The Bayern Munich forward has scored 16 goals in his last eight appearances for both club and country, but Hanley is confident that Scotland can keep Lewandowski quiet as they did in Warsaw earlier in the qualifying campaign.
The Blackburn centre-half said: "He is a top-quality striker. His record in the last few games is pretty unbelievable.
"It's international football and you are going to come up against players of that quality. It's as much about stopping the supply to him as it is about just stopping him.
"We can take confidence from the last game against Poland. He didn't score against us that night.
"You want to test yourself against the best. His record shows he is definitely one of the best, so we will look to enjoy playing against him.
You can't back off him and give him too much respect.
"We feel we have players they should worry about as well. It is going to be difficult for Poland at Hampden."
