'Crazy', 'suicidal' - Lennon reacts as Celtic suffer Champions League elimination

14 Août, 2019, 09:24 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion
  • Johnston is used to the Champions League qualifiers these days

After leading 1-0, 2-1, and 3-2, which would have been enough to take them through, the Scottish champions conceded twice to end their hopes.

Lennon's men will now face either Sheriff Tiraspol of Moldova, or AIK of Sweden in the Europa League play-off round.

But a Cirpian Deac header meant the Hoops went in at half-time behind on aggregate.

Celtic got themselves level soon after when Callum McGregor's low cross was dummied brilliantly by Odsonne Edouard before James Forrest stayed calm to eventually find the top corner from just yards out.

But they were pegged back again with 16 minutes left when Billel Omrani's penalty gave Cluj the lead on away goals.

Scottish Premiership champions Celtic are among a host of European giants to be knocked out of the Champions League during the third qualifying round, while last season's semi-finalists Ajax needed a late comeback to edge past Greek side PAOK.

Lennon blasted his players after the defeat, insisting their defending was suicidal at times.

"The morale in the squad is excellent at the moment and we are playing some nice football, but to go through in Glasgow, it's a miracle we need".

That being said, Celtic should be the favourites, with an away goal in the bank, and the firepower from middle to front, we should see Celtic score a couple of goals.

"You've got to do the basics well - you've got to stop crosses, close people down, get your head on things - and it was nearly as if we scored and wanted to switch off and control the game". It's suicidal the goals we gave away.

"The first goal, we got a warning before that, and we still didn't stop the cross and the guy's got across for a run".

"We had the lead and we let it slip through our own decision-making really".
