Things were better for Celtic in tonight’s Europa League clash compared with recent showing from the Scottish champions.
There were goals. Two, in fact, as Tom Rogic and Odsonne Edouard put the visitors into a quick 2-0 lead away to the Serie A leaders. They were also competitive with their much-fancied hosts for the majority of the 90 minutes.
However, familiar failings were there for everyone to see. Goalkeeping and defending remains a major problem for manager Neil Lennon, who still clings to his job despite severe pressure from the club’s support.
Milan were quickly able to haul themselves level through Hakan Çalhanoğlu and Samu Castillejo. It was then Jens Petter Hauge shortly after the break who put the Italian side ahead for good, while Brahim Diaz added a fourth late on.
