Lennon: Past glories will inspire Celtic

Neil Lennon will take his Celtic players to the Estadio Nacional to train on Tuesday morning, the scene of the club's famous European Cup final win over Inter Milan in 1967.

A win for the Hoops will guarantee them a place in the last 16 with a score draw being enough if Barcelona beat Spartak Moscow, and Lennon is looking for every advantage.

He said: "1967 is a pivotal day in our history and we all aspire to reach those heights again.

"The Lisbon Lions are a very special team, a unique bunch of men in the history of the club, and it is very poignant that we are playing in Lisbon.

"We will train at the stadium in the morning and let these current players get a feel of what is a special piece of history for our club.

"We did it (trained there) in 2007 and it might inspire them to play as well as they can."
