The manager of Scottish Celtic Neil Lennon has commented on the defeat of his team in the first leg of the final qualification round of the Champions League against Kazakhstan’s Shakhter, a football club of Karaganda city, Vesti.kz reports.

“It’s a disappointing result. We should have scored and that would have put a different complexion on the tie. It’s not over yet. We’ve got to go back to Celtic Park. There is plenty for me to chew on in terms of chances but Shakhter didn’t surprise us with the way they played. We knew they would throw balls forward and we should have dealt with the first one a lot better. I don’t know how many chances we had tonight – clear-cut ones as well – but if you don’t take your chances you make life difficult for yourself. I’m not down and out just yet,” he said.

The midfielder Joe Ledley gave some details of the game: “To be fair to them, their keeper was on fire but we dominated possession and had more chances but lost sloppy goals. It is definitely frustrating, we dominated them away from home and two sloppy goals killed the game. Away from home you need to keep the door shut and it just wasn’t good enough. But we believe we can score against them.”

Earlier Tengrinews.kz English reported that Sjakhter defeated Celtic 2:0 in Astana yesterday. The second leg will be held in Celtic Park stadium in Glasgow on August 29.
