Manuel Lazzari put the Serie A outfit in the lead five minutes before the half-time interval.

Former United and England international midfielder Scholes was impressed with the Celtic supporters and with the team for recovering after going a goal down.

 

Meanwhile, former Scotland international striker James McFadden has praised Celtic for their performance against Lazio.

Scholes said on BT Sport 3 (11:07pm, October 24, 2019): “It’s one of those places, Celtic, where you go, you play well, you control the game, as Lazio did tonight, and as we did for large parts of our game years ago, but they always find a way, they always find a way to win.

“We saw the crowd was sensational. We saw how crazy they were going there towards the end. It just shows that the Europa League is important to some clubs at least, which is good.”

McFadden told BBC Sport: “It wasn't a backs-to-the-wall performance at all. If anything, the threat that Lazio had was on the counter-attack. Celtic have just shown another side to their game. When things get tough they roll up their sleeves.”
