“The longer they stay 1-0, they had a chance throughout the game and scored. That has been the story of our season thus far.

“They [Celtic] You have rhythm, when you have rhythm in your team, a lot of movement will always hurt you in a loss, “he continued.
“But we also changed a few times, we had good opportunities, you know. But obviously, you know from the beginning, it is what it is.
“The result should be better, we all know it, but there are signs, certainly there are signs. But you hurt yourself with every little mistake that is a goal against you.”
“I understand it in football, but then you have to work a little more,” added the experienced coach.
