The Serie A side are reeling from the loss, but midfield Marco Parolo had positive words to say about Celtic's goalkeeper Fraser Forster.

 

He praised Forster's performance, lauding the Celtic stopper's 'decisive' impact.

Parolo told Tuttomercatoweb: "As usual we are able to create a lot, we are not good at exploiting the opportunities that happen.

"In Europe you give an opportunity and they punish you, in Italy this is not always the case. Their goalkeeper was once again decisive."

Lazio had gone a goal up after just seven minutes through striker Ciro Immobile before James Forrest equalised before half-time.
