Anonymous: "This is a blessing in disguise. Could you imagine playing Real Madrid with this team. Ronny no dae that."

Gregg the Red, Glasgow: "Why do you assume a very poor Celtic side will win the league ? We will run them close."


What now for Fraser Forster? The England cap has been heavily linked with Southampton and tonight's result may hasten the goalkeeper's departure from Celtic Park.


Robert Spencer: "#bbcsportscot who could Celtic be paired with in the Europa league and will they be seeded. Could they get Everton???

Celtic will be seeded and will thus avoid Tottenham Hotspur.

Stuart King: "#bbcsportscot Remember Artmedia Bratislava. Wee Gordy turned it round afterwards."

Celtic miss out on a third straight Champions League group stage campaign and will need to negotiate a play-off to get into a Europa League group.


The goals of Michal Zyro and Michal Kucharczyk beat Celtic on the night, adding to the 4-1 win Legia Warsaw recorded in last week's first leg.


Celtic 0-2 Legia Warsaw (agg 1-6)

Legia Warsaw complete a resounding aggregate win to progress to the Champions League play-off round. It's the Europa League play-off for Celtic.

Final two substitutions for Legia Warsaw. Helio Pinto and Bartosz Bereszynski come on for Michal Zyro and Ondrej Duda.

James Forrest draws a save from Legia Warsaw goalkeeper Dusan Kuciak. The winger has at least injected some pace to the Celtic attack.

Callum McGregor and Leigh Griffiths try their best to give the Celtic fans something to cheer but neither finds their way to goal.


This was the scene in the Celtic penalty area following that second Legia Warsaw goal. It's been a miserable night at Murrayfield for the Scottish champions.

"Swathes of Celtic fans leaving the ground, resigned to the fact their team has not been good enough over the two legs. It's a rude awakening, having enjoyed some really great European nights over the past two seasons."

Anytime Celtic go forward they come up against a brick wall. Legia Warsaw, on the other hand, spread the ball around freely once they get over halfway.

Legia Warsaw force a couple of corners in quick succession and make a change with Jakub Kosecki coming on to replace Michael Kucharczyk.


Conor Healy: "#bbcsportscot Only Ronny's 4th competitive game. Lennon and Strachan suffered big defeats in Europe when they started, give the man a chance"

More changes for Celtic. Anthony Stokes and Kris Commons make way for James Forrest and Teemu Pukki.


Marc Thomson: "#bbcsportscot this is dreadful. I understand balancing the books but to be gubbed like this must wake the board up"


Anthony Stokes has had little joy in attack for Celtic this evening.
