Looks up to certain relations (8)

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'looks up to' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'certain relations' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but
'relations' could be 'res' (re is a kind of relation) and 'res' is found in the answer.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for respects that I've seen before include "Has high regard for spectres" , "what may be paid by callers" , "Polite regards" , "Pays proper attention to" , "Has high opinion of" .)
