Here’s how their fans reacted on social media to the latest European loss:

@scully1888: “Anyone who thinks tonight was a disgrace needs to get their expectations in check. Even at our best we wouldn't be entitled to beat the top team in Serie A. Defence and keeper are still grim but that was streets ahead of Ross County. Their keeper had to make some great saves.”

@MarkCochrane67: “Was a better performance from an attacking point of view but yet again, another abismal performance from our defence and our goalkeeper. So basically normal service!”

@PetrolheadB: “Not a disgrace tonight. Some great football and attaching play let down once again by a slapdash defence and an imposter as a goalkeeper. David Marshall made his debut as a teenager. Time we gave Hazzard his opportunity.”

@TheJingerOne: “Could have had the game wrapped up in a half hour -if we weren’t a shambles at the back and had a bit composure. Can’t believe we played a euro tie and the st Johnston game is bigger.”

@jameswar23: “17 goals conceded in 5 euro games. Sorry time is up Lenny. Should have played defensive set up as needed a moral booking draw at least. But no same team and formation that has failed week in eeek out. Times up.”

@wellybhoyalan: “In my 45+ years as a Celtic fan. Is this the worst form of any Celtic manager in that time? 27 goals conceded in our last 11 games. 2 wins in 11. I genuinely can’t remember such a bad run and such a level of defensive incompetency.”

@Helter1314: “Lennon made a valid point regarding the Culture in the club. We had a proven, successful team, who were very professional. Over time that has been eroded away, by his amateur approach.”

@Frankierocks83: “Don't know why Soro doesn't get a run in the team. He gets stuck in and he's good on the ball. Played a great ball when he came on.”

@sjwolohan: “Soro did mare in 20 mins than Brown did the whole game!”
