Brendan Rodgers has admitted that Celtic will have to learn from last night’s 7-1 defeat to PSG.

The Hoops began the game brightly, taking the lead with a Moussa Dembele goal after 57 seconds.

After that though, the roof fell in and the French league leaders cruised to an easy win, with Cavani and Neymar each scoring a double.

The Celtic boss was unhappy with the manner of the goals Celtic conceded, whilst also admitting that PSG are a superior side.

Talking to the Evening Times after the game, the Celtic boss said the Bhoys were guilty of giving the ball away too cheaply.

He said: “Of course there are lessons for us, can we keep the ball a bit better? In the second half we gave it away loosely and I know we can defend better.

“Sometimes with the ball we gave it away too cheaply… If you think of the first goal, you lose possession of the ball. In lots of the games you will get away with it, give it away against this team and they will punish you,” he continued.

Celtic don’t have much time to get this defeat out of their system, as they take on Motherwell in Sunday’s Betfred Cup Final at Hampden Park.
