Celtic striker Anthony Stokes feels the players owe the fans and manager a performance after coming in for criticism for their recent displays.
The Glasgow club drew 0-0 at home to Swiss side Sion in the first leg of their Europa League play-off tie last week before losing 1-0 at home to St Johnstone at the weekend.
The St Johnstone result in particular drew an angry response from Hoops boss Neil Lennon, who said he was 'raging' with his players after the game.
Stokes revealed that the players accepted the criticism from their manager, acknowledging they were well below par, and now hope to bounce back by beating Sion in the second leg on Thursday and progress to the Europa League group stages.
"We take everything on board that the gaffer says, but the most important thing is that we knew we didn't turn up on the day," said the former Arsenal youth star.
"We know ourselves. The gaffer just reinforced what we already knew and that was we didn't do enough to win the game.
"But it is out of our minds now and we're looking forward to Sion. We're focused on the game and we've come here to win.
"We owe the gaffer one, we owe the fans one and we owe ourselves one."
Meanwhile Hoops assistant boss Johan Mjallby has admitted they are desperate to progress past Sion but need to be more clinical in front of goal.
"We desperately want it. We think it's important for the club and the players to be involved in Europe," added the Swede.
"It's half-time, its 0-0. We kept a clean sheet; we knew that we should've done better in the final third in the home game. We need to be more clinical.
"It's delicate, but we're going to go there and try to win the game - that's all that matters."
