Video: Sloppy defending halves Celtic’s lead within 30 seconds of the second half

It’s unusually for Cameron Carter-Vickers to be sloppy at the back for Celtic, but his weak physical showing has allowed Legia Warsaw to half the deficit against the Hoops in Artur Boruc’s testimonial against Ange Postecoglou’s men.

Celtic had raced into a 2-0 lead at half-time following some superb football which could and should have seen the Hoops scored at least four in the Polish capital, although that wasn’t to be with the woodwork constantly denying them the opportunity to extend their lead.

A strong second half showing was expected of Postecoglou’s men where they were aiming to carry on where they had left off, although that was deflated after just 41 seconds.

A long searching ball by the Warsaw goalkeeper Kacper Tobiasz saw Carter-Vickers enter a tussle with striker Maciej Rosolek, with the ball bouncing awkwardly for the former Tottenham defender to deal with.

A physical battle ensued between the pair, with CCV rarely losing in these sorts of situations…but that he did, and Rosolek ran through on goal before slotting past a hapless Scott Bain to give Warsaw a lifeline in the King’s Game.
