Lazio took the lead early on, as the impressive Manuel Lazzari picked the ball up and curled in an excellent cross on to the foot of the in-form Ciro Immobile.

Paulinho's first half double set Braga on the way to a 3-1 home win over 10-man Besiktas to keep them top in Group K where Wolverhampton Wanderers missed a penalty and needed a late Raul Jimenez header to win 1-0 against Slovan Bratislava at Molineux.

Lennon's men were backed by a support of around 9,000 in the Stadio Olimpico (Daily Record) and the Hoops faithful made themselves heard from start to finish in a tasty atmosphere.

"Not just winning the game but the way they played the game, the character, the bravery and above all else, real quality".

Separately, Celtic fans were attacked after their shuttle bus on the way back from the stadium broke down. We have qualified after four games.

Olivier Ntcham scored a dramatic injury-time victor to grab Celtic a 2-1 victory at Lazio.

"It was a Titanic game again, a brilliant game to watch and it was a game we thoroughly deserved to win".

"We are in a good place at the minute".

Lazio created a plethora of chances throughout the game to seal the points, but Parolo admits that they just did not convert the opportunities that Celtic allowed them to have.

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. Players like Ryan Christie, Odsonne Edouard and Mohamed Elyounoussi are flourishing on the European stage, and in charge of them we have a manager who clearly knows what he needs to do to get a tune out of his players.

Lazio boss Simone Inzaghi said: "Celtic have beaten us home and away so maybe they will be able to beat Cluj in Romania and we have to win against Rennes and Cluj".
