Manager Ronny Deila was satisfied with Celtic's Champions League draw at Maribor while firmly believing they could have won.

"It's a good result but we could have won it" - Ronny Deila
Midfielder Callum McGregor earned the visitors an early lead cancelled out by Damjan Bohar ahead of next week's return in Glasgow.

Deila had earlier rather surprisingly relegated last season's top scorer Kris Commons to the bench.

"We were well prepared and the players were fantastic for 90 minutes," he told BBC Scotland. "We looked like a team, worked hard together and created chances. It's a good result but we could have won it.

"We were closing to win more than they were. I think we have to be more satisfied team," Deila added. "The away goal is vital, 1-1 is a much better result than 0-0. Maribor are a very good team who are good on the counter attack but we were well-organised and disciplined."

Scott Sinclair was then released by Dembele but denied by the legs of goalkeeper Matt
