Celtic midfielder Barry Robson will still volunteer for penalty duty despite his costly UEFA Champions League miss.
Robson allowed Aalborg goalkeeper Karim Zaza to save his spot-kick at Parkhead on Wednesday night as the Danish champions escaped with an unlikely 0-0 draw from their Group E encounter.
"You can't go away hiding just because you missed a penalty - you have to be
big enough and brave enough to take them again and I'll make sure I do that," Robson said.
"I'm just disappointed that I let the boys down a little bit by missing it. I
just wish I'd scored it to be honest."
He added: "I did the same as I always do and I'm always confident of scoring
"But for some reason, I didn't catch the ball quite right. It's frustrating and the last penalty I hit before this one wasn't that great either.
"But it's only the second I've missed in my whole career and I'm confident of taking them again."
Despite the disappointment of Wednesday night's draw, and the prospect of tough trips to Villarreal and Manchester United, Robson believes the Scottish champions can still recover from their poor start.
"There is everything still to play for so we have to be positive. We have to win our games at home and try to take something away from home," he said.
