Celtic Crash Out Of Champions League To Hungarian Side

Celtic Crash Out Of Champions League To Hungarian Side

Celtic's nightmare August continued tonight as they limped out of the Champions League after an embarrassing 2-1 defeat at home to Hungarian giants Ferencvaros. Managed by former Spurs and Ukranian striker Sergei Rebrov, the Hungarian champions had already beaten their Swedish counterparts Djurgarden at home to seal an away one legged affair with Celtic.

Celtic's preparations were not helped by Odsonne Edouard missing out with injury and recent signing from West Ham Ajleti, only fit enough for the bench. Things got worse as they were one down after seven minutes, although Ryan Christie who was playing in Edouard's place, equalised at the start of the second half. However Celtic conceded in the 75th minute and the Hungarians ended up winning 2-1.

After the match, Neil Lennon struggled to explain the defeat.

"We seem to have made the same mistakes as last year," Lennon said.

"The first goal we can maybe legislate a little bit, the second goal is really poor decision-making.

"It's individual mistakes. It's cost us against Copenhagen and it's cost us again tonight."

Lennon was criticised for not starting a striker.
