Lennon: 'Celtic can do well at Milan'

Celtic manager Neil Lennon remains ‘confident we can put in a good performance’ against Milan in the Europa League tomorrow.

It kicks off at San Siro at 17.55 GMT, with the Scottish side already eliminated in last place.

This early European exit and recent poor performances domestically have prompted fan protests.

“I'll still try and put a strong team out and see how the game goes and maybe give the squad some much-needed game time as well,” said Lennon in his press conference.

“We're confident that we can go to Italy and put in a good performance, whether we win the game or not, it's all about the performance and if we can get a result that would be great, and then we can build from there.”

The current Scottish champions are without Mohamed Elyounoussi and James Forrest, but Jeremie Frimpong returns from suspension.

Shane Duffy and Christopher Jullien require fitness tests.

“We need to find that little extra zest and zing,” continued the coach. “The body language of the players was good. They are trying to find solutions as we all are. But we have to end this run, we have to get back to being consistent.”

Milan had won 3-1 at Celtic Park last time out.
