FROM NEIL DOHERTY: NEIL Lennon basked in the glory of Celtic’s Champions League success and then declared he wouldn’t minding basking in some sunshine….in Malaga!FC Malaga are one of the other 16 teams joining Celtic in the knock-out stages of the tournament after Celtic’s win over Spartak Moscow at Paradise.Lennon said he wouldn’t say no to a Battle of Britain clash with Man United. Then he joked: “I would take Malaga – it would be nice this time of the year over there!”He went on: “It means the world to me as a young manager in my first year in the Champions League to qualify with 10 points, I am very proud of the players, they have performed a miracle.“People laughed at me when I said at the start that my target was to qualify.“No one gave us a prayer going into this group but we have qualified and deservedly so. I think you could see the players progressing last year. “We have some really talented players who I felt could play at European level.“I didn’t want them just to be remembered for beating Barcelona but we have beaten Barcelona and qualified for the last-16 and that is a fantastic feather to have in your cap.”“Seriously, it is going to be really tough, against the top teams in the groups.“You just don’t know what shape teams are going to be in two or three months’ time. But we are there, we are going to enjoy it and we want to progress as far as we can in the competition.“Who knows where it can take you? “The spirit is fantastic, we have some quality players, they have put everything into the group and they have grown as the campaign has gone on and some of them have enhanced their reputations no end.“The draw is on the 20th and it is something that we look forward to, I just want them to concentrate on domestic duties now.”Lennon was seen hiding in the dug-out when Commons stepped up to score the winner.“I didn’t watch it, I turned my back on it,” said the Armagh man. “I’d seen the last couple of penalties and we missed them. I saw Gary Parker (coach) turn his back and so I thought I would wait until the roar goes up.“Kris showed great mental strength to take it, I’m sure he was aware of the significance of the penalty but I thought he had a fantastic game.Spartak caretaker coach Valery Karpin was magnanimous in defeat.He said: “I would like to congratulate Celtic, they deserved it because they have had a very good Champions League campaign.“The referee blew his whistle for a penalty so it was a penalty.“The first half was the probably the best we have played in a long time, so it is disappointing to lose matches when you play well.“In the second half the three midfielders who were supporting the striker were not so influential.“But I cannot blame any of our players, I have to thank them and the fans who came to Glasgow to support us when the game did not mean anything to us.”THE HOOPS REPORT: ANYONE FANCY A TRIP TO MALAGA?

ASK HAPPY HOOP LENNON
By Doug Padilla STAFF WRITER BOSTON – Vladimir Guerrero’s right arm is feeling better, a development that opens a variety of lineup options. A day after struggling for any kind of offense against a Boston Red Sox starter, the Angels are about to make a number of changes that could get things going. “I spent so much time in the National League playing right field that it feels like I’m home playing right field,” Guerrero said through broadcaster Jose Mota, who was serving as interpreter. “This situation in the American League as the DH had to happen, but it’s just a familiarity to play right field.” A likely lineup would be to bat Figgins first, followed by Orlando Cabrera, Guerrero, Garret Anderson, Rivera/Morales (depending on who gets the DH spot), Casey Kotchman, Howie Kendrick, Izturis and Jeff Mathis in the ninth spot. That lineup best alternates right-handed and left-handed hitters. Mathis is expected to take over at catcher for Mike Napoli. Anderson should play Anderson’s right eye still looked severely swollen Thursday because of conjunctivitis (pink eye), but he is expected to play tonight. Scioscia said he trusts Anderson’s judgment even though Anderson said after Wednesday’s game that his eye is “not where it should be.” Anderson went 0-for-4 against Beckett in Game 1, but did fly out to the warning track in center during his final at-bat. Anderson declined Thursday to talk about his eye. “Unless something unforeseen happens, he’s a guy who has been swinging the bat as well as anybody in baseball for the last 200-300 at-bats and we need him to contribute,” Scioscia said. “Obviously if his eye is not where it needs to be, it’s something to consider. But it’s not at that point.” Escobar as calm as ever Kelvim Escobar was busy downloading stories about Game 1 on his iPhone before Thursday’s workout and hardly gave the appearance of somebody under pressure. Escobar, who won a career-high 18 games this season, will take the mound tonight and try to give the Angels a split of the two games at Boston. A defeat would put the Angels in a 2-0 hole and force them to take the last three games in order to advance. “I feel like I have to go out there and bring my `A’ game,” Escobar said. “It’s not pressure or I feel like everything is on my shoulders. It’s a team effort and we all have to go out there and give our best.” Fans reward Remy Broadcaster and former Boston second baseman Jerry Remy beat a handful of “regular fans” in a landslide in voting for “President of Red Sox Nation.” Remy received 39,120 votes from the more than 70,000 that came in by Internet, text messaging and postcard over a four-day period that ended Tuesday. Remy, who also played for the Angels during his 10-year career, threw out the ceremonial first pitch Wednesday. After lobbing the ball to backup catcher Doug Mirabelli, Remy went over to the front row and shook hands with team chairman Tom Werner.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas CityGuerrero, who hasn’t played right field since Sept.4 because of an inflamed right triceps, is expected to make his long-awaited return to the outfield tonight. Chone Figgins is expected to be moved to center field so that Maicer Izturis can stay in the lineup and play third base. Those moves will force rookie Reggie Willits to the bench. Willits played center field in the AL Division Series opener Wednesday. The only decision remaining will come at designated hitter. Kendry Morales would be able to bat left-handed against Red Sox starter Daisuke Matsuzaka, but Juan Rivera is also an option. “We’ll look at a couple things,” Manager Mike Scioscia said. “Daisuke against lefties and righties, there’s not a huge variance. It’s not like there’s a 100-point swing and you go with one guy or another. We’ll take a look at a couple things.” Guerrero said he is not rushing himself back to right just to open more options for Scioscia. His only reason for returning is that his arm finally feels better. He prefers to play out there anyway, because that is what he is used to.
