Lennon salutes heroes

Published Add your comment

Neil Lennon hailed his Celtic "heroes" who wrote themselves into the history books with their momentous 2-1 Champions League victory over Barcelona at Parkhead.

It was a Group G clash that the Hoops were not supposed to win but the East End of Glasgow exploded as Victor Wanyama and Tony Watt scored leaving Lionel Messi's late strike a consolation and pop singer and Celtic fan Rod Stewart crying in the stands after the final whistle.

Hoops boss Lennon, though, could hardly suppress his joy, saying: "I think it was one of the greatest nights in the club's recent history."
