Manchester City have missed out on reaching the next phase of the NextGen series.

City were defeated 4-2 at home by Celtic last night.

After being pipped by Barcelona then beaten in Marseille, Andy Welsh's lads simply had to win this tie to have a hope of squeezing into second spot and making the New Year play-offs.

Welsh told City's website: "We're obviously disappointed . At this level we have to defend better than that. We have to be brighter and sharper. But we have to be positive and learn from this."
