Neil Lennon has responded to former Republic of Ireland international Gary Breen’s comments that Shane Duffy would regress spending a season in the Scottish Premiership at his boyhood club, as reported by The Glasgow Times.

To say he isn’t happy with the former centre-back’s claims is an understatement after he branded them “embarrassing” in his pre-match press conference for tonight’s clash against St Mirren.

His time in Paradise will absolutely make him a better player and for Breen – who has never played in Scotland – to suggest that he will be poorer for his spell with Celtic, is exactly as the gaffer says – “embarrassing”.

Will Duffy improve or regress on loan at Celtic?

“Gary needs to educate himself better before he starts coming out with these sweeping generalisations about the Scottish game.

“So, I think Gary has it totally wrong, he’s completely misread the situation and it’s a bit embarrassing for him, really.” Duffy will have to get used to an entirely different style of defending playing for Celtic and one that he has never experienced before, dominating possession and defending on the half-way line, being able to concentrate on clearing your lines and keeping the ball out the six-yard box is one thing, constantly being  one-v-one against an attacker is another.

When asked to give his opinion on the perception that the SPFL is of an inferior standard, he said: “He’s just the latest in a long list of people who’ve made comments about the game up here which have been totally wrong.
