Celtic and CFR Cluj played one another in the Champions League qualifiers last month and will face off with each other yet again in the group stage of the Europa League.

The Hoops met the Romanian club in the third round of Champions League qualifying in early August in what turned out to be a hugely disappointing tie for Neil Lennon’s side.
Having secured a 1-1 draw in the first leg away from home, Celtic then lost the return leg 3-4 in front of their own fans to end their hopes of Champions League group stage qualification.
After overcoming AIK in the Europa League play-offs, they will soon be reacquainted with CFR Cluj, who lost to Slavia Prague in the Champions League play-offs to instead enter the Europa League group stage.
These Celtic fans on Twitter weren’t best pleased to be met with further reading about CFR Cluj so soon after last month’s defeat:
