Neil Lennon believes his side have hit top form just in time for their crucial Europa League clash with Atletico Madrid at Parkhead on Wednesday.

The rejuvenated Hoops go into the penultimate Group I game with five straight wins following the 5-0 thrashing of Dunfermline in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League at Celtic Park. Celtic are in third place behind the Spanish club and Italian outfit Udinese with five points from four games but could go top of the table with a win.

Having watched striker Gary Hooper help himself to a hat-trick against the Pars, Lennon looked ahead to the Atletico clash, saying: "It is a game we can't afford to lose. A draw might not be enough but if we win it, it puts us in a great position."
