Kilmarnock boss accepts Celtic defeat

Kilmarnock boss Mixu Paatelainen had few complaints about the 2-1 home defeat to Celtic and refuted suggestions that his side scored too early in the game. He said: "It's never too early or late to score. We score one and we go for the second but all credit to Celtic, we were playing against a fantastic team and they put us under pressure.

"But I felt we started fantastically well and it's not often you dominate against the Old Firm, they usually put you under pressure straight away.

"After we scored we stopped, they pushed us deep but we could have cleared our lines a little bit better.

"It's another learning experience for the players and hopefully one day you get it right."
