Celtic manager Neil Lennon has stated the belief that Celtic deserve more respect after his side's 3-2 away Champions League win over Spartak Moscow.
The Hoops claimed a crucial victory when Greece international Giorgos Samaras headed home a late goal to give his team a 3-2 lead.
"I think people underestimate Celtic," said Lennon after the game. "I don't think we get the respect we deserve but maybe last night's performance might change a few attitudes."
He continued: "We just have to play Barcelona home and away... But it was a huge step for the club. It was our first away win in the Champions League so we have broken a record."
Nevertheless, the Celtic boss warned that there was still 'a lot of football to be played'. The SPL champions currently sit in second position, behind Barcelona, in Group G of the competition, but Lennon insisted that it was still 'an open group'.
He said: "We have two home games and Benfica and Barcelona away so it is still an open group for second place as far as I am concerned.
"It is fantastic but there is a lot of football to be played in the group," concluded Lennon.
