Celtic boss Neil Lennon has moved to quash rumours of a dressing room bust-up with Kris Commons.
The midfielder turned up for training on Wednesday wearing a neck brace and bandages in a bid to take the sting out of internet gossip of a fall-out with his manager.
Lennon had been critical of his team after their 0-0 draw at home on Saturday against Hibernian left them trailing Rangers by 12 points.
However, he has dismissed these tales and insists he is concentrating on the job at hand.
"If things aren't going well at clubs like ourselves, people either spark off rumours or look for things that aren't there," he told Sky Sport News.
"It's just speculation, there's not a lot I can do about it to stop the rumours, and I can't stop the speculation.
"But I know what goes on in-house, and I know that I have a really good group of players that I'm really proud of.
"At the minute, they are just not doing themselves justice. It's up to me to help them do better."
He added: "I know the expectation level at this club and I think the fans have been very supportive.
"We have to take that on board, it is a huge club, with huge expectations and we are not living up to that at the moment."
