Celtic’s second-half implosion saw them reduced to nine players against Feyenoord as they once again failed to claim a Champions League away win.
They started brightly and had Daizen Maeda threaten early, but Calvin Stengs’ free-kick stunned the Hoops just before half-time.
That sparked the Dutch champions into life and Gustaf Lagerbielke conceded a penalty and was shown a second yellow card before Joe Hart saved the spot kick.

The night then went from bad to worse with substitute Odin Thoago Holm shown a straight red for a reckless challenge.
Alireza Jahanbakhsh wrapped up the win for Feyenoord who also had efforts disallowed either side of that goal.
