Celtic captain Scott Brown felt his side were the better team after their goalless draw with Benfica.

The Scottish champions had to settle for a point in their Champions League group game in four years at Parkhead.

Chances were few and far between with defences on top, but Brown who was magnificent for Celtic in midfield felt the home side were the better of the two teams on the night.

"I think overall we were the better team," Brown told Sky Sports HD3.

Brown also hailed his side's various Champions League debutants as "unbelievable" with the midfielder the only one player of the starting XI to have played in a group stage game for Celtic before.

"They didn't show it was their debut, that's for sure. They were unbelievable, they were calm under pressure," noted Brown.

Brown added: "We didn't create as many chances as we'd like but I think we played really well."
