Celtic winger Aiden McGeady believes qualifying for the last 16 of this season´s Champions League would be a greater achievement than their breakthrough success last term.

Gordon Strachan´s men will guarantee their passage to the knockout stages if they avoid defeat in the San Siro on Tuesday against AC Milan, and McGeady feels the Hoops are under pressure to meet the high standards they set for themselves last time out when they succeeded where more expensively-assembled Celtic sides had failed.

"I think it would be a bigger achievement due to the fact that everyone was expecting it this season after what we did last season," McGeady said. "Nobody expected us to qualify last season so that was unbelievable, but there was pressure on us this year to qualify by beating Spartak Moscow and then qualify for the last 16."
