Valencia in control after seeing off Celtic in Glasgow

Kieran Tierney could return tomorrow night

Kieran Tierney could return tomorrow night

Goals either side of half-time from Denis Cheryshev and Ruben Sobrino left Celtic's hopes of qualifying for the last 16 in tatters. So the lessons learned at this level are you really have to concentrate.

That is for the future though, firstly Rodgers has to get his players motivated for a tough trip to Kilmarnock.

Callum McGregor lost possession in midfield as Valencia broke the deadlock on 42 minutes, with Emilio Izaguirre playing the galloping Sobrino onside in the build-up.

I thought we started the game well.

Michigan Coach John Beilein Ejected in Upset Loss vs. Penn State
The Wolverines fell 75-69 in the upset loss to the Nittany Lions, who were ranked at the very bottom of the Big Ten. Matthews scored the next four MI points to bring MI within four, 55-51, with 8:18 remaining in the contest.

In truth we are as good as out of the competition, with many now dreading the return fixture at the Mestalla.

The young Celtic fan looked on edge as the ball was put at his feet and with the BT camera's firmly on them, they played it cool before the cameras went back to the action.

"At times we lacked concentration, which is so important at this level, and Valencia were pretty comfortable by the end".

Brendan Rodgers had urged his players to believe that they were as good as their fancied opponents but this display was proof that, given current resources, even the Hoops manager's powers of persuasion have their limits, too. So it ended up a disappointing night for us. We need to defend and concentrate well, especially in key moments of the game. It did look as though Burke was set to break free of his shackles towards the end of the first half when Scott Sinclair sent him scampering in behind the Valencia defence, but stopper Neto raced from his line to clear before he could get a strike away.
