Celtic through to Champions League last 16

Kris Commons celebrates with teammate Charlie Mulgrew

Celtic have made it through to the last 16 of the Champions League for only the third time.

Manager Neil Lennon said his team had "performed a miracle", beating Spartak Moscow 2-1 on Wednesday.

"No-one gave us a prayer going into this group, but we have qualified and deservedly so," the proud manager said.

Celtic were drawn in a group alongside top teams Benfica and Barcelona, and a Spartak Moscow side that has spent more than £35m on their squad.

Gary Hooper's strike and a Kris Commons penalty gave Celtic the win.

Celtic could face Manchester United in the next round, who qualified despite losing their final match.
