Celtic full of confidence, says Lennon

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has hailed his side’s 2-0 win over Motherwell as the ideal preparation for their clash against Spartak Moscow.

The Scottish Premier League leaders travel to Russia on Tuesday, hoping to build on their 0-0 draw against Benfica in their opening Champions League outing.

“They will go into that game after that full of confidence now,” Lennon told BBC Scotland in the wake of his team’s comfortable away victory at Fir Park.

“Psychologically, it’s important. It’s six games in with a game in hand. It was important we went top of the league today.

“People will be looking up at us now and that is important for the team and the club.”

A strike from Gary Hooper and an own goal from Motherwell defender Adam Cummins made the difference for the Scottish heavyweights.

“We were brilliant from start to finish,” Lennon said.

“It should have been a lot more, but I’m delighted at the way we played.

“We defended well and, certainly, some of our attacking play was excellent. We could have made the game a lot more comfortable, but it was one-way traffic more or less.

“Once we adjusted to their system a wee bit, we were superb. Our front three, their movement, the midfield three were great and I have to say I was very impressed with the back four.”
