    Post Celtic back in Champions League!

    UEFA have reinstated Celtic back into the Champions League playoff stages following the Legia Warsaw debacle.

    Hmmmm, fair enough but the bhoys better shape up fast or they'll be heading back out again in the next round

    Remarkable considering the hammering the got on aggregate. Seems harsh on leige, werent they 6-1 up when they brought on the illegal player. But as you say they will need to improve greatly if they want to make the group stages.

    Celtic have been very fortunate again, the same thing happened them a few years ago when Swiss side Sion beat them in a play off and were thrown out for using ineligible players

    Very harsh punishment on Legia IMO. It appears that they were aware that the player in question had a suspension so they didn't register him for the previous round against us in the belief that that would serve as the suspension. However that wasn't the case but given that the player only came on for the last 2 minutes surely some common sense should have prevailed and a fine imposed. Just to rub it in, Celtic get a nice draw for the play-off round.

    Legia kinda cost themselves by not registering the player but debrecen got away with it so it is harsh on them but mistakes were made

    Celtic get a 1-1 draw away from home. A good result, hopefully they will finish the job at home.

    you were right about them heading back out in the next round. A very disapointing result tonight, beaten 1-0 at home to maribor and going out 2-1 on aggregate.
