Celtic’s efforts to get to the Champions League was cut short last season as Cluj knocked them out – and Calum McGregor has revealed the squad won’t let it happen again.

As he admits the pain of losing makes them even more determined to get to the Champions League.

He said: “We do want to right the wrongs of what happened against Cluj last season.

“It was a crazy game of football really. There were so many ups and downs over the 90 minutes.

“At one point in the game we looked like scoring every time we went up the pitch.

“But then in the last 20 minutes, Cluj pretty much did that and we were out.

“It was a crazy night and sometimes in football these things happen.

“As players you remember low points like that and you want to rectify them when you get the chance.

“The aim is to get the club back into the Champions League as that’s where we feel we should be.

“With the stature of Celtic, we feel that’s the tournament we should be competing in.

“We all know how difficult it is to get there with the four qualifying rounds and in knockout football anything can happen.

“But we feel we are a good enough club, with good enough players, to be there.

“When you qualify and get the rewards of a Barcelona, Bayern Munich or Man City coming to Celtic Park, it’s a great feeling.”
