Celtic out of Champions League after Martinez heads winner

Bayern Munich midfielder Javi Martinez

Javi Martinez's brave header handed Celtic a 2-1 defeat and ended the Scottish champions' hopes of reaching the Champions League knockout stage.

Bayern Munich took the lead at Celtic Park in the first half when Kingsley Coman pounced to score.

But the home side played valiantly and were rewarded by Callum McGregor's equaliser after the break.

The scoreline was only level for four minutes though, with Martinez suffering a cut as he headed the winner.

With Paris St-Germain defeating Anderlecht 5-0 in the other Group B game, Celtic cannot finish in the top two positions, although they have an advantage over the Belgian side in the race for third and participation in the Europa League knockout stages.
