Neil Lennon claimed Celtic's 2-0 win over HJK Helsinki allowed him to burst out of the bubble of pressure he had felt going in to the Champions League third qualifying round second leg match at the Sonera Stadium.

Goals after the break from midfielder Joe Ledley and wide-man Georgios Samaras took the Scottish champions into the play-offs with a 4-1 aggregate success, guaranteeing the Scottish champions at least a place in the group stages of the Europa League.

Asked if it was important for him to get through against the Finnish club, the Parkhead boss said: "Yes I do, just for my own sanity. I have been agonising over this tie for a long, long time, probably since we picked up the (league) trophy in May."
