Celtic 1-2 Ferencvaros: Lennon's men stunned in Champions League qualifier

Wed 26 August 2020 | 21:36

Celtic will not be in the 2020-21 Champions League after falling in the second round of qualifying to Ferencvaros.

Celtic were stunned by Ferencvaros in the second round of Champions League qualifying on Wednesday, losing 2-1 in Glasgow.

Tokmac Nguen's second-half goal sent the Hungarian side through and consigned the Scottish champions to a third season in a row without reaching the group stage.

A superb strike from David Siger put Ferencvaros ahead after only seven minutes with what was their only shot in the first half.

Celtic, who finished the game with 70 per cent of the possession and 28 shots to the visitors' seven, were level after 53 minutes thanks to a powerful effort from Ryan Christie.

Olivier Ntcham rattled the crossbar with a half-volley and Mohamed Elyounoussi had a goal disallowed for a marginal offside before Ferencvaros' sucker punch.

Nguen ran onto a long clearance, held off a tame challenge from Hatem Elhamed and squeezed a shot beneath Vasilios Barkas.

Celtic will now drop into Europa League qualifying, while Ferencvaros head into Monday's draw for the next round.
