Celtic suffered a 2-0 defeat to Valencia in the first leg of the Europa League clash at home on Thursday.

Rubén Sobrino was the star man for Los Che as he setup Denis Cheryshev’s first goal to give his side the lead in the first half before, doubling the lead himself just three minutes into the second half by tapping in Daniel Wass’ cross from the left.

AS have come up with player ratings and we focus on the rating given to the Bhoys players in today’s edition of the Spanish newspaper.

Brendan Rodgers started Jozo Šimunović and Dedryck Boyata in the heart of the back four and the two, along with forward Oliver Burke, who is currently on loan from West Bromwich Albion, have received blanks due to their poor performance.

The rest of the players received a single star and this includes goalkeeper Scott Bain, fullbacks Jeremy Toljan and Emilio Izaguirre, midfielders Scott Brown, Callum McGregor, James Forrest, Ryan Christie and Scott Sinclair. 

Even substitutes Odsonne Édouard and Timothy Weah, the latter arriving at the club on loan from Paris Saint-Germain in January, received a single star rating.

With Valencia having an advantage of two away goals and Celtic’s poor track record in the European competitions in away fixtures, it looks like the Scottish side have an uphill task to progress to the next round of the Europa League.
