PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Gutted Neil Lennon has issued a full apology to Celtic fans in the wake of his side's wretched 1-0 defeat to Ross County that sets Rangers up for title glory a Parkhead. The 49-year-old could could barely contain his shock after he watched his team pass up a host of gilt-edged chances before Jordan White headed home to secure the Staggies a famous win. Celtic now trail Rangers by 18 points and any slip up in their next two games could set up the nightmare scenario of being asked to welcome Steven Gerrard's side onto the pitch on March 21 with a Premiership guard of honour. And for that - and an 11th league game without victory this season - Lennon could only hold his hands up. Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: "I'm sorry, we've let them down again. It's not for the want of trying to win a game of football. So we are bitterly disappointed with that."

'We've conceded a goal from a header from maybe the biggest guy in their team and we should have dealt with it comfortably. "It's been a bug bear, it's certainly been a weakness all season. I can't change it now. We have a lot of players out but heading the ball is part of the game. "Defending set plays is part of the game we have not done that anywhere near well enough this season. "We can tell them ad nauseam on the training ground, we can set them up ad nauseam but you've got to go and want to head the ball in both boxes and we haven't done that well enough "Bitterly disappointed, (my players) are good enough to learn, I don't know, maybe they don't want to get hurt or throw their body in the way of things, it's not good enough. "There's been scrutiny on me all the time. I don't think that is going to chance. This is a result that has happened but we were in total in control and the chances we missed in the first half were unbelievable."
