A ‘Bitterly Disappointed’ Neil Lennon Says Celtic ‘Shot Themselves in the Foot’

Celtic boss Neil Lennon admits he’s bitterly disappointed with his side’s Europa League exit against FC Copenhagen – and says his players shot themselves in the foot against their Danish opponents.

The Hoops were firm favourites to progress to the last-16 of the competition after last week’s 1-1 draw away from home, and played well in the first-half of Thursday night’s second-leg in Glasgow.

However, Celtic were made to pay for their variety of spurned chances, with Copenhagen pulling-off a stunning 3-1 victory at Parkhead – thanks in no small part to several errors from the home side’s defence.

Speaking to the media after the match, Lennon stayed calm, and refused to scapegoat any of his players, but he simply couldn’t hide from how big a blow this result is:

With their European campaign over for another season, Celtic now travel to St Johnstone on Sunday for their Scottish Cup quarter-final, but what do you make of this result and Lennon’s post-match comments?
