Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has reacted to fans booing at full time after his side's victory over Ross County.

The Scottish champions ran out 1-0 winners against Derek Adams' men thanks to a deflected striker from Alistair Johnston in the first minute.

It is a result which extends the Parkhead side's lead at the top of the league table to five points, however, some fans could be heard voicing their discontent at full time.

And Rodgers insists he is used to the flak. He said: "I have had that [negative fan reaction] since I have been here. If it’s not the result, it’s me. If it’s not me, it’s the board.

"All we can do as a team is win games and try to improve and develop which is what the team has done.

"The team and staff work hard everyday so we are very much together and that is how we will continue to be.

"If it fall below the expectation then we will do everything we can to be better."

Meanwhile, Neil Lennon is reportedly the 'red hot favourite' to become the new Ireland manager.

The former Celtic manager has been out of the dugout since being sacked by Omonia Nicosia.

However, Lennon has been vocal over his desire to return to management while working as a pundit.

Now, Lennon could be handed the opportunity to take over as Ireland national team boss having held talks with the FAI.

The Irish Mirror reports Lennon met with FAI chiefs Marc Canham and Jonathan Hill with Packie Bonner also present for the discussion.

And it's claimed the FAI will hold a board meeting on Tuesday where members will be briefed on the managerial search by Canham.

Ex-Celtic and Hibs boss Lennon surged in the odd list for the job after Lee Carsley reportedly knocked back the opportunity of becoming manager.

It's claimed Carsley did consider the position but later informed the FAI that he did not want to be considered for the post despite being the bookies favourite and a leading candidate.

Discussing the position last year, Lennon told PLZ Soccer: "Like all these jobs there will be a plethora of outstanding candidates so it will be a process.

"There will be a shortlist and they will be working through it. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I will get an opportunity to speak to them."
