NEIL Lennon has won the Clydesdale Bank SPL Manager of the Month Award for February is recognition of his team´s 100 per cent record throughout the month.
The Celtic boss has steered his side to a 20-point lead at the top of the table, with five SPL wins, scoring 13 goals and not conceding any. The Hoops´ other February fixture was a 2-0 Scottish Cup win away to Inverness Caley Thistle.
Speaking exclusively to Celtic TV´s Huddle Online show tonight, assistant manager Johan Mjallby explained that the manager was a worthy recipient of the award.
"Without a shadow of a doubt," he said, "especially being on this good run that we’ve got just now. It’s great for all of us, and it proves that we’re doing things in the right way.
"We always knew that we had the players, we never panicked, which is probably the main reason we’re sitting here top of the league and still in the two cups, and with everything to play for.
"It was very important that we didn’t change much, despite the poor run of results we had earlier in the season, and we stuck to the things we believed was the right path to success, and it was a case of getting the players to work a wee bit harder for each other.
Johan Mjallby also talks about the difference between playing and management, he reflects on the importance of the next few games for Celtic, and he reveals a little about the management team´s pre-match preparations, including some hotly-contested card competitions.
