Defeating the imposing might of Barcelona would prove the crowning moment in Celtic's 125th anniversary celebrations, according to manager Neil Lennon.

"This would be the crowning glory in that year" - Neil Lennon
The Scottish Champions take on the Catalan side in their latest Group G encounter at Celtic Park on Wednesday evening.

Barcelona currently lead the group by as many as five points and know that even a draw would be sufficient to guarantee their progress into the knockout stages.

But Celtic are the next best placed club and still have a couple of home games to come, including this latest one.

"It's a pivotal year for us and a year of celebration," he added. "This would be the crowning glory in that year."
