Neil Lennon: 'It is another semi-final to look forward to'

Anthony Stokes and Joe Ledley were on the mark in the 2-1 win in Paisley and Lennon hopes his side can build on that as they look to overturn a 3-0 first leg deficit against Juventus on Wednesday.

"We've gifted them a goal and they haven't had to work for the goal. Gary's clean through and Jamesy then snatched at the rebound but we're going well, still in three competitions.

"It is another semi-final to look forward to. I think that's five or six in a row now and obviously we want to improve on our record in the cups.

"It is a huge win and keeps the season very much alive and competitive.

"Joe Ledley has come back and been exceptional for us. We've had a marvellous season and, hopefully, we can keep it going on Wednesday (against Juventus).

"To go there and win would be a tremendous way to end to the campaign.

"We want to make it look like the score-line at Celtic Park was a little bit flattering to Juventus. We'd like to go, compete and try and win the tie."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
