Celtic pulled off an unexpected win against Feyenoord in the Champions League to hopefully breathe new life into their domestic campaign. Brendan Rodgers' side have been struggling for performances and results in recent weeks, so the last thing fans expected was for them to end a decade-plus wait for a win at Parkhead in Europe's top competition.
The first goal for Celtic came from the penalty spot, with Luis Palma making no mistake. Then the game settled down and just when the Hoops were starting to look comfortable and on their way to victory, Feyenoord equalised.
It was a goal that could have been easily avoided and it would be understandable if most Celtic fans gave up on their hopes for a win after the equaliser. After all, this same thing has happened so many times in recent years.
Celtic did manage to find a winner this time though. Matt O'Riley played a brilliant cross to the far post and Gustaf Lagerbielke was there to nod home the winner.
Feyenoord player makes blunt claim after losing to Celtic
Feyenoord players were clearly disappointed with the result. As reported by Glasgow Times, Mats Wieffer said:
"Everyone is very frustrated. Celtic were better in the first 20 minutes and then we had it pretty much under control. We created a lot of chances, especially in the second half.
"I don't know how many goals we have conceded like the one Celtic scored late on in the Champions League, but that's not possible."
He further went on to add on about the matter:
"These are the moments you train to prevent when everyone has a man. This should not happen.
"It's all very well saying we played nice football and should have won, but if that happens time and time again, you will never win anything."
Of course, you could say the exact same thing about a number of Celtic's results in Europe in recent years. It is good to be on the other side of the coin for once though.
The result does not mean a lot in terms of the group though, with Celtic finishing bottom regardless. But they should take some much-needed confidence and belief from winning in Europe's top competition and hopefully we will see their domestic performances improve over the coming weeks and months as a result. They certainly need to do that if they are to retain the Premiership title.
