Roussey was not surprised to see his side draw with Celtic

Sion coach Laurent Roussey says he is satisfied with his side's goalless draw against Celtic in the Europa League.

The Swiss side will enjoy home advantage for the second leg of the play-off tie and Roussey was pleased with the way his side adapted to a Scottish style of football.

"We played the way I wanted them to, we kept the ball," he said.

"I think we played better as the match went on and I felt Celtic were under pressure near the end."

And Roussey, who fielded four players considered ineligible by Fifa and Uefa, says he is looking forward to Thursday's return leg.

"It was very physical and intense game, not what we are used to in Swiss league, he said.

"We looked at Celtic before the game, we knew we had to be organised and we were.

"It was a 0-0 draw, so it is 50-50, although there is always a bit of a home advantage if it goes to extra time.

"So I am satisfied with the draw and looking forward to next week."
