Celtic Gave Us Chances, We Didn't Take Them, Lazio Star Laments

The 74-year-old artist was seen chanting 'Glasgow's green and white' with travelling fans in the Italian capital ahead of the group stage clash with Lazio.

"But we were not good, we were unable to capitalise on the opportunities we had". But in their bid to win nine in a row, playing more football after Christmas may have given Rangers the advantage - if Rangers fail to qualify.

"It's great to have qualified with two games to spare", Celtic manager Lennon told

Lazio had taken the lead after just seven minutes when Ciro Immobile's strike hit the back of Fraser Forster's net.

Off the pitch, there were sadly more incidents, with another Celtic fan stabbed on Thursday after the game, and it's clear everyone on this side of the Channel will be glad these matchups are over, so maybe it's time for certain Lazio ultras to put their hands down and use them to pray for their team's qualification out of Group E.

Second-half goals from Alfredo Morelos and Steven Davis fired Steven Gerrard's men second in Group G, three points ahead of Feyenoord after the Dutch side's 1-1 draw with Young Boys.

"I looked along at Peter Lawwell and I said "We're in trouble aren't we?' And he said 'Yes we are".

Wolves made it three straight Europa League wins despite Ruben Neves missing a penalty as Raul Jimenez's 92nd-minute goal grabbed a 1-0 success over Slovan Bratislava at Molineux. "This win was important".

No Celtic team had won in Italy before so it is an awesome achievement and fantastic to qualify out the group already.

Basle are also into the next stage where the top two in each of the 12 Europa League groups are joined by eight teams dropping out of the Champions League.
