  1. Bye for now

    FT: Celtic 1-3 Copenhagen (2-4)

    That's all folks. It was a dreadful night for the Scottish champions, who were turned over on their own patch by Copenhagen.

    A huge opportunity missed.

    There's more live football tomorrow as Hibernian and Inverness Caley Thistle meet in the Scottish Cup. BBC Scotland will have live telly, radio and online coverage of the action from Easter Road.

    Join us for that if you can and thanks for your company.

    Former Scotland forward on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: I think Celtic will get over it pretty quickly. They will want to get back out on the pitch and get this out of their system. The focus is on getting nine in a row and winning another treble
  3. What next for Celtic?

    FT: Celtic 1-3 Copenhagen (2-4)

    No time to lick their wounds. Celtic go to McDiarmid Park on Sunday looking to reach the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup.

    The holders have won their last 33 cup ties, which is pretty remarkable. Can they bounce back from tonight's bitter disappointment and make it 34?

  4. Post update

    One or two big boys left standing and one or two you might fancy...

    Celtic will be kicking themselves that they are not involved. Remember, they beat Lazio home and away on their way to topping their group.

  6. Post update

    FT: Celtic 1-3 Copenhagen (2-4)

    So, Rangers are through and Celtic are out.

    The draw for the last 16 of the Europa League is tomorrow lunchtime, so let's have a look at the remaining sides.

    It's an open draw. No seeding, just balls out of the hat.

  7. 'Basic, individual mistakes have cost us'

    FT: Celtic 1-3 Copenhagen (2-4)

    More from Celtic boss Neil Lennon as he talks to the gathered media.

    "We basically shot ourselves in the foot," he says. "We didn't manage the game after getting back into it.

    "We had a great opportunity and we let it go.

    "We were the better team for huge parts of the game. We did all of the forcing but we gave away cheap goals.

    "These players have been absolutely brilliant for me, so I'm not going to criticise. They know they've let themselves down. Basic, individual mistakes have cost us".

  8. 'It's not what I expect from my team' - Lennon

    FT: Celtic 1-3 Copenhagen

    Celtic manager Neil Lennon tells BT Sport: "I thought we played well first half, we had good control of the game and could have been in the lead. We conceded a poor first goal, they've done brilliantly to galvanise themselves and get back into the game.

    "There's two minutes between us equalising and them scoring again and it's about game management. Experienced players didn't manage the game as well as you'd expect them to. I didn't think we deserved to lose. I'm really interested to see what McGregor's goal was disallowed for.

    "It's not what I expect from my players. They've been magnificent for me and I'm sure they will be again.

    "We're not here to scapegoat anyone, we win as a team and lose as a team."

  9. Post update

    FT: Celtic 1-3 Copenhagen (2-4)

    That was the first time a Danish team has even scored at Celtic Park in seven attempts.

  10. 'Small margins' says winning manager

    FT: Celtic 1-3 Copenhagen (2-4)

    Former Wolves manager Stale Solbakken is in charge of Copenhagen and he's a very happy chap.

    "It was very small margins," he says. "We knew Celtic would go hard and we quietened them in the first 15 minutes before they had us on the ropes a bit.

    "Second half was even and we were just more effective. It could of been us, it could have been them.

    "We are very proud to come here and score three goals."

  11. 'We've given them two or three goals'

    FT: Celtic 1-3 Copenhagen (2-4)

    Celtic defender Christopher Jullien tells BT Sport: "We've just given the [first] goal, simply. It was a little bit back in our half and we just get sloppy for one moment and in this kind of game, it's a place for no mistakes. We gave them two or three goals tonight.

    "We need to bounce back, think about what we did wrong and correct that. It's a bad day but we have to get through it. It wasn't a good mentality after we scored. In the five minutes after the goal you need to keep your focus. There is no place for mistakes."

  12. 'It's about how we bounce back'

    FT: Celtic 1-3 Copenhagen (2-4)

    Celtic captain Scott Brown tells BT Sport: "It just wasn't our day and we're big boys, we can take it on the chin and we've got to make sure we bounce back. We've got a huge game yet again on Sunday [against St Johnstone in the Scottish Cup].

    "We're disappointed not to get to the last 16, but it's done and dusted now and we need to make sure we concentrate. There's no time for us to be sloppy and continue this. We have to be as positive as we possibly can."

  13. 'Simunovic slip so costly'

    FT: Celtic 1-3 Copenhagen (2-4)

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: The first goal was key for me. Jozo Simunovic lets the ball bounce and run down the side of him when he should have been booting it into the stands. I've seen Simunovic make that mistake so many times.
  14. Calamitous Celtic masters of own downfall

    FT: Celtic 1-3 Copenhagen (2-4)

    Tom English

    BBC Scotland's chief sports writer on Sportsound

    Quote Message: That was a calamitous second-half performance from Celtic. The defending was shocking. Copenhagen are a decent team but Celtic made them look better than they are with catastrophic errors. There was collective panic.
  15. Lights out for Celtic

    FT: Celtic 1-3 Copenhagen (2-4)

    I was all set for extra time after Odsonne Edouard chipped in that cheeky penalty but Celtic just threw it away after getting that lifeline from a VAR decision.

    It was a time for cool heads and they lost theirs.

  16. First defeat of 2020 for Celtic

    FT: Celtic 1-3 Copenhagen (2-4)

    BBC Sport Scotland at Celtic Park

    That’s the first game of football Celtic have lost this year, and what a sore one. It means they’re out of the Europa League at the last 32 stage for the third year in a row, having been seven minutes away from forcing extra time.

    How quickly things can change. Just the one Scottish team in Friday's draw.

    Celtic players look on in disbelief

  17. Plaudits for the Danes

    FT: Celtic 1-3 Copenhagen (2-4)

    James McFadden

    Former Scotland forward on BBC Radio Scotland

    Quote Message: You've got to credit Copenhagen for the pressure they put Celtic under in the second half.
