    Difference in control and composure on the ball was vast our guys couldn't hold on to it and yet again no midfielder picked up Invests for his goal.

    Massive gulf in class, finances and ability. But we made it so easy for them. You can't press players of that quality as an individual. They always have an option. Harsh lesson, move on.

    We haven't won away from home in Europe this season that includes Lincoln Red Imps so hardly surprising we lost this

    Sinners are sent to * for eternity. In the CL, Celtic are sent to Barcelona for eternity.

    Penalty miss and their 3rd were major turning points. De Vries looks poor.

    Won't be judged on that result tonight. When they turn up like they did tonight then they'll thump better teams than us. What we will be judged on though is how we pick ourselves up from tonight and in the coming games starting up at Inverness this weekend.

    DDV should have saved at least 2 and could have moved from his 6 yard box in the game. he shat it to leave his 6 yard box numerous times. the scoreline reflects a poor night for the celtic team even though it was in Barcelona. DDV aint the answer for a goalkeeper in this team. Gordon will be sitting on that bench Gritting his teeth btw. Bailly would have done a better job. on to saturday to get a result now and dont let this get the better of us in the end. its all about trying to compete at that level. bread and butter for the weekend.. should take our frustrations out on Inverness.

    We were well beaten by one of the tournament favourites on they're ground in our first match in the CL for three seasons. It was a hard watch but in the bigger scheme of things it doesn't really matter.

    That is the hardest game we'll need to play this CL season even if we get to the final.

    The next game against Man City at home is a lot more important. We should be aiming for around 4 points from our next to games and there's no reason that's not attainable. We were okay in the first half and then our heads went down. The rest of the game was write off. I take nothing from that game (apart from thinking De Vries is a bit *).

    We've got another 5 long nights ahead of us esp when Rodgers won't drop Brown no matter how average a player he is. - smacks of the Strachan Caldwell love in.

    The irony of course is then we would violate FFP.

    The reality is the financial gulf from TV contracts between Scotland and all the elite leagues in Europe. We make a big deal about getting £30mil for making CL but that's because it's more than we get from domestic TV contract in a whole season. Meanwhile the team that finishes 20th in La Liga still gets at least €60mil.

    Celtic participating in the CL proper every year is the only thing that keeps us remotely in the same ballpark.

    Not too worried the gulf in class tonight was massive but at least we are there,the team is improving and with another couple of transfer windows BR will have us where we need to be .
