Neil Lennon wants Celtic to use their Scottish Cup win over St Mirren as a boost going into their Champions League game with Juventus.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has insisted that his side's Scottish Cup win over St Mirren can give them a boost going into their Champions League last-16 tie with Juventus.

Lennon's men beat St Mirren 2-1 to advance to the semi-finals.

Their manager wants them to continue the form and finish on a high, despite being 3-0 down from the first leg against the Italian champions.

"Psychologically, today will give them a big lift going into this game and it's very much one to look forward to," Lennon told BBC Radio Scotland.

"To go there and win would be a tremendous way to end the campaign. We want to make it look like the scoreline at Celtic Park was a little bit flattering towards Juventus.

"We felt there wasn't much between the teams although they do have a lot of class in their side. We'd like to go and compete, and try to win the tie."

Celtic face Juventus on Wednesday evening at 7.45pm.
