Celtic captain Scott Brown revealed what the “hardest thing to accept” was about the 7-1 defeat courtesy of Paris St-Germain on Wednesday night.

In an interview with the Scottish Sun, the 32-year-old opened up about the heavy defeat and conceded that PSG have some “top-class players” but was still hugely disappointed by his team’s display.

“What’s the hardest thing to accept? Just losing seven goals,” said the skipper before adding, “nobody likes to do that.

“I think some of the goals for us, maybe the first three, were a little bit too sloppy but they’ve scored some wonderful goals and they’ve got some top-class players.

“I think after the first period and the first 20 minutes, we did not too bad and tried to keep the ball.

“But after that we lost a bit of shape and a little bit of focus after losing a couple of quick goals.”

The centre midfielder played the full 90 minutes against PSG, and gained a lot of criticism for his performance.

Brown was give a match rating of five by the Daily Record, but just two by French newspaper L’Equipe.

The midfielder has been a regular for the Hoops this season, playing 23 times across all competitions and grabbing one assists.

The 32-year-old has only missed three league games, two due to injury, and 20 minutes of Celtic’s Champions League campaign.

The experienced midfielder has been at the Bhoys since 2007, moving from Hibernian, and has made 439 appearances in total.

Celtic after their heavy defeat, are next in action against Motherwell on Sunday in the Scottish League Cup final and Brown believes they will be able to instantly “bounce” back saying it’s “not a problem.”
