Mulgrew: Juve won fair and square

Charlie Mulgrew has admitted that Celtic were beaten by the better side after being knocked out of the Champions League by Juventus.

The Scottish champions lost 2-0 to the Bianconeri on Tuesday evening, going down 5-0 on aggregate in the last 16 clash.

And the 27-year-old has conceded that Antonio Conte's team were deserved winners.

“Juventus are a great team,” he told “They have a great attack and a very solid defence.

“There is no doubting their quality. I wish them all the best for the rest of the competition.

“Juventus won fair and square, but we are disappointed with the result.

“Our mistakes were punished. You have to give them credit.”
