Zlatan Ibrahimovic leads charge for AC Milan 3-1 win over Celtic. Milan ran out 3-1 winners when Jens Hauge scored late.
AC Milan turned up the heat further on Neil Lennon by recording a 3-1 victory over Celtic in their opening Europa League encounter.
Lennon and his players came into the game with their backs against the wall after the 2-0 defeat to Rangers on Saturday and started poorly as Zlatan Ibrahimovic – at 39-years-old – ran the show at Celtic Park.
Rade Krunic headed the Italians in front (14) before Brahim Diaz doubled the lead with a neat low finish (42).
Celtic improved after the break when switching to a back four and Mohamed Elyounoussi gave Lennon’s team hope (75) but they were unable to fashion an equaliser. Jens Hauge wrapped up the points in stoppage time as AC Milan stretched their unbeaten run in all competitions to 21 matches.
Man of the match: Zlatan Ibrahimovic
