Lennon aware of task facing Hoops


Neil Lennon has not given up hope of Celtic progressing to the last 32 of the Europa League with a win away to Udinese next month although he admits it will be a "tall order."

Following Wednesday night's 1-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid the Hoops now have to beat the Italian club on December 15 to leapfrog them into second place. But Celtic have won only once away from home in Europe in eight years - against Dinamo Moscow in 2009.

"It's a tall order," said Lennon. "Udinese are an excellent side and we haven't won away from home in a long while but we will give it everything we've got."
