Lennon: ” Don’t Define Me By Derby Results “
Written by RockSport on March 8, 2018
Neil Lennon insists his legacy as Hibernian head coach will not be determined by Edinburgh derby results.
Hearts, who knocked their great rivals from the capital out of the Scottish Cup in January at Tynecastle, travel to Easter Road on Friday nine points behind their city rivals in the Scottish Premiership.
“I’m not going to be defined as Hibs manager by derby results,” Lennon said.
“If that’s what the Hibs fans want, they have they have got the wrong man in charge.”
Hibs have won one derby and drawn the other in the league this season, but Lennon is more concerned about the pressure his side can put on the trio above them should they secure another three points.
“I’m looking at the far bigger picture of taking the club on and progressing it,” he said.
