Neil Lennon claimed he had "been to hell and back" before the "best" night of his managerial career in guiding Celtic past Helsingborg and into the group stages of the Champions League.

Lennon's men took a 2-0 lead into the second leg of their play-off against the Swedish side and Gary Hooper's close-range strike on the half-hour mark effectively ended the contest before Victor Wanyama grabbed the second two minutes from time.

Asked how he would describe the result with regards his managerial career, the Hoops boss said: "It is the best. I have been to hell and back in the last seven weeks trying to get this right."
