Strachan still hopeful for Hoops

Published Add your comment

Celtic boss Gordon Strachan insists the Parkhead side can still qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League despite their 2-0 defeat against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Olympiyskiy Stadium on Tuesday night.

The Hoops made a disastrous start with Brandao´s strike from the edge of the box in the fifth minute followed three minutes later by a Cristiano Lucarelli header.

"The defeat doesn´t make it any easier but we lost our first game last season and we had qualified before the last game had been played." said Strachan.
