Celtic goalkeeper Joe Hart believes that Celtic should have taken more than one point in Warsaw after being held by Shakhtar.

The Scottish champions took an early lead in the match when Reo Hatate stuck the ball in the net on the ten minute mark.

Ange Postecoglou’s side had started the game off well, pressing Shakhtar high up in the pitch with the Ukrainian side looking rocked.

Even after scoring, Celtic could have easily doubled their advantage in the game but where caught out on the break when Mykhaylo Mudryk was set free as he smashed the ball into the roof of the net.

Over the years in European competition, Celtic have had a tendency that when they concede another swiftly follows which everyone thought was the case when former Celtic winger Maryan Shved had the ball in the net only for it to be ruled as offside.

The Hoops had to weather the storm for a period in the game towards the end of the first half but took full control once again after the interval and were the side in control.

For the majority of the match, Joe Hart was a spectator and like many Celtic fans must have felt deeply frustrated.

The former Manchester City keeper expressed his emotions after the game when he took to Instagram. 

“Could have and should have been so much more. Let’s keep pushing hard. Focus on Sunday now Celtic.”

The league leaders will return to domestic action at midday on Sunday afternoon with a visit to Paisley to take on St Mirren.
