As Neil Lennon turns his attention to Celtic’s Europa League group opener against AC Milan, he might recall the exasperation he felt after the club’s last two games against the famous Rossoneri.

During his first spell – a year after humbling Barcelona – Lennon’s side faced the Italian giants in the Champions League group stage and lost both meetings.

Unlucky, but undone late on in San Siro, before profligate finishing – particularly by Virgil van Dijk – in the return left Lennon scratching his head as they lost 3-0 in Glasgow and exited the tournament.

That was Lennon’s final European home match of his first spell as Celtic boss but, remarkably, it was also AC Milan’s last victory in the Champions League. Remarkable because they have lifted the European Cup seven times in their illustrious history. Only Real Madrid have won it more often.
