    Definitely need to make more of an effort to get the stadium rocking.

    We have been spoiled over the last number of years 100% can’t disagree with that but we should not be getting beat 3-1 from Copenhagen and consequently knocked out of EL.

    Some people take their criticism too far but I can understand the frustration completely.

    Quite a few contributing factors to this result.
    Lennon got aspects of the tactics wrong. Rotated the system due to the losses of ntcham and christie but Griffiths should start for me.

    If we had taken our chances we would have been out of sight in this tie. You need to do this at this level. you look at chances edouard had in first leg. El yanoussi wont get better chance to score, griff straight at keeper who is scrambling to get off deck.

    I thought they worked really really hard, whilst not looking overly remarkable. Just grafted and got a cracking result. I genuinely think we are the better team and never turned up tonight.

    Killie aside, i think our defence has looked shaky in possession in recent weeks. Had chance to recruit in January and looked at the brazilian. Jozo just losing concentration when it mattered. Jozo for me could/should be moved on as i think that although he has been decent wen he has featured other than tonight, he cant be relied upon to stay fit.

    Cant be ignored, recruitment has been found wanting again. Board had a chance to add to the squad and give us a bit extra for both europe and domestic fronts. Teased at quality in Sporar. Soro and Klimala still nowhere near it. Might still prove to be successes, but in light of the fact that both have been so sparsely used, big failures atm. Recruitment still am area of concern despite Hammonds influence. This summer, recruitment will be hugely important.

    full concentration has to be in seeing out the league and going for the cup. Hopefully can get it right for the CL campaign next season.

    Gutted !! Always seen to lose stupid goals resulting from stupid mistakes. Truth is the tie could and should have been put to bed over in Copenhagen. Wrong formation and team selection tonight but we carry on, starting Sunday !! Can still be another history making season this year

    Playing one up front at home dies not show intent, we should have started with two upfront and had Kimala on the bench, attack is the best firm of defence, we looked more threatening when Griff came on.

    Copenhagen only got knocked out of CL by Red Star on penalties... after LITERALLY the whole team had taken one each! They are very comfortably 2nd in a reasonable league, and did well enough in their Europa League group... We'd no * given right to knock them out... they're one of the toughest non-seeds we could've gotten.

    It's a two way thing though mate, when the crowd is there the players have to give them something to cheer. First half we applied a lot of pressure but no real clear cut chances and second half we were awful. Place was bouncing after the penalty and then the players * it. Not exactly the crowds fault.

    The amount of chances we missed over the course of the two legs is inexcusable.

    It's a cliche but you have to take them at this level. Felt that after the first leg it could bite us on the * and by * it did.

    Even tonight, we were wasteful and were literally handed a way back into the match, which we proceeded to then * up.

    Terrible result.

    Copenhagen in contrast took near enough all their chances. They deserved to go through imo.

    Nothing at all to do with the huns going further I don’t care what they do and don’t care they are taking joy in it since it’s meaningless.

    I’m disappointed in the team performance over the two legs that's all . Should have been better.

    We got worse as the game went on and they got better. Brown was anonymous 2nd half didn’t look fit at all, worse game McGregor has had in a long time, so when them 2 aren’t at it and Jozo * up all sorts it was never going to end well.

    Team selection was wrong and the fact we kept playing ourselves into their press and letting them box us in that 2nd half was shocking.

    We missed Christie big time tonight as well, if he hadn’t been suspended I doubt Brown would of started since he looked nowhere near fit enough.

    Think Lenny Shat it tonight and should have went with two up front and I could see before half time jozo was a accident waiting to happen and Lenny should have saw that .
    He should had rogic off as well he hardly plays over the 65th minute and think he stayed on as bitton was our only midfielder on the bench and we spend 2 million on soro no where to be seen .
    Think our transfer window hasn't helped as we needed another centre half and our two signings in January are keeping sheved company in the stand a * joke .

    Just watched the highlights and didn’t even realise the chances we had. Sickening.

    We make a mockery of what once was Celtic Park on a European night. Did everything in our power to find a way to lose that tie over two legs.

    Team need to pick themselves up press the reset and continue winning on the domestic front couldn't really get a hold of the game last night were outfought in midfield and spurned chances both home and away,aided by a keeper who seemed to be in the right spot most of the time. Europe is done till next season had a great group stages but it's not to be for us this season.
