Neil Lennon is refusing to rule Hibs out of having a big role in the title race.

The Celtic boss plays host to the high-flying Easter Road outfit on Sunday in a mouth-watering crunch at Parkhead.

Lennon’s old team enter the weekend just three points off the pace at the summit of the Scottish Premiership after an impressive start to the campaign under gaffer Jack Ross.

Hibs underlined their abilities six days ago by holding leaders Rangers to a 2-2 draw on home soil to set themselves up for a showdown with the champions.

Lennon knows that it will be extremely tough for any other side to maintain a strong challenge to the Glasgow pair in the flag fight over the course of a marathon and squad-sapping 38-game programme.

But he also acknowledges that it would be wrong for anyone at this stage to simply dismiss Ross’ team from staying within the battle.

Asked if Hibs could push or even split the Old Firm this term, Lennon said: “It’s a big ask. I think the big two in Glasgow are strong and it’s a long season, but you never know.

“This is a year that’s unprecedented. So, you can’t predict anything the way things are going this season.”

Lennon is on full alert for Sunday and continued: “It’s obviously still very early in the season, but they’ve made a great start and we’re very wary of Hibs.

“Any team that takes points off ourselves and Rangers has to be respected. We need to keep an eye on them.

“But we’ll be prepared for it. We know the threat Hibs pose and we know their style of play. It’s got the ingredients of a very good game.

“I was impressed with how they approached the Rangers game. Hibs have got that in them and they’ve got some really good players.”

Lennon wants to ruin the weekend for Hibs and maintain his team’s own title push, but admits he has fond memories of his two-and-a-half term in charge at Easter Road and says the spell reinvigorated him as a manager.

The Northern Irishman enjoyed a successful reign as he took the club back into the top-flight before finishing in February 2019.

“I had a brilliant group of players and good people in the background. It’s a great club with a great support.

“I had a couple of fantastic years with getting promotion and then getting into Europe. There were a couple of semi finals too and we played with a real sort of swagger and freedom.

“I really did enjoy myself there, enjoyed it immensely. My time there reinvigorated me as a manager.

“The first time I went in I felt Stubbsy [Alan Stubbs] had left me a very good squad. They’d not long won the Scottish Cup. I just looked at the players and felt we had a chance.

“They kicked on and everything we asked of them they did very well. It was difficult to maintain the standards set in those first few years, but I had a brilliant time.

“Hibs are a proper big city club and certainly it was important I got them back into the Premier League.
