  1. 90+3

    The final whistle is blown as and with it go Celtic's Champions League hopes for this year. Ajax have beaten Barcelona so it means the end of this season's European dream.

  2. 90+2

    A defiant round of chanting rings around Celtic Park as the inevitability of this Champions League campaign coming to an end sinks in.

    A lot of crosses have been played into Samaras but the Milan defence has easily dealt with his aerial threat all evening.

  15. 76

    Samaras heads down into the path of Ledley but he is unable to get a shot away as Zapata is on to him.

  16. 74

  17. 72

    Birsa is replaced by Constant.

  18. 70

    Celtic are pressing to try and at least score a consolation goal as they try not to go out of the competition with a whimper.

  46. 33

  47. 32

    Birsa tries a shot from long range and it goes no where near the goal.

  48. 31

  53. 24

    Mulgrew plays in another corner with Abbiati again electing to punch clear but looking vulnerable in the process. The ball returns back into the box for Celtic and Boerrigter looks to be through on goal but he is adjudged offside.

  54. 23

    Celtic are battling hard to win any 50/50 balls and they have responded well after going 1-0 down.

  55. 21

    Samaras and De Jong come together in the Milan penalty area with the Greece international taking exception to the challenge, but the referee waves play on.

  56. 21

  58. 18

  59. 17

    Celtic are looking to press the AC Milan midfield early and give them a hard time in settling into their passing game.

  60. 15

    Balotelli has a threatening run at the Celtic defence and finds Birsa on the right, but he is unable to put in a decent cross.

  68. 5

    Milan have slumped to 13th in Serie A so you'd think if Celtic had a chance to overcome the Italian giants then now is the time.

  69. 3

    Immediately at the other end Balotelli finds himself with time and space after the ball drops to him, but he drags his shot wide.

  70. 3

    Mulgrew takes the Celtic corner and he finds Boerrigter free at the back post, but the Dutchman fluffs his lines.
