“All teams raise their game at Celtic Park and we have to be at our top level every week, to stand up to these challenges and we showed that on Saturday.

“It was unfortunate, one of those things. It didn’t go in and, hopefully, next time I will score when in that position.
“I got through and the angle I was at, I could see the keeper had made himself look big, but there was a wee area to aim for, and I tried to put it in the bottom corner. If I was in that position again I would do the same.

“I know everyone was disappointed but no more than me. All I can do is take it in my stride and bounce back.
“Hopefully, I put in a good performance for the team on Saturday.”
