Ryan Christie says he was ‘desperate’ to play in the Champions League
Ryan Christie admits Celtic were not streetwise enough as they twice lost a lead to crash out of the Champions League on Tuesday night.
Christie put Celtic 3-2 ahead against Cluj in the 76th minute but the brilliantly-worked goal was undone inside four minutes when the Romanians worked space to shoot before Billel Omrani netted from the rebound.

The final blow came after six minutes of stoppage-time but the damage had already been done with Neil Lennon’s men heading out on away goals before the visitors snatched a 4-3 win.
