CFR Cluj v Celtic: What has been said?

Celtic boss Neil Lennon: “We have got a bit of momentum, we had a great result at the weekend.

“All that will give us is a bit of impetus going into the weekend. It will have no real relevance on Wednesday night, but psychologically it’s good for the players to have a win and a performance like that going into such an important game.

“This is a totally different animal. This is Europe, away from home, against the Romanian champions. We are very motivated, obviously, but we are very wary and respectful of the opposition.

“We come here in good form, Cluj are in good form, so I think the tie is pretty even.”
