CELTIC full-back Greg Taylor admit that his side shot themselves in the foot as they passed up a glorious chance to reach the last 16 of the Europa League.

The Scottish champions fell to a hugely disappointing 3-1 defeat to Copenhagen at Celtic Park after drawing in Denmark last week, and Taylor says the feeling within Neil Lennon's dressing room afterwards was that they only have themselves to blame after a lacklustre 90 minutes.

“I thought in the first half we had pretty good control of the game, we were creating chances and we were unfortunate not to be up at the break," Taylor said.

“The second half was an even tussle I felt, they came into it a wee bit and we obviously went a goal down.

“But we got ourselves back in the game and we should have kicked on from there, but we shot ourselves in the foot losing a goal so soon after equalising.

“I didn’t feel like there was even a minute between us equalising and them going back in front.

“That is the one thing that doesn’t sit well with us. We got ourselves back into the game and that should have been enough to get us through to extra-time at least.

“Of course, there is no doubt we will look back on this one with a lot of regret.

“It was a massive chance for us to get to the last 16, the incentive was there for us.

“We wanted to get through and we are all disappointed we haven’t been able to do that."
