Kristoffer Ajer also appeared to suffer a knock but speaking after the match Lennon was positive about their condition.

He said: "They’re fine. Chris Jullien had a wee minute - a second or so - of a blackout, but he was able to finish the game out.

"He was outstanding again today, defensively we looked solid."
