Celtic’s majority shareholder Dermot Desmond has said that Celtic can go from strength to strength under Neil Lennon, following the side’s Champions League win in Moscow.
Desmond welcomed the win at the highest level and said that it could represent a “turning point” for Celtic.
“It’s great for Scottish football, great for Celtic supporters and hopefully they can kick on and improve from here,” the businessman told STV.
The first away win in the competition’s group stages is a result of improvements made across the board by Lennon and chief executive Peter Lawwell, he believes.
“I think we have a better squad now, we’ve got a lot of talent there and we will continue to improve the squad,” Desmond said.
“Neil Lennon is certainly guiding them to better performances and there’s a good bonding between the players.
“Under Peter’s stewardship of the club all areas like scouting and sports science are improving.
“We will do our best [to reach the knockout stages] and everybody will give 100%. We can’t really determine the outcome at this point in time but it’s a great turning point for the club and I think it’s a tipping point for Neil and his team and hopefully they’ll go from strength to strength here.”
