Celtic managed to enter into the semifinals of the Scottish cup after a 4-0 win over Dundee United, but Neil Lennon continued to not face the media after reportedly being extremely unhappy with the coverage of his club.

Celtic managed to record this thumping victory over 10 man Dundee United, which helped them enter into the semifinals.

Celtic were extremely nervous in the first half of the match, but improved significantly in the second half to record this vital win. Joe Ledley, Georgia Samaras, Anthony Stokes and Scott Brown all scored in the second half to give Celtic a comfortable win.

The score may have given the expression that this match was extremely easy for Celtic, but it was anything but. This is because Dundee United managed to keep out Celtic out of the bay for most of the match until defender Robbie Nelson was sent off.

The straight red card for the defender in the 28th minute changed all the outlook of the match, as Celtic managed to express themselves much better. Georgia Samaras was crucial figure in the match, as it was the challenge on him that led to the sending-off of Robbie Nelson. Further, a challenge on the Greece striker also helped Celtic win a penalty late in the match, which was converted by Scott Brown.

“We decided not to hold a press conference this week because of all the nonsense going on elsewhere. People accusing our club of trying to put people out of work at Rangers. It’s in the hands of our legal team and it’s probably best not to talk about it. (We want to) get our heads down and we want to talk about football. A lot of media outlets will be disappointed because we won’t be speaking to them,” Neil Lennon said after the match.
