Shame that Limassol couldn't maintain the lead against Zenit, I don't really want to face Bilbao in the next round.

Feyenoord practically eliminated, hopefully that eases the Clasie signing.

Bilbao has been picked clean over the past few years. They don't scare me that much.

They're still a good team nonetheless and playing at San Mames is incredibly difficult, that place is a freaking fortress.

DEMBA BA WITH THE BRACE! Very Happy

Hat-trick for Demba. This is done.

Now come to Porto, Clasie. Please.

I see Ba is doing well in Turkey already.

Let's be real, Athletic Bilbao is more worried about drawing Arsenal than Arsenal is about drawing Bilbao. They're the best team out of the 5 we could face so I'd obviously rather us end up with something more straightforward like Standard Liege, but we'd get through Bilbao if that's what it came to. I'd actually like to see what they could do in the Champions League so hopefully they get an easier draw, I think as long as they avoid Napoli or Arsenal they should be in good shape to make it to the group stage.

Bye bye Celtic...

It's true, the semi-pro team from Ireland is better than the mighty Bhoys

No wonder Lennon left when he did.

Legia weren't even particularly impressive, Celtic were just that bad. With defending like that, they'll be lucky to qualify for the Europa League.

Yeah, Legia were just ok...Nothing special


This goal pretty much shows why Celtic lost

btw, I can't believe Forster is considered a good keeper, and Virgil a good CB...

I don't think I've ever seen such bad defending from Celtic. I'm gutted we aren't in the Scottish Premier this year as that team is vulnerable. Not that Rangers are much better right now.

It will be a long season for them despite the fact they should coast the league. The only thing that made their fans turn up was the CL games. Their stadium will be like a ghost town again this year.

Forster is only rated as highly because he is English and he had one good game against Barcelona. He is a decent shot stoppier, but for a guy taller than most, he cannot come and claim a cross. I don't really know much about Van Dijk.

Celtic players are always insanely rated by the Scottish media, without good reason. In the past there's been rumours that Izzaguirre and Kayal were off to Man United as they were "great players" and would command "massive fees". Both are still there. You learn not to pay attention.

Celtic getting hammered is a bad day for Scottish football overall.

Don't see how they are going to recover in Europe until Rangers/Hibs/Hearts get themselves organised and get back into the top league to provide Celtic a constant challenge.
