CELTIC's players may not be good enough to implement Ange Postecoglou's high-intensity style of plays. 

That's the view of former Hoops gaffer Neil Lennon.

The Australian's side were picked apart against Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League, with the Germans running out 4-0 winners. 

The Matchday Two result leaves the Parkhead outfit bottom of Group G, with a massive task on their hands if they're to qualify for the knockout rounds.

It's fair to say some of the defending and mistakes left a lot to be desired for such a high level of European football.

And Lenny has slaughtered Celtic as "kamikaze" at this moment in time.

In the aftermath of the game, he told BT Sport: "They came out second half and created some good chances, and that's nothing to do with the manager in terms of missing the chances.

"We talked about half time that the next goal was really important, and the goalkeeper made some fantastic saves, but over the 90 minutes Leverkusen could have easily got six or seven.

"Joe Hart made a couple of great saves, and the missed some great chances. It's just kind of kamikaze at the minute.

"It just seems to be we will attack you, you will attack us, and we will see who comes out on top. Tonight there was a ruthless in Leverkusen, and a quality of player that Lennon couldn't match.

"Are the players good enough to adapt to the way Ange wants to play? On the evidence of tonight you have to say no.

"They are losing too many games at the minute. I would be really reluctant to criticise the manager. There is a rebuilding job here.

"A new back five, injuries, I get all that, but the players they have brought in shouldn't be losing all of their away games domestically and getting hammered here will damage them physiologically."
