Focused Celtic managerNeil Lennonsidestepped the chance to wax lyrical about rivals Rangers ahead of the biggest game of the season.
Scottish football will come to a standstill when the pair do battle in theBetfred Cup Finalat Hampden on Sunday afternoon.
Lennon is looking to mastermind a victory that will secureCeltictheir 10 th consecutive domestic trophy and put a dent in Steven Gerrard’s side.
The Hoops boss spoke to former team-mateChris Suttonahead of the big one and insists he remains solely focused on his own team.
Lennon told BT Sport: “Our form is good going into but you know as well as anybody that form goes out the window in a Cup Final so we’ve got to get our preparation spot on.
Sutton then asked: “Steven Gerrard, what have you made of the job he has done so far?”
Before Lennon shut it down: “Don’t ask me that, it’s not my place to comment on other managers, certainly your biggest rival.”
But Sutton was unperturbed and kept going, adding: “Can i ask you about the Rangers team?”
Lennon , laughing as he responded, said: “No, no.”
Before Sutton tried one more time, asking: “Do you think they’ve improved under Steven Gerrard? “
Lennon, eventually conceding:” Yes, but then I think what gets overlooked is we’ve improved as well. “
The Record Sport pundit then joked “Thanks for this, Neil” on Twitter over the clip.
