David Moyes watches from the stands as Celtic crash out of Champions League

Ronny Delia, must have been wondering which black cat he must have angered to get such rotten luck.

Not only did Celtic crashed out of the Champions League third round qualifier on Wednesday morning (Aug 6) by losing with an aggregate score of 6-1, the appearance of an out-of-work manager in the stands has certainly got people talking about the Norwegian's fate in the Celtic hotseat, the Mirror reported. 

Scottish Giants Celtic trailed Polish team Legia Warsaw 4-1 from the first leg in Poland and he was hoping for a repeat of last season’s feat when they secured the 3-0 home victory over Shakhter Karagandyto qualify for the group stages of Europe’s elite competition.  

Unfortunately the Hoops (Celtic's nickname), never looked like turning the tie around and saw their hopes crushed in the 36th minute when MichalZyro raced in on goal to fire Legia in front.

Michael Kucharczyk then took advantage of some slack Celtic defending to add to their misery in the 61st minute and send his side into the Champions League play-off stage while Celtic drop into the play-off round for the Europa League. 

Only four games in charge of the Hoops, Delia's appointment had been underwhelming for Celtic fans because it was widely believe that Moyes was favourites to take over from former Celtic manager, Neil Lennon. 

It would seem that Delia has to get Celtic back to winning ways soon, because the vultures are certainly lurking.

Celtic's next match will be against St Johnstone in their opening match in the Scottish Premier League on Aug 13.
