Probably the latter. The Scottish league has been sliding down the UEFA co-effieicnt list for ages now, a few years ago they got one side straight into the group and another having to qualify, now they cant even get one side into the final qualifying round.

Think even the manager has come out and said the team is crap!

Scottish PL is about on the same level as mid table league 1 clubs don't get me wrong Celtic are a HUGE club but in terms of on field quality they have been becoming weaker each year constantly selling any good players they do have to BPL of championship clubs and replacing them with inferior players.

This debacle of a result should be laid firmly at the door of Peter Lawell and the plc board. The financial position of the club has been the primary focus, regardless of the weakening of the playing squad to a degree that would allow a pretty average team like Legia Warsaw, not only to turn us over, but to completely rout us. Whilst we will win the SPL in a canter, this season's Champions League qualification matches have damaged the club's reputation and has put us in a much poorer place in the transfer market, should we decide to invest in the player market. Who would want to come and play at Paradise with no European football? Forster and Van Dijk will be away by the end of the month as well. Still it could be worse, we could be playing in the First division.

Think it was the officials. Legia chairman has accepted responsibility for it, it seems, so cant imagine there will be an appeal.

My understanding was that the player concerned was to start a three match ban in the second qualifying round against the Irish side, but the club didnt "register" him for those matches so the ban didnt start until the Celtic tie.

Find that strange, the suspended player only came on for the last 3 min when Leiga were already well clear. Happened a few years ago I think, sub came on with a few min to go who was also meant to be suspended and uefa or the power that be decided they had not intentionally broken the rules and it had no bearing on the result. I would have thought the same here for Leiga with the precedent already set.

However, pleased another UK team has now qualified, or will they by a UK team by the end of Sep??

If there is an appeal it certainly wont be on the basic of the Poles claiming they did nothing wrong, it will be on the punishment, and the case from a few years ago will be cited.

It is and completely unfair on Legia Warsaw, as they were clearly the better team. Whilst on a personal level, this is a great opportunity for Celtic to bank circa £20 Million if they can get past Maribor, the offence made no difference to the result and I'm pretty sure if it had been Barcelona or Real Madrid, there is no way the same penalty would have been applied.

It's a joke, Celtic were rubbish, they also got seeded and a dog easy draw in the final qualifying round.

Probably, however £1.6M from EUFA for participating in the final qualifier, coupled with gate and tv revenue has put significant money into the coffers and puts us even further in front financially of our friends across the city. :D
