Lennon on revenge mission

05 Feb 2007 - 14:30:52

Celtic captain Neil Lennon admits he will be on a revenge mission when the Bhoys face Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the quarter-finals of the Tennent's Scottish Cup later this month.

Celtic set up a last-four meeting with a side that have twice knocked them out of the competition in the last six years with a comfortable 4-1 victory over first division Livingston on Sunday.

"That was the draw to avoid and it's always going to be tough going up there," said Lennon.

"When you look at the teams who are left in the cup, they will be one of the dark horses.

"I played in the last game (in 2003). I remember they scored early but in the second half we bombarded them and Mark Brown (who signed for Celtic last month) had a great game and he keeps reminding me about that.

"It was great cup victory for them but a sickener for us so there might be a wee bit of revenge in the air when we go up there the next time.

"Everyone will be talking about it and there will be a score to settle as far as we're concerned."
