VALENCIA almost repeated the disastrous administrative mistake by playing a suspended player against Celtic.

So Valencia having found out somewhat belatedly that their new signing is actually suspended and ineligible to play against Celtic, have narrowly avoided the mistake that Legia Warsaw made at Murrayfield back in August 2014.

That was the last game Roncaglia played in Europe so that means he will miss both legs of the match against Celtic and also the first two games Valencia play next season, assuming Celtic knock them out.

But Valencia bosses were shocked to discover that their new signing is ruled out of BOTH the games against Celtic in what is a major blow to the La Liga side.

The 32-year-old even spoke after the game about how he was looking forward to playing at Celtic Park on Thursday in the Europa League tie after being put up by Valencia to speak to the Spanish media.

Marta’s mistake was including Bartosz Bereszynski, a suspended player in the squad at Murrayfield, having not registered him against St Pats in the previous round or in the first leg against Celtic in Warsaw.

And when Legia, 2-0 up on the night and 6-1 ahead on aggregate, brought Bereszynski on as substitute in the closing stages, the result was turned upside down and Marta was fired by the Polish side, who moaned and groaned for months after UEFA deemed that the Murrayfield game would be recorded as a 3-0 home win for Celtic – so we progressed under the away goals rule!
