Ok I did not expect the game I just seen celtic always make it hard but we prevailed and are through to the big draw on Thursday.,
Astana were holding a 14 game unbeaten run at home in Europe so coming into the game 5/0 down from the first leg in Glasgow I wasent expecting to be biting the old nails after 65 mins ..
But 2 quick goals early in the second half had me wondering if I was going to be sitting on my hands for the entire second half ..
We don’t do things easy but in the end 2 goals from ntcham and griffiths made it 4-3 on the night and the nervous settled into thoughts of the draw on Thursday night ..
We can’t defend like this in the group stages.
Yeah it’s a defeat but we made the score respectable in the end it’s 90 mins and to be honest taking chances it could have been a draw ..
It shows how important the first leg was 2 things stood out for me tonight , ntcham is a class player and Sinclair has 5 goals in Europe already ..
Brendan Rodgers has a 30 million pound budget to add to our squad , a defender and a striker a must as injuries have depleted our squad already this season ..
We look for a favourable draw on Thursday alough theirs no easy games we can’t go away from the saftey of parkhead like tonight and concede goals like we did.
We’re in the big draw that’s what’s important celtic will represent scotland again this year after Aberdeen st johnstone and sevco let the co-efficient down again ..
I’m happy we’re through for the second year in a row , a decent draw and 6 big games will enhance the celtic product worldwide.
God dont let us draw Barcelona alough meeting our old foes always makes for a great night in paradise.
On to the draw can’t wait
HERE WE GO HH
