Lazio 2-0 Celtic: Ciro Immobile’s quick double ends Hoops’ European campaign -Dlight News

Celtic’s European campaign was ended by Ciro Immobile’s late double as they fell to a 2-0 defeat to Lazio in the Champions League.

Brendan Rodgers’ side knew they had to win in Rome in their penultimate Group E match to have a chance of dropping into the Europa League.

They held off some early pressure from the hosts with Kyogo Furuhashi going close to putting the Hoops ahead either side of the break.

Immobile came off the bench to fire in two goals inside three minutes to sink Celtic’s hopes as they remain on course to reach the knockout stages of Europe’s elite competition.

Celtic’s wait for an elusive group-stage victory continues.
