CELTIC manager Neil Lennon has revealed that his squad meet with a sport psychologist twice a month as the under-fire boss looks to salvage his side's campaign.

The Premiership champions trail their rivals Rangers by 13 points in the league, and have already been eliminated from this year's Champions League, Europa League and Betfred Cup - jeopardising the Parkhead's club for an historic tenth consecutive title.

On a miserable run of just two wins in their last 12 outings in all competitions, Lennon is keen to use every tool at his disposal to raise the players' spirits - including regular sessions with a psychologist, which the Northern Irishman believes will help his 'anxious' players.

Lennon said: “A psychologist comes in two times a month.

“The players have been having individual conference calls as well.

“They’ve been working away on a one-to-one basis at times.

“You just don’t know with some players, some of them are very private individuals who don’t give too much away.

“There’s just a bit of anxiety in their play. If anything they are trying too hard.

“They need to try to relax a bit more and play their natural game. Uncertainty can have an effect on players, no doubt about it.”
