Strachan hails excellent Celtic

Strachan said: “We were playing a very good team. We were playing against a team that beat Liverpool and Manchester United last season.

“It was excellent. How our two strikers played dictated our play.

“This puts us in a decent position in the group. We would have accepted that a month ago.”

He added: “We’re just thinking about trying to qualify.

“That would be a great boost for Scottish football.

“And the big plus is that there were a lot of Scottish players out there.”
