  1. Europe exit for Celtic; still in control at home

    FT: Valencia 1-0 Celtic (agg 3-0)

    So Celtic exit at the last 32 stage for the second season running.

    But Brendan Rodgers' side still have plenty to play for as they lead the Scottish Premiership by eight points and are in the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup having already retained the League Cup in their search of another domestic treble.

    Celtic's Scott Brown and Kristoffer Ajer thank their fans
  2. Who Celtic won't face!

    FT: Valencia 1-0 Celtic (agg 3-0)

    So who else is in the last 16 of the Europa League along with Valencia?

    Last night, Sevilla progressed by beating Lazio and so far through tonight's ties are Villarreal, who progressed from Rangers' group, RB Salzburg, who topped Celtic's group, Arsenal, Dinamo Zagreb, Eintracht Frankfurt, Napoli and Zenit St Petersburg.

  3. Rodgers disputes red card

    FT: Valencia 1-0 Celtic (agg 3-0)

    Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers thinks a dubious red card was a key moment in the game.

    "Our shape worked really well for us and we started the game ever so well," he says. "We carried a threat in our penetration and it looked like we would get the goal - and I think the referee took that away from us and that was disappointing.

    "We had a chance to go 1-0 up through Kristoffer Ajer, but we lost a goal through a moment of slackness. Overall, though, I thought we were excellent."

  4. Celtic must make changes

    FT: Valencia 1-0 Celtic (agg 3-0)

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: This summer, Celtic have to get rid of players and they've got to sign players because there's going to be positions that they have to strengthen. It's going to take a lot of work and it's going to take money to do it
  5. Celtic not punching above weight

    FT: Valencia 1-0 Celtic (agg 3-0)

    Tom English

    BBC Scotland's chief sports writer

    Quote Message: If you are looking for signs that Celtic can punch above their weight in European competition, there's not a lot to go on
  6. 'Mistakes cost us'

    FT: Valencia 1-0 Celtic (agg 3-0)

    Quote Message: They kept fighting and we could have got back into it with a header, but it's a poor goal to concede and it's something we need to learn at this level, to anticipate better. Mistakes cost us in the first game, but I'm very proud of them tonight from Brendan Rodgers Celtic manager on BT Sport

  7. Celtic 'superior' until red card

    FT: Valencia 1-0 Celtic (agg 3-0)

    Quote Message: Everyone thought it was a formality, even Valencia, and the referee took the game away from us. We were so superior before the sending off and you heard the crowd starting to whistle. I thought Jeremy Toljan was fouled himself from Brendan Rodgers Celtic manager on BT Sport

  8. Celtic didn't test keeper

    FT: Valencia 1-0 Celtic (agg 3-0)

    Peter Houston

    Former Scotland assistant manager on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: Over the two legs, Celtic haven't worked the goalkeeper. At Celtic Park, he never had a save really to make. Tonight, no. But Ajer could have got that glance in the header that might have brought them back into the tie. Over the piece, Celtic tonight played far better football on the ground
  9. Red card 'soft' - Hayes

    FT: Valencia 1-0 Celtic (agg 3-0)

    Quote Message: We tried our best in difficult circumstances. The sending off looked a bit soft and we tried to stay in the game, but they eventually broke through from Jonny Hayes Celtic left-back on BT Sport

  10. Sending-off crucial - Ajer

    FT: Valencia 1-0 Celtic (agg 3-0)

    Quote Message: We had a really clear plan and we gave it a good go, but it was always going to be tough and the sending off made it that bit harder from Kristoffer Ajer Celtic defender on BT Sport

  11. No Celtic progress in Europe

    FT: Valencia 1-0 Celtic (agg 3-0)

    Tom English

    BBC Scotland's chief sports writer

    Quote Message: It was another poor home performance by Celtic. They didn't turn up and there was no way Valencia were going to be suckered into losing two goals at home. Is there any sign of progress for Celtic in Europe? In terms of performances on the pitch, Brendan Rodgers hasn't done it
  12. Valencia a Europa League team

    FT: Valencia 1-0 Celtic (agg 3-0)

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: For all that Valencia are a decent team, they haven't really cut Celtic up. You would expect them - a top Spanish team, an extra player on the pitch at home - to really go at Celtic. But I don't think they're cut out for that. I think that's probably why they're in this Europa League rather than in the Champions League. They just haven't got the ammunition up front
  13. FULL-TIME Valencia 1-0 Celtic (agg 3-0)

    It was more than likely all over after the first leg in Glasgow, with Celtic having to do what they had never done before - win in Spain. And by two or more goals.

    It looked the impossible could be possible as Brendan Rodgers' side had the better of the first half.

    But a second yellow card for Jeremy Toljan just before the break effectively ended any lingering hopes of a comeback and substitute Kevin Gamerio's goal midway through the second half to put them out their misery.

    Celtic's Kristoffer Ajer is left disappointed

  14. GREAT SAVE!

    Valencia 1-0 Celtic (agg 3-0)

    Celtic goalkeeper Scott Bain does well to beat away a close-range Lee Kang-in header and Jozo Simunovic clears from in front of goal.

  15. Post update

    Valencia 1-0 Celtic (agg 3-0)

    Another chance for Santi Mina, but he turns the ball straight into the arms of Celtic goalkeeper Scott Bain from close range as we enter three minutes of stoppage time.

  16. Post update

    Valencia 1-0 Celtic (agg 3-0)

    Santi Mina curls a drive over wide of the far post as Valencia continue to press a tiring Celtic.

  17. Post update

    Valencia 1-0 Celtic (agg 3-0)

    Celtic are fortunate not to concede a penalty as Toni Lato takes a tumble after Ryan Christie leans on the defender as he burst into the box.

  18. Post update

    Valencia 1-0 Celtic (agg 3-0)

    The game is taking its toll on Celtic now and Scott Brown and Kristoffer Ajer are both down nursing an injury after the team-mates collide as they attempt to clear.

  19. Improvement on last week

    Valencia 1-0 Celtic (agg 3-0)

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: I think Celtic will take a little bit of heart from this one. Much, much better structure to the team, much better all-round performance. They've kept the ball well, but they also defended quite well. They've been so, so unlucky to go down to 10 men
  20. It's all over now

    Valencia 1-0 Celtic (agg 3-0)

    Valencia's Kevin Gameiro scores
