Celtic crash out following draw


Celtic crashed out of the Europa League despite a valiant effort as they recorded a 1-1 draw against Udinese in their final Group I game at the Stadio Friuli.

The visitors, needing victory to go through into the knockout stages, took the lead in the 29th minute when Gary Hooper took advantage of a mix-up in the Udinese defence to tap in from a yard out.

But veteran striker Antonio Di Natale notched from close range himself with seconds remaining in the first half after Celtic defender Cha Du-ri inadvertently headed into his path.
