Kenny Miller reacts to Celtic's 2-1 win over Lazio

Kenny Miller has told BT Sport (broadcast on 24/10 from 20:00) that Ryan Christie enjoyed another wonderful night as Celtic produced a stunning 2-1 win against Lazio at Parkhead.

The Hoops have put themselves in a fantastic position to qualify for the knockout stages of the Europa League. Lazio went into the game having not lost since September. And it appeared that that run would continue.

The Serie A side took the lead five minutes before half-time through Manuel Lazzari. But Celtic turned the game on its head in the second-half.

A pulsating game looked destined to end in a draw. But Christopher Jullien had other ideas. The centre-back produced an incredible leap to head home from a corner in the 88th minute. Cue pandaemonium in the stands.

Celtic held on during the nervy five minutes of stoppage-time to put one foot into the next round. Fraser Forster produced a sensational save from a stunning volley in the final moments of the game.

Neil Lennon’s men are now top of their group and four points clear of Lazio heading into the return fixture in Rome.

And after the game, Miller offered his reaction as Parkhead provided the stage for yet another remarkable European night for the Hoops.

“Huge moments and big momentum swings,” he told BT Sport. “Fraser Forster’s save at the end, Fraser Forster’s save from the chance from the cut-back, Immobile’s miss. A lot of moments went in Celtic’s favour tonight. And the goals came at a fantastic time.

“And again, it’s that man. Forget his goals, Ryan Christie’s energy to initiate the press. He must have done 14km tonight. His energy, every other week we’re on the Europa League, we’re talking about his quality, we’re talking about the energy levels he shows. He’s had a wonderful night again.”
