Lennon: 'Celtic deserved something'

Coach Neil Lennon believes Celtic ‘deserved something out of the game’ in their 3-1 Europa League home defeat to Milan.

The Rossoneri went 2-0 up through Rade Krunic and Brahim Diaz, then took their foot off the gas for the second half, allowing a Mohamed Elyounoussi header from a corner.

Substitute Jens Petter Hauge ran on to an Alexis Saelemaekers through ball to secure the result in stoppages.

“I thought we deserved something out of the game against a very good team,” Lennon told BT Sport.

“We were more like ourselves in the second half, but we just lacked the cutting edge. We started the game quite brightly, but we gave away two soft goals.

“I thought Ajeti was outstanding, Diego Laxalt was outstanding, Ajer did well. I thought there were some good performances out there.”
