Celtic crashed out of the Champions League after twice letting a lead slip in a 4-3 home defeat by CFR Cluj.

The Scottish champions made a storming start to the second half to go 2-1 ahead through goals from James Forrest and Odsonne Edouard but Scott Brown’s handball allowed Billel Omrani to score from the spot and make it 3-3 on aggregate and put the Romanians ahead on away goals.



Substitute Leigh Griffiths flicked a header wide and McGregor shot off target twice as Cluj survived some intense pressure.



Ryan Christie soon put Celtic back in front but Omrani quickly levelled again on the rebound in the 80th minute to put the Romanians ahead on away goals again.

Celtic went back in front two minutes later when Edouard burst into the box and squared for Christie to net but they did not kill the game off and Omrani finished high into the net after Bain could only parry Djokovic’s angled strike.

The stand-in defender lost Deac and clattered into the Cluj player after he had screwed a shot wide but the visitors’ penalty appeals fell on deaf ears.

Cluj pressed Celtic aggressively and pinned their hosts back for much of the opening stages.
