Neil Lennon claimed Old Firm rookie referee Willie Collum let him down on two crucial decisions during Sunday`s 3-1 defeat to Rangers at Parkhead.In the lead-up to the match the Hoops boss appealed for 31-year-old Collum, making his debut in the fixture, to get the big decisions right.But the former Celtic skipper claimed Ibrox midfielder Lee McCulloch, booked early in the game, should have walked after preventing Georgios Samaras going through on goal with the game goalless in the first half.And the Irishman thought it was also a wrong decision to award Rangers a penalty after Celtic stopper Daniel Majstorovic clashed with substitute Kirk Broadfoot."I think he got a couple of big decisions wrong," Lennon said. "He has got a lot of questions to answer and I want to know why McCulloch was still on the pitch, it was blatant obstruction when we were breaking. It was a second yellow and they should have been down to 10 men in the second half."And I feel let down on the penalty incident for sure. It's a big decision. I have seen a replay of the penalty and it looked soft. I'm not sure he saw it and I'm not sure why he has given it. At 2-1 we were still in the game, at 3-1 it is very difficult for us."
