Legia Warsaw tweet letter to Celtic asking for showdown meeting to settle Champions League issue

Celtic were incredibly reinstated to the Champions League (qualification) last week, just 24 hours after being knocked out by Legia Warsaw 1-6 on aggregate.
UEFA booted the poor Poles out due to their breaching of the rules by using an ineligible player, who came on in the 86th minute of the second game, a ‘technical error’ according to Legia owner Dariusz Mioduski.
Due to the disproportionate punishment felt by the frustrated Poles, they’ve sent a letter to Celtic, pleading for common sense to prevail, and for the Scottish champions meet with them and see if they can come to a fair agreement.
Legia invoked Celtic’s history as a club of class, dignity and moral values in the letter, and asking them to practice those values that they preach.
Legia tweeted them, ‘Friends!’ Maybe now you can answer?’
As yet, no response from the Bhoys, who are presumably staying well away from social media for now.
