Neil Lennon and his players watched the draw at Lennoxtown
Custom byline text:
His Celtic players fanned out behind him, a little self-consciously given that the Lennoxtown canteen is usually a sanctuary but for once had to be shared with photographers, television cameras and reporters. From Paddy McCourt and Charlie Mulgrew in the front row, to Kris Commons and Kelvin Wilson leaning against the wall, to Fraser Forster in the doorway and Emilio Izaguirre fiddling with his smartphone in the corridor, they had gathered to watch television. It was 5pm, Sky Sports News was about to broadcast the Champions League group draw and the players squeezed in to see it. The almost boyish enthusiasm was infectious. When Sky flashed up the bookies' odds – Celtic 300/1 to win the cup – Lennon gave a good-natured laugh.
