Reaction as Celtic thrash Nomme Kalju in Champions League


The second leg is in Tallinn next Tuesday, and Celtic boss Neil Lennon should probably get the boots again on for that one if he fancied, given his side’s handsome lead. Tomorrow, we have the Europa League movement with Aberdeen in Georgia in opposition to Chikhura Sachkere, even as Rangers host antique foes, Progres Niederkorn, looking to avenge their notorious humbling of 2017.

Good night, and thanks for your organization.

When asked if Arsenal’s interest in Celtic defender Kieran Tierney has become useless, Neil Lennon replies: “I’ve no idea. The Premier League membership has had bids for Tierney rejected. You never say by no means on anything simply,” Lennon adds. “I’ve not been advised any different from the 2 bids that have been rejected.

Celtic supervisor Neil Lennon on BBC Radio Scotland: “I enjoyed the dreams and amazing attacking play. The players expressed themselves; that is a splendid indicator early in the season. It’s a fantastic overall performance and an outstanding wine. On Leigh Griffiths’ brilliant first-half loose kick, Lennon added: “You constantly assume he will hit the target or make the goalkeeper make a save. It’s a first-rate ability he has; he’s a natural-born goalscorer. You can see he’s nevertheless a bit quick in his conditioning, but the reception he was given ultimate week after which tonight should mean the world to him. It’s high-quality. He was given the season off with a goal.

Hearts survived a scare at Tynecastle to take over on the pinnacle of Group A. Stenhousemuir defended doggedly, which greatly surprised the home enthusiasts when Mark McGuigan shot them into a 77th-minute lead.
Craig Halkett was then thrown up front as the desperate hosts piled on the pressure, and the tactic worked a treat, with the defender scoring two times inside the last eight minutes.

We needed to paintings a long way too difficult; we overlooked such a lot of possibilities,” says manager Craig Levein. It might have been one of those nights when we began feeling sorry for ourselves. Despite lacking all these changes, Levein says he has no hobby in bringing Kyle Lafferty back to the club after his launch from Rangers. A marathon shoot-out on the Excelsior Stadium, with the goalies each on the right track. The Diamonds will eventually be triumphant 12-11 for the bonus point. Partick Thistle is in front at Group F after their win over Clyde at Firhill.

Celtic still has a second leg to barter in Tallinn next week, but I think we can dare to look a bit further ahead. Will it be Cluj or Maccabi Tel Aviv in the penultimate qualifying round? The Romanian champions gained at home earlier this nighttime thanks to a Bill Omran header, and the equal participant squandered an awesome threat in the second half.

Leigh Griffiths became announced as the man-of-the-match at Celtic Park, which can also have been slightly skewed via sentiment because the striker scored on his first start of 2019. It became quite an aim, too, a peach of an unfastened kick curled into the pinnacle corner.

Ryan Christie and Callum McGregor also scored excellent dreams and bossed the midfield in a one-sided contest. However, I’m positive they will each be satisfied to see their crew-mate rewarded after a hard time on the sidelines.
