Defeat by Dons isn't death of the season

CELTIC will look to bounce back from their midweek defeat to Aberdeen when they face Inverness Caley Thistle this weekend and I don't think there will be any hangover for Neil Lennon or the players.

They did have the target of going through the season unbeaten but that is gone now, unfortunately, as has the clean-sheet record.

The main focus now is making sure that the Premiership title is won as soon as possible.

I don't think Celtic played that badly at Pittodrie.

I do think the sending-off of Virgil van Dijk was justified, but Celtic showed good spirit to fight back after going down to 10 men.

It won't affect how they go about things against Inverness: they will be determined to get back to winning and move another three points closer to three-in-a-row.

Celtic have come back from defeats already this season and, as I have said before, there is no danger that they will take their foot off the gas in the coming weeks.

The manager certainly won't allow his players to ease off and the fans won't either.

The season is far from over for Celtic.
