Less than 24 hours after Celtic manager Neil Lennon described coming back from 2-0 down to beat Kazakh side Shakhter Karagandy and reach the Champions League group stage as "the greatest night of my footballing life," he experienced a bit of cosmic balance for that soaring high.

Celtic's 2-0 loss in the first leg of their Champions League playoff against Kazakh champions Shakhter Karagandy was embarrassing.

Following Celtic's 4-0 win against St. Johntstone, they were awarded the trophy for making easy work of the Scottish Premier League. At one point, Celtic manager Neil Lennon took the trophy over to the stands, pulled his winner's medal off his neck and handed it to a young girl in the stands.

It was a move reminiscent of when Jose Mourinho chucked his Chelsea 2006 winner's medal into the stands at Stamford Bridge, but more of a tender moment than a display of swaggering brashness.
