Lennon not getting carried away

Next Story

Celtic boss Neil Lennon was taking nothing for granted despite his side moving a big step closer to the Champions League group stage with a superb 2-0 win over Helsingborg in the first leg of their play-off at the Olympia Stadium in Sweden.

Kris Commons volleyed the Scottish side into the lead with less than two minutes on the clock following a cross from Georgios Samaras. Hoops goalkeeper Fraser Forster made a series of saves as the Swedish champions fought back but in the 75th minute Samaras put Celtic in the driving seat for next week's second leg in Glasgow when he headed in a Commons corner.

However, Lennon said afterwards: "There is still a lot to play for in the tie as far as I am concerned. I don't think it's over although our home record is very, very good."
