His Celtic side had just recorded a remarkable victory in Moscow, the club's first away win in the group stages of European football's elite club competition.
It was a moment he wanted to savour. "I am probably the proudest man in Europe tonight," said Lennon. "I cannot speak highly enough of the players. They played magnificent football at a very tough venue against an excellent side. They showed great character and fortitude to come back. I thought we thoroughly deserved to win."
