Celtic manager Neil Lennon has defended his after match gestures to the Rangers fans after the 0-0 draw this afternoon.
Lennon was seen to put his hands behind his ears as he crossed the pitch in front of the Rangers faithful at the end of the last Old Firm derby of the season.
"I was simply trying to make a point", the fiery ex Northern Ireland international said in a post match press conference.
"I put my hands behind my ears in order to signify that there is still an elephant in the room.
Nobody wants to talk about the problems that lie behind the verbal and physical abuse that myself and some of the Celtic players have to put up with.
I'm sure that some of the Rangers guys are similarly affected".
Lennon did, however, deny that his gesture was in any way intended to inflame the situation by suggesting that the Ibrox faithful were overly quiet as a result of failing to beat their closest rivals.
