“Not so world beating team” – Hungarian media bitter in defeat
As Celtic enjoy the adulation of the fans after an impressive 2-0 win over Ferencvaros in the Europa League, the Scottish media, in some parts, have given the Hoops decent praise as the Parkhead side keep their European dream alive.
But the Hungarian media were not to complimentary for their domestic champions as they succumbed to constant pressure from the Hoops.
And strangely, one Hungarian media site, Mandiner, took the defeat particularly hard and were less than complimentary about the dominant Glasgow side in their match report.
Harking back to last seasons win at Celtic Park in the Champions League, the media side said of last nights match, “Last year in the Champions League Ferencvaros defeated Celtic in the qualifiers.
“As we get used to in modern football today, both teams have been replaced in a year. The Scots are better.”

“In the last quarter of an hour, Ferencvaros completely disintegrated, and the not-so-world-beating Celtic could do with them what they wanted.
“It is clear the Budapest team cannot last more than 60 minutes at this level. Neither physically nor in concentration.
“Celtic is a much weaker team than the other two members of the group (as evidenced in the previous two rounds), but Ferencvaros had no chance against them either.
You can almost taste the bitterness in this article and you just wonder how the backlash will look after Celtic go to Budapest and take another three points back to Glasgow with them.
