Conte gives Celtic 'greatest respect'

Juventus boss Antonio Conte has claimed that he will not underestimate Celtic as the two were drawn together in the last 16 of the Champions League.

The Bianconeri will travel to Glasgow to face Neil Lennon's side on Tuesday February 12, before hosting the Hoops on March 6.

And the 43-year-old Coach has admitted that the Scottish side will be tough opponents.

“Celtic are a good team,” he told reporters. “They qualified from a group that involved Barcelona, Spartak Moscow and Benfica.

“They have good players like Giorgios Samaras and Kris Commons.

“We will go to this game with great enthusiasm, with the greatest respect for the Scots and will try to do our best.”
