Celtic manager Neil Lennon insists that there is "still a lot to play for" in his side's Champions League qualifying tie with Helsingborg, despite securing a 2-0 win in the away leg last night.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has insisted that his side must take nothing for granted in the second leg of their Champions League qualifier with Helsingborg next week.

Goals from Kris Commons and Georgios Samaras gave the Hoops a 2-0 away win in Sweden last night, but Lennon is determined to avoid complacency in the return match.

"There is still a lot to play for in the tie as far as I am concerned," he said. "I don't think it's over although our home record is very, very good.

"There was enough there to worry me as Helsingborg were very impressive. But in the end we hit the bar twice and, on the counter-attack, we could have put the tie well out of sight."

The second leg will take place at Parkhead on Wednesday, August 29.
