The Bhoys beat Ajax at Celtic Park with James Forrest's penalty and Beram Kayal's strike meaning that Lasse Schone's strike mattered little.

The win gives Celtic a foothold in the group after losses to AC Milan and Barcelona and will gave them something to build on when they head to Amsterdam next.

"It's always good to get a goal before half-time and there was pressure on him (Forrest)," Mulgrew told Sky Sports of the opener.

"He put it away brilliantly.

"We knew this would be a massive game. We needed the points, got them and got two good goals."

Forrest had a long wait before he could take the penalty and was happy to hold his nerve.

"I just focused on where I could put the ball and it landed in the back of the net," he said.

"It was brilliant to get a goal and we look forward to the next game away to them."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
