Celtic’s European adventures are over for another year, after a 3-0 defeat by Zenit saw the Hoops crash out of the Europa League 3-1 on aggregate.
Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers made no changes from the team that played in the first leg for the second leg, hoping for a similar performance.
The Bhoys made a dreadful start to the game and they saw their first leg advantage evaporate after only eight minutes, when Jozo Simunovic left Branislav Ivanovic unmarked at a corner and the former Chelsea man headed home.
The Russians took the lead in the tie in the 27th minute, Daler Kuzyaev’s long-range effort did have some dip and swerve on it but Dorus de Vries should have dealt with it much better.
Zenit went 3-0 on the hour, when Aleksandr Kokorin bundled the ball home from close range.
The Hoops had some pressure late on in the game but they never seriously troubled Zenit who eased into the last 16 draw on Friday.
