Brendan Rodgers slams Celtic defending in AEK Athens loss

  • Jack Hendry and Craig Gordon are both expecting Celtic to progress in the Champions League

Within six minutes his side were a goal down through a Rodrigo Galo strike, with Croatian striker Marko Livaja heading in a second five minutes after the break.

Here are our player ratings.

Scott Sinclair headed in late on, but it was not enough to save Celtic, whose Champions League adventure came to a premature end in Athens. I thought a lot of our build-up play was worth something from the game but you can't defend that softly.

It is the first time that former Liverpool manager Rodgers has lost back-to-back games since taking charge of Celtic in 2016, after their shock 1-0 Scottish Premiership defeat at Hearts last Saturday.

Dropping down to the Europa League, where they will play Latvian side Spartaks Jurmala or Lithuanian side Suduva, is a huge blow for Celtic who will miss out on the prestige - not to mention the vast sums of money - to be earned in the Champions League.

Speaking on BT Sport during the closing stages of the match, Sutton said: "Celtic have stockpiled this money".

Benfica, champions in 1961 and 1962, earned a 2-1 overall win over Fenerbahce after a 1-1 draw in Istanbul and four-time winners Ajax Amsterdam cruised to a 5-2 aggregate defeat of Standard Liege. He has been with us on the journey now for a couple of years and helped us get to this position and of course, someone of his quality, a World Cup semi-finalist in our team, would certainly would have helped.

After drawing the first leg 1-1 in Glasgow, it was all to play for in the Greek capital tonight, but they did not step up to the plate.
