Ange Postecoglou’s Celtic failed to qualify for the UEFA Champions League after being knocked out by the Danish club Mitilan.
The Danes won the extra time 2-1 at the MCH Arena on Thursday morning, with a total of 3-2 in the two-legged second qualifying round battle following the draw in the first leg at Celtic Park last week. I got it.
Celtic advanced the second leg in the 48th minute with a great strike from skipper Callum McGregor.
However, the joy of the Scottish giant was short-lived, with Midtjylland soccer attacker Awer Mabil catching up with a smart header on the near post 13 minutes later.
The score was locked 1-1 at night and a total of 2-2 at the end of normal time, and the contest entered a 30-minute extension.
And it was Midtjylland that substitute Rafael Oniedica scored a decisive goal in just four minutes of overtime.
Midtjylland’s victory will move them to the third round of Champions League qualifying next week.
For former Soxeros boss Postecoglou, his Celtic side will focus on launching the Scottish Premier League campaign against Hearts at Tyne Castle on Sunday morning (AEST).
They will also return to European action next week in the first leg of the Europa League qualifying against Jablonec in the Czech Republic.
