Celtic: Fans take to Twitter to lambaste lineup after Cluj embarrassment

Celtic bowed out of the Champions League last night as they lost 4-3 at home to Romanian side CFR Cluj at the Third Qualifying Round stage, falling to a 5-4 aggregate defeat after drawing 1-1 in Romania last week.

Before the kick-off at Celtic Park, though, the fans were openly questioning the team that Neil Lennon had picked to take on what was their most important game of the season so far as they aimed to make it back to the Champions League group stages after missing out last year.

It will now be at least a two-year absence from the top European competition for the green and white Glasgow side.

Ultimately, the lineup that went out was a questionable one. Neither Christopher Jullien nor Boli Mbombo, the club’s new signings, started. Elsewhere, Scott Sinclair was left out completely, leaving the fans baffled.

The Hoops will now be dropping down to the Europa League where they’ll face either Sheriff Tiraspol or AIK in the play-off round, as per The Scottish Sun.
