Celtic midfielder Joe Ledley was quick to praise his team-mates for their performance in the club's 1-1 draw with Rennes at the Route de Lorient on Thursday.
The former Cardiff man grabbed the vital equaliser with 20 minutes remaining to keep the Glasgow club's Europa League Group I hopes alive.
Celtic had earlier fallen a goal down thanks to a horrendous mix-up between goalkeeper Fraser Forster and midfielder Cha Du-ri
However, Ledley was quick to highlight the way the duo and the team responded in the second half to help the Hoops fight back and grab the draw.
"We knew we couldn't lose this game, it was a massive game for us and I'm just glad we got the point at the end but maybe on another day we would have won the game," Ledley told ESPN.
"I think the gaffer just said forget about it [the own goal], we couldn't have the lads thinking about it in the second half and to be fair big Fraser [Forster] and Cha recovered brilliantly.
"Big Fraser made some tremendous saves in the second half and really made up for it."
The 24-year-old is a midfielder by trade but was told to play in the unfamiliar position of left-back by Neil Lennon on Thursday.
Ledley admits it is not his strongest position but insists he is willing to play anywhere to help the team get the right results.
"I thought I did okay at left-back, it is not my strong point but I was happy to do it for the team," added Ledley.
"I'm just glad we put in a great team performance, we've got great players here."
