Ajax boss De Boer not writing off Celtic

Ajax manager Frank De Boer believes Celtic are still a great chance of making it through to the next phase of the Champions League.

De Boer's side beat Neil Lennon's Hoops 1-0 in Amsterdam on Wednesday night, forcing them to the bottom of Group H, but the Scottish champions remain in a position to go through as they sit just a couple of points in arrears of second place.

"Celtic still have a chance, they are still only two points behind Milan," said the former Rangers defender.

"There was more pressure on us after the game in Scotland so we are relieved.

"It is still wide open and we have still to go to the San Siro.

"We also have to play against Barcelona and a point will be a bonus point.

"You see from Celtic last year (against Barcelona) that anything is possible.

"They are already qualified and we have nothing to lose."
