Neil Lennon believes he is on the cusp of his greatest achievement as Celtic manager as he prepares for Wednesday night's Champions League Group G decider against Spartak Moscow at Parkhead.

The Hoops had to fight their way through two qualifying rounds and were then unfancied when drawn alongside the Russian club, Benfica and Barcelona. However, with seven points from five games, including a famous 2-1 home win over the Catalan giants, the Scottish champions will go through to the last 16 if they get a better result against bottom-placed Spartak than Benfica get in the Nou Camp.

The former Celtic skipper, who became boss of the Parkhead club in 2010, said: "It would be my best achievement as a manager here."
