Neil Lennon breathed a sigh of relief watching the Europa League draw this afternoon.

Not because he expects Celtic's tie with Copenhagen to be a cake-walk.

He certainly doesn't. 

But having dodged big-hitters like Bayer Leverkusen and Roma, the Hoops manager allowed himself to think about a winnable double-header between Denmark and Glasgow that won't worry his players.

They've beaten Lazio, dispatched of Rennes. Scalped Cluj.

All the more reason for Lennon to be optimistic.

"I think it's a good draw, considering there might've been some bigger perceived teams in the draw," he told Celtic TV this afternoon.

"Copenhagen are second in the league and have great European pedigree but it probably won't faze us and one we can look forward to.

"I think it's always good to have the second-leg at home because we'll know what we have to take back to Glasgow.

"It's important we perform well in the away league.

"Their league splits up and they'll have a two-month break which may or may not work to our advantage.

"Logistically there's not much travelling to do so we'll look forward to it."

He added: "[Celtic] have been brilliant in the Europa League so far but it's not for another two months which is a lifetime in football.

"We'll see what the occasion brings and how strong we'll be. We've had a great campaign so far and we want to improve on that."
