Celtic Earn A Point On The Road In Rennes
Ryan Christie's second-half penalty earned Celtic a 1-1 draw with Rennes in their opening Europa League group game in France after they held on with 10 men in a frantic finale.

Ryan Christie's second-half penalty earned Celtic a 1-1 draw with Rennes in their opening Europa League group game in France after they held on with 10 men in a frantic finale.

The Scottish champions fell behind to a spot-kick from M'Baye Niang in the 37th minute after some rash defending from Kristoffer Ajer.

Celtic had a strong claim of their own rejected before James Forrest was fouled in the box and Christie converted in the 59th minute.

Neil Lennon's side showed plenty of attacking intent and were well worth their point in Brittany but they had to survive a man down after late substitute Vakoun Bayo received two yellow cards in quick succession.

Jullien Insists Celtic Have A Winning Mentality
He's not making one of those bold predictions that end up coming back to haunt so many players, but Christopher Jullien is a positive frame of mind about his side's upcoming European adventures.


He's not making one of those bold predictions that end up coming back to haunt so many players, but Christopher Jullien is a positive frame of mind about his side's upcoming European adventures.

The towering French defender arrived at Celtic from Toulouse for a cool £7m in the summer and has been impressed with the mentality that manager Neil Lennon has instilled in his team.

The Hoops are gearing up for the group stages of the Europa League, where they will take on Rennes, Lazio and Champions League adversaries Cluj and while the 26-year-old is in no doubt that not one of them will be a walkover, he's convinced that they have enough to progress.
