It is something I am sure this young team will do is learn.”

Celtic ended on the wrong side of a 4-3 thriller against Real Betis, with manager Ange Postecoglu insisting that his side’s determination to play positive football will benefit them in the long run: “You can come here and get a 0- 0 draw [but] that ain’t gonna please me,” he explained. “I would rather we played the football we played tonight. We will get better at it and, when we do, I think we’ll get the rewards as well.”
