AC Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri suggested that Celtic are a still a chance to progress from Group H of the Champions League.

The Bhoys were beaten by Allegri’s Rossoneri 2-0 at the San Siro in their opening group fixture but the Italian feels the performance of the Scottish champions gives them every conceivable opportunity to move past the initial phase of a group also consisting of Barcelona and Ajax.

"We had luck a couple of times in the game tonight but it was a positive performance and an important victory for us,” Allegri said.

"Celtic are a very good team. I believe they still have chances of qualifying out of the group but everything is still open so we will see.”

Celtic next face Barcelona, who beat Ajax 4-0, at Celtic Park on October 1 while Milan prepare for their trip to Amsterdam in a fortnight’s time.
