Celtic captain Stephen McManus has admitted to making mistakes in Tuesday's defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk but says no-one is too downhearted by the loss.
The Scottish side continued their woeful away record in the UEFA Champions League by losing 2-0 in Ukraine, but McManus has vowed to bounce back.
"On a personal level I know I made mistakes and I also understand I'll make a lot more before my career is finished," he said.
"It was a disappointing result but one defeat doesn't cripple Celtic so far as the rest of the group is concerned.
"There's no-one in that dressing room feeling sorry for themselves. You dust yourself down and move on."
Next time out
Celtic host current European champions Milan in their next Champions League game, a repeat of last year's second-round clash.
And McManus is looking forward to the game, but knows it will be tough.
"The next game against AC Milan will be difficult but we could all be sitting at home watching the Champions League on the telly.
"I know I would rather be playing it."
