Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon has revealed that he feels there was nothing he could do to prevent Celtic crashing to a 7-1 defeat by PSG in Paris.

The Hoops have now conceded 12 goals in two games against the French league leaders.

The display has lead to some criticism from fans, and Gordon has been in-line for some stick, but the Scotland international, speaking to the Daily Record, says he did all that he can.

He said: “I don’t think there was a great deal I could have done about the goals. Every one was of tremendous quality. You could go through them all.

“I had a few decent saves in the game, I would have liked to have had more, but the quality of the finishing was so good I wasn’t able to do that.”

The Celtic number one continued, “That can happen. You can go through a game and not make too many saves, but still lose a few goals.

“When the finishing is of that standard, you have to accept that’s the life of a goalkeeper. You need to move on.”

Despite the heavy defeat, Celtic are still in good position to clinch third place in their Champions League group and European football after Christmas.

The Hoops lead Anderlecht by three points and have a superior goal difference, and the teams meet at Celtic Park in December in the final Champions League group stage game of the season.
