Celtic manager Neil Lennon has admitted that being drawn against Barcelona in the Champions League is "exciting".

The SPL Champions will line up in Group G with the Spanish giants alongside Benfica and Spartak Moscow.

"It's very exciting to be in a group with Barcelona," said Lennon.

"It's a tough, tough group. All the teams play good football, so it should be quite attractive to watch.

"We're familiar with all three teams. Under Gordon [Strachan] we played Barcelona and Benfica, and we also knocked out Moscow in a playoff."

Celtic overcame Swedish side Helsingborg to reach the group stages.
