Neil Lennon is facing heavy criticism for his team selection after Celtic crashed out of the Champions League.
Neil Lennon is facing heavy criticism for his team selection after Celtic crashed out of the Champions League. The Bhoys missed out against Romanian side CFR Cluj after a 4-3 loss on the night and a 5-4 aggregate defeat.
Celtic returned to Glasgow with a 1-1 scoreline from the first leg after James Forrest got the away goal. But that away goal was matched on 27 minutes and Cluj took a 1-0 lead into the second half.
In a turbulent second period, Forrest and Odsonne Edouard pulled Celtic back in front but Bilal Omrani’s penalty made it 3-3 with Cluj leading on away goals. Ryan Christie quickly restored Celtic’s lead but Omrani put the visitors level moments later.
With Celtic chasing a late goal to avoid an away goals defeat, George Tucudean sealed the victory with a late strike. It was a catastrophic night for Celtic and Lennon faced backlash.
His decision to play Callum McGregor at left-back was widely scrutinised. Boli Bolingoli sat on the bench while McGregor – arguably Celtic’s best midfielder – was forced to play at full-back.
Here are some tweets from Celtic fans who were shocked at that decision.
