Celtic boss Gordon Strachan felt Massimo Donati´s experiences epitomised the rollercoaster of emotions of another memorable Champions League night at Parkhead.

Donati was dropped from the starting line-up before the 2-1 win over Shakhtar Donetsk, but the Italian midfielder was brought on 16 minutes into the Group D showdown with Shakhtar Donetsk, after Lee Naylor strained a calf muscle, and went on to score a dramatic winner with the last kick of the match.

Strachan said: "It´s funny - because he has a horrendous start to the day when I tell him he´s not playing, and at the end of the day he´s a hero."
