We deserved better says defender

Defender Mikael Lustig felt his side deserved at least a point against Bayern Munich in midweek.

The Hoops were eliminated from the Champions League following a particularly well-contested 2-1 defeat despite fighting back strongly at Celtic Park.

"It's a good performance. We at least deserved one point," Lustig reflected to BBC Scotland. "At least we showed to everyone, and especially to ourselves, that we can play in this level. That's better than before.

"We knew we're going to play against good players, but we pressed them well and created chances to score some goals," he added. "We were fighting back into the game. Overall, the performance is okay."

Aberdeen 0 Celtic 2

Both teams had a player sent-off as Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic accounted for third-placed Aberdeen 2-0 at Pittodrie.

Moussa Dembele headed in at the far post from James Forrest's cross to earn them an interval advantage.

But defender Mikael Lustig picked up a second yellow card and was dismissed with fourteen minutes remaining.

However, fellow full-back Kieran Tierney still added a second goal before home substitute Sam Cosgrove was sent-off for a bad late challenge
