The Hoops crashed out of the Europa League after a disappointing 3-0 defeat at the hands of Zenit.

However, McManus is of the opinion that Lustig is a poor defender as he is frequently at fault such as he was against the Russian outfit.

"That will be our idea going into the game and we will look forward to working that way".

"Bit of a cult hero with the Celtic support, but not for me". Of course we are up against the best of the best, so there is a lot of learning taking place. In this one, if we had showed more courage and more belief, we could have got a result.

"There is still an very bad lot of work for us to do", he added.




"I think there's still an very bad lot of work for us to do, but there have been a lot of positives for us in both competitions". If they play with that aggression, quality and intensity, then it gives us a great opportunity.

"Of course we are up against the best of the best". It's about consistency, really. "Last week was an outstanding performance and you would think that would allow us to come into this game with confidence". We now have to finish our domestic campaign as strongly as we can and create another piece of history on that front.

Zenit head coach Roberto Mancini was understandably content with the turnaround in his team's performance level after having been outplayed in the first leg.

"We were one step away from the miracle", said Napoli's Brazilian midfielder Allan. At the beginning of the first leg, I was being a realist as everyone would probably expect Zenit to go through, but what we showed in the first leg is that we're going to make it very hard for them and going to make it really competitive.

This mentality has been something that has followed the Northern Irishman's career for a few years now, with many believing that he has skated by both at Celtic and Liverpool on the back of great players and a weak division. "Tonight we scored three goals, had other chances and for 75 minutes didn't concede any chances to Celtic".
