It’s A Small Country And I’m Going To Cry
Rod Stewart has expressed his frustration after Celtic were knocked out of the Champions League.

Rod Stewart has expressed his frustration after Celtic were knocked out of the Champions League.

Neil Lennon's side were ahead in the tie with just 14 minutes remaining, but ended up losing 4-3 on the night and 5-4 on aggregate.

Celebrity fan Stewart was unimpressed and believes Celtic didn't show their opposition enough respect.

Speaking on talkSPORT, Stewart said: “It’s very unusual for us not to have a great night at Celtic Park, but I think the reason was we took it took lightly. We thought we were going to win.

“I don’t understand why we didn’t have Christopher Jullien, a £7m player we’ve bought, and Boli Bolingoli, a £3m player, playing. Neither of them are playing – I don’t understand it!

“It’s just one of those days and we have to move on. We go into the Europa League now and let’s go for nine-in-a-row.

Celtic are never going to win the Champions League, we know that.

“It’s just income for us, and we blew £30m last night by not qualifying.

“They won’t win it again unless we can get into the English league somehow, earn the sort of money Sky can pay, afford the sort of players Arsenal and Tottenham and all the others can buy.

“Us spending £7m is a big deal – how are we ever going to win the Champions League playing £7m for a player?

“We haven’t got the players and we can’t afford the players.

“It’s a small country and I’m going to cry!”
