Celtic need to improve on starts

6:00 am on 4 October 2010

The Celtic football coach Neil Lennon says his side must drastically improve how they start games, after his side survived an early scare to defeat Hamilton 3-1 and top the Scottish Premier League.

Hamilton took a shock third-minute lead through defender Mark McLaughlin, but Celtic midfielder, Shaun Maloney, scored either side of half-time, and striker Gary Hooper sealed the victory, to make it seven out of seven wins for the side.

It leaves Celtic ahead of rivals Rangers on goal difference, who themselves needed to come from behind, as Steven Naismith scored three minutes into injury time to secure a 2-1 win away to Hearts.
