Neil Lennon was pleased by the contributions of Scott Robertson and Karamoko Dembele despite Celtic’s 2-0 defeat away to Cluj.

The hoops boss made nine changes to the side that won the League Cup Final on Sunday with Robertson playing the full 90 minutes alongside Olivier Ntcham in central midfield.

The 18-year-old looked very comfortable playing against high quality opponents with Cluj joining Celtic in the Round of 32 draw on Monday.

Dembele replaced Mikey Johnston in the 72nd minute and became the youngest player to be involved in a European tie for the club.

Celtic reached the interval on level terms but looked slack after the break with Andrei Burca and Damjan Djokovic scoring for the home side in the 48th and 70th minutes.

Cluj will join Celtic in Monday’s draw but the two teams can’t be drawn against each other at this stage, should they progress however they could meet for the third time in Europe this season in the last 16.
