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."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
