Rennes 1 v 1 Celtic

Fantastic result but it's tinged with a little disappointment as i felt we had the more clear cut chances and for better refereeing would have won the game.

That's now 5 away games under Lennon in Europe this season, 3 wins and 2 draws, scoring 11 and conceding just 4.

For all the sheidt flung at our away record, it's been very good this year and if we can be formidable at home then we've got a terrific chance of progressing from this group.

MOTM for me was big Julien again, bit of nonsense said about him after Hamilton but once again he proved every bit the £7 million defender, solid as a rock and his use of the ball last night was exemplary.

Boli on the other hand was a bombscare again, caught out of position 3 or 4 times in the first half from diving in and his use of the ball was very poor. That said, he had one wonderful moment setting up the chance where Elyanouusi should have scored.

I thought he was good too, can see he's got bags of ability but lacking in match sharpness and i'm excited to see him when he's fully up to speed.

Eddy was good with his back to goal last night but his dive was shocking, absolutely no need for it tbh.

Christie was a buzz bomb but his use of the ball was poor at times and how many flooking times does he slip during a game?!!

Hammed wasn't as good as he has been but still solid enough.

Worst performance was from big Ajer, he needs to learn fast that you can't get that tight to good strong forwards because they'll roll you all day. There was actually 3 fouls in the one challenge, he did it in the 2nd half as well and got away with it.

Overall, very, very pleased with that and now looking forward to 3 games in 6 days, Killie, Partick and Hibs, 3 wins an absolute must and if we do then we're set up very well for the run to Xmas.

Happy Friday troops.

We should be beating Cluj at home....then it will set up a cracking double header against Lazio!! Ideally a Lazio win or a draw in the next game they play against Rennes. Will put us top if we beat Cluj then have the chance to really go for it against Lazio at home to put us in a great position

Lazio getting beat off Cluj

That spices the group up a fair bit.

I wonder if Lazio are really taking it seriously.

They left key players at home, Immobile, Luis Alberto and Radu.

Savic played the 90mins though and he is the main man.

Like I said about Rennes not being the world calss super team they were made out to be, Lazio are also an average side.

They finished 8th in the league last season, currently sitting 9th (though it's still early in the season)

Fully Expect Celtic to beat them comfortably at Parkhead and a good chance of a result over there too

That was the worst refereeing decision I have ever seen.

Three times he told then rennes players no card and then as the keeper gets up he turns round and sends bayo off.

Celtic need to appeal that as clearly the ref made a howler.

It was a terrific result and we were controlling the game for large parts.

A draw to start the group away from home against Rennes is good by any measure, with 2 homes to follow it we have it in our hands to be in great shape come the half way point of the fixtures.

Plaudits to NL and the team, the tactics were spot on and they could have won it with a bit more luck but I will take that result no problems.

We will have another 270 mins under our belts come Cluj at home.
