  1. ‘Football is about scoring’ – Rebrov

    FT: Celtic 1-2 Ferencvaros

    Ferencvaros manager Sergiy Rebrov has been giving his reaction to BBC Scotland’s Sportsound: “We have beaten one of the best teams we’ve played in qualification this year and last year.

    “We deserve this today. We knew the strength of the opponents, they controlled the ball. Most of the time we were defensive but football is about scoring goals. Up until the last minutes we were strong.”

  2. ‘It’s an exit that will cost them dear’

    Quote Message: You have to agree with what Lennon’s said, but its a shame he’s had to say it. It’s an exit that will cost them dear. We all know what the Champions League means to any club, but Celtic particularly at this time. £25-30m would have come in handy…

    You have to agree with what Lennon’s said, but its a shame he’s had to say it. It’s an exit that will cost them dear. We all know what the Champions League means to any club, but Celtic particularly at this time. £25-30m would have come in handy…

  3. ‘If you don’t want to be here, leave’

    FT: Celtic 1-2 Ferencvaros

    Asked what his message to his players is, Neil Lennon said: “We have to do better. Get your mentality right, get your attitude right, If some of you don’t want to be here, leave. Let us work with players who want to be here.”

    Asked if his impression was some players don’t want to be at the club, he responded: “In some cases.”

  4. ‘Anger and frustration’ for Lennon

    FT: Celtic 1-2 Ferencvaros

    Celtic manager Neil Lennon has been giving his reaction on Sportsound.

    “It’s anger and frustration,” he said. “The game was actually a lot easier than what I thought it was going to be, but we didn’t take our chances. We had plenty of them.

    “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.

    “It’s not fine going out at this stage of the competition, because we’re better than that.”

    Quote Message: You can create as many chances as you want. If you don’t have good defensive qualities in your team you’ll always be vulnerable. That’s been their Achilles heel all the time in Europe.

    That performance evokes memories of recent European exits. Last season against Cluj in the third qualifying round, Callum McGregor was played at full-back and Celtic collapsed late on as the Romanian’s counter-attacked their way to victory.

    Copenhagen did likewise to them in the Europa League last 32.

    Neil Lennon’s bold choice not to play a striker in the absence of Odsonne Edouard will come under close scrutiny.

  10. ‘Winning goal is an absolute shocker’

    Quote Message: The goals Celtic concede here in Europe… my goodness the winning goal tonight is an absolute shocker. Elhamed has had a nightmare. The cheapest of cheap goals. Yet again their defensive frailties have cost them. Celtic got what they deserved tonight. They should have learned their lesson from last season but they haven’t.

  11. Europa League awaits

    FT: Celtic 1-2 Ferencvaros

    Celtic had 28 shots on goal, but really a lot of them were from distance. They went behind to David Siger’s early rocket, but equalised in the second half through Ryan Christie’s deflected effort.

    They were the dominant side, but then lost a goal on the break to Tokmac Nguen, and couldn’t respond.

    As a result, it’s the glamour of the Europa League third qualifying round that awaits…

    The last time Celtic went out of the Champions League before the third qualifying round?

    In 2005, against Artmedia Bratislava.

  13. FULL-TIME – Celtic 1-2 Ferencvaros

    It’s only three days since Bayern Munich won last season’s Champions League, and Celtic are already out of this season’s.

    A hugely disappointing night for Neil Lennon’s side.

    Olivier Ntcham’s right-foot shot trundles through to Dibusz. Celtic look out of ideas.

    Callum McGregor gives away a free-kick in the middle of the pitch and gives the chance for the visitors to eat up some time.

    Jeremie Frimpong charges to the edge of the area, it was on to shoot but he tries to roll it to Albian Ajeti and the chance is gone.

    Celtic 1-2 Ferencvaros

    Ferencvaros are very well drilled at the back. They’re dealing with every Celtic ball that makes its way into their box.

    There are going to be FIVE MINUTES of stoppage time.

    It’s do or die for Celtic in the Champions League.
