HAVING lost an early goal in Rome, it was James Forrest that fired Celtic level against Lazio with a sublime finish on 38 minutes at the Stadio Olimpico.

With just seconds of play remaining, five minutes into second-half added time, an equally wonderful strike from Olivier Ntcham secured all three points for the Scottish champions on the road.

The victory saw the Hoops top Group E of the UEFA Europa League, and secure progression to the competition’s knockout round of 32

“I can’t really sum up how I feel after that,” said goalscorer Forrest after the game. “It’s a great night and great result, it has to be up there with the best I’ve ever had.
