Lennon sends out warning

Neil Lennon has warned Shakhter Karagandy that Celtic will be coming at them from the first whistle in the second-leg of their Champions League play-off at Parkhead next week as they try to rescue the tie following the shock 2-0 defeat at the Astana Arena on Tuesday night.

I don't know (if they think it is over).

They are definitely in the ascendancy and there is that euphoria straight after the final whistle.

But they have to come to Glasgow and they will have to defend well because we will come at them from the off.

They didn't (surprise me). We knew exactly how they would play.

We knew they would be physical and a threat from set pieces.

But if you look at the game in the cold light of day, we had six or seven clear-cut chances to either take the lead, equalise or get back in the tie so it gives us plenty of encouragement for the second game in Glasgow.
