Former Australia worldwide Ned Zelic has hailed Celtic's winning goal in their 2-1 victory at Lazio this evening.

Celtic won 2-1 at Lazio with nearly the last kick of the game as Frenchman Ntcham elegantly chipped the ball over the oncoming goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha deep in stoppage time for the Scottish side's' first-ever victory on Italian soil.

Lazio took the lead at the Stadio Olimpico after just seven minutes, with Ciro Immobile being left unmarked to volley into the back of the net.

Olivier Ntcham's dramatic stoppage-time strike sent the fans insane all over the world, and fans poured their admiration over the player and his celebration as well. Thought they were outstanding in the second half.
