Celtic get late injury boost for Rennes clash

Lennon was surprised video assistance was unavailable, unlike in the Champions League, and felt his side were denied a clear penalty in a game of two spot-kicks.

Celtic take on Ligue 1 side Rennes this evening in the UEFA Europa League as the group stage of the competition gets off and away in France for the Hoops.

However, when James Forrest was brought down in the penalty area just on the hour mark, Ryan Christie stepped up to fire Celtic level.

Both teams came into the game without conceding a goal in their last outing, but Niang handed Rennes a first-half lead.

"It's a great start for us but you always want more". I'm not happy with the sending-off and we should have had another penalty, a clear penalty on Ryan Christie.

Bayo was booked for an aerial challenge before clipping the home goalkeeper, Édouard Mendy, at a loose ball moments later. Referee Sanchez played on but Mendy rolled about holding his face and Bayo got another card after a huge delay.

Our defence will have to be on top form to help us get a result, then, and it looks as though we've been given a boost in that regard late on by Neil Lennon. "I don't know if he was looking back at the goalkeeper who was holding his head when there was no contact with his face at all". So I think Bayo can feel very hard done by.
