Such A Classy Goal - Former Australia Star Hails Celtic's Victory At Lazio”

Ciro Immobile volleyed the hosts into a seventh-minute lead, but James Forrest drew Celtic level before half-time with his 11th goal of the season.

The goal came after a counter-attack in the 95th minute when Odsonne Edouard played in Ntcham.

With just three points from its opening three games, Lazio needed a win to have any realistic hopes of progressing.

Celtic fans light flares before kick-off.

The midfielder said: "We have managed to qualify after four games, it shows you how hard we have worked".

Moussa performed in some memorable European evenings for Celtic but not an away working day like we just witnessed.

"It is historic. It is a privilege for me to coach these players and work with my backroom staff who do an unbelievable job behind the scenes".

When Lazzari curled in a cross from deep, the ball skipped off the head of Hoops defender Christopher Jullien and Immobile, totally unmarked, slotted past keeper Fraser Forster. It is job done as far as qualifying for the new year.

As both sides went for the victor Ntcham latched on to an Odsonne Edouard pass in the fifth of five added minutes and dinked the ball over goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha to guarantee Celtic a place in the last-32 of the Europa League with two Group E fixtures remaining.

Forster was aided by the upright with 15 minutes remaining, however - Luis Alberto's corner clipping off the base of the post - before Celtic's goalkeeper pulled off two fantastic saves in quick succession.

"To beat Barcelona was a great night and a great achievement for the club but this is nearly on a par, to come here and play a team in great form, packed with internationals".

Celtic fans drink beers ahead of an Europa League group E soccer match between Lazio and Celtic, in Rome's Olympic Stadium.

"We should've received a penalty and the fact it wasn't awarded is astonishing".

After a few deserved celebrations, Celtic will half to regain their composure to prepare for their upcoming Premiership match against Motherwell on Sunday.
