Celtic manager Neil Lennon has mixed feelings about his side’s Champions League group stage opponents for the 2013/14 season.

The Scottish giants, who made it through to the Round of 16 last term, will take on Barcelona, AC Milan and Ajax in Group H this campaign.

After meeting and beating Barcelona last time, Lennon is full of confidence as his Celtic squad prepares for a bunch of glamour ties that will test his players to their depths.

"I think it is the best and the worst draw we could have got,” he told Sky Sports.

"In terms of glamour I don't think it comes any better than Barcelona, Ajax and AC Milan. In terms of football it is probably the most difficult group we could have got.

"But I think the hard work was really done last night [in the qualifier against Shakhter Karagandy] and we can go and enjoy the tournament now."
