Watch: Rennes Fans Praised After Superb Celtic Atmosphere During Europa League Tie

Celtic secured top spot in Europa League Group E with a strong 3-1 win over Rennes at Parkhead on Thursday night.

Lewis Morgan, Ryan Christie and substitute Mikey Johnston all scored to move Neil Lennon's side onto 13 points.

In the buildup to the game, there has been plenty of discussion surrounding Celtic's decision to close a section of their ground which holds ultra fangroup, Green Brigade. The move came after various fines from UEFA.

Yet the fans that were in attendance combined with 2,500 travelling Rennes supporters to create a striking atmosphere.

Speaking post-match, Neil Lennon cut a content figure as he reflected on the night.

“It was a great performance and a superb campaign. We had qualified already but to win the group with a game to spare is great.

“The players gave me everything and more in this campaign. It’s great for the club."
