Even the most optimistic Celtic fan would have struggled to foresee a way they progress out of Group B of the Champions League. A monster group featuring both PSG and Bayern Munich ensured it was a tall order and they dutifully failed to deliver.
Tonight their campaign came to a disappointing end, a 1-0 loss to Anderlecht meaning they bow out with just 3 points and a monumental -13 goal difference.
#Celtic have lost all three home games in the Champions League group stage for the first time in the club’s history.

Pretty grim stuff from Celtic tonight. They are into the Europa League but won’t be in it for long with performances as inspid as that one.

If your boyfriend is on the train from the east end to the city centre just now he’s sitting here with a Celtic top crying like a little baby please come and collect him

Fantastic to have #Celtic European Football after Christmas again.
Let’s hope Santa brings us a quality experienced centreback!

League Cup winners, unbeaten domestically and in Europe after Christmas. Disgraceful right enough…

If you're interested, they are 66/1 for the Europa League...
