It was a memorable night for the Celtics as they suffered a shock defeat to Bodo / Gilmet in their first Europa Conference League tie.

Far from looking like potential winners, as Ange Postecoglou suggested they might be, the Hoops lost 3-1 in their worst performance in recent months.

Credit should go to Kjetil Knutsen who once again proved that they are not mugs (as if there is any doubt – just ask Jose Mourinho and Roma).

Here’s a look at some of the highlights of the disappointing night at Parkhead.


Joe Hart: The keeper was left exposed by the defense as the Norwegians took an early lead and then saw their Celtic rear guard fall at crucial moments in the second half. 5

Josep Juranovic: Sometimes Celtic got out at their own pace and then flogged a brilliant cross for a goal by Dyson Maida. The Croatians were the best in the Celtic back four. 6

Cameron Carter Wickers: He suffered a gunshot wound in an air strike, but Bodo’s attacks also caused him headaches. It’s been a tough night for Celtic but for Spurs borrowers. 5

Carl Starfelt: The ball was dragged as runner Espjord slipped for the opener. Sweden’s passing was not very good and even after good form was not convincing. 5

Greg Taylor: The stormy start in the second half ended with Ola Solbakin’s skin when Bodo made it 2-0. It was a nightmare to forget for a left back. 4

Mat O’Riley: Celtic were the best players in the Euro Debut and the first half. Morten Wegorst, Denmark’s assistant, saw him bidding for a late World Cup call. Cause 5

McGregor column: The usual energetic display in the middle of the park. Plugged the space and tried to get to Celtic but failed due to a blockage in the third part of Bodo. 6



Tom Rojak: I saw the speed from the beginning. Slow performance from Greater Australia, which could not move forward. Celtic misses its usual creative spark. On the hour. 4

Lail worship: In the first half he got a lot of crossing position but his last ball was bad. Lost a good chance to go down 2-0 before giving up on the hour mark. 4

Disney table: The Japanese striker was full of running but did not get enough service until Celtic’s goal in the second half. The work rate was excellent. 6

Juta: Saw enough ball but Bodo switched on and limited space. During the second half he shifted to the right wing and unfortunately with the drive. 5

Green: ریو ہٹتے (4) Surprisingly left on the bench and could not make a big impact in the last half hour. Georges Giacomax (3) The great Greek striker prepared himself but did not really smell the round. James Forrest (3) The last throw of the dice when Celtic tasted everything on the Norwegians.
