Celtic 0-2 Legia Warsaw (Agg: 1-6) –  Champions League Qualifying – 6th August 2014

After losing 4-1 away in Poland in the first leg, it was always going to be difficult for Celtic to keep their Champions League hopes alive at Murrayfield. However, to go down 2-0 on home soil will have many Hoops’ fans already questioning the wisdom of new boss Ronny Deila.

Michal Zyro and Michal Kucharczyk were the scorers for Henning Berg’s side who looked comfortable against a lacklustre Celtic side.

The result means the Bhoys miss out on Champions League proper football for the first time in three seasons and that failure to mix it with Europe’s big boys will also be a huge financial blow to the Scottish giants. While one wonders if some of the club’s star players will now start looking for a move elsewhere.

The club can still qualify for the Europa League but going down 6-1 on aggregate to inferior opposition is sure to hurt the Celtic faithful.

    Not sure how you can call a Legia team inferior to Celtic. Kicking them in the junk over two legs and 6-1 is no mere coincidence. Legia is for real, Celtic are clowns.

    Inferior – great journalism

    Didn’t Celtic complain before the tie that they are too big a club to play in the qualifiers and should go straight into the competition proper? Try getting there before claiming to be good enough to be there…
