Two-goal Celtic hero Moi Elyounoussi says that he should have won the game for his team after they earned a 2-2 draw against Lille last night.

Despite two outstanding goals in the first half, all that Elyounoussi could think about after the game was the chance he missed just after Lille had pulled a goal back which would have put Celtic 3-1 ahead.

When the attacker was asked which of his two strikes were his favourite, Elyounoussi replied: "I can tell you what wasn’t my favourite moment – the chance I had to score in the second half when I didn’t shoot.

"I don’t think too much about the ones I scored. I’m more disappointed with the moments in the second half when I could have passed it earlier or just gone for it, as I did in the first half.

"Obviously I’m happy with my two goals but still a bit disappointed I couldn’t get a hat-trick.

"If you had offered us a point before the game, we would have been happy. But, when you’re leading 2-0, you have to be just disappointed that we didn’t get the win.

"A win would have been huge for us so there are mixed emotions right now."

Elyounoussi hopes that the creditable draw though will help Celtic look ahead with a positive frame of mind after a difficult period when manager Neil Lennon has come in for some stick.

"I don’t read the criticism," he said. "And I don’t know why anyone should criticise him.

"He’s shown over many, many years that he’s a good manager. We believe in him and his staff.

"Of course it has been a difficult week for us but we have to stick together, stick to the plan and we’ll come out stronger. We are 100 per cent behind him. Of course.’
