Celtic’s hopes of qualifying for Europa League over after Shakhtar draw

Celtic will not play in European football beyond the World Cup break after being held to a 1-1 home draw by Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League.Giorgos Giakoumakis gave the hosts the lead at half-time but a brilliant finish from Mykhaylo Mudryk earned the visitors a point and made it 10 Champions League home games without a win for Celtic, a run which stretches back nine years. The result consigned Celtic to a bottom-placed finish in Group F ahead of their final game against the holders Real Madrid in Spain next week and blocked their escape route to the Europa League.
