has received since he arrived at Parkhead 11 years ago gets any worse.

Questioned on whether the events of next month will decide his future he said: “Possibly, yes. But it might not be my decision. It might involve the Celtic board as well.”

He added: “If this was to escalate further I would seriously have to reconsider my position. I can do my job OK but living a normal life is different. The sectarian side of things had gone quiet for me for a few years but since last January, when things started to get sent in the post, it has taken a turn for the worse again and that is unpleasant.”
