'No-one blames Gravesen for defeat'- Lennon

Celtic captain Neil Lennon is determined nobody should blame Thomas Gravesen for the 3-2 Champions League defeat to Manchester United.

The summer signing from Real Madrid made two costly errors which were punished by the home side in the Group F opener.

First the 30-year-old was robbed by Michael Carrick before Louis Saha scored the second of his two goals and then he gave the ball away to Paul Scholes, who set up Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's winner.

However, Lennon declined to criticise his midfield partner.

'The three goals were avoidable but nobody is pointing the finger,' said the Hoops skipper.

The Celtic players rallied around Gravesen, who said: 'My team-mates helped me because those mistakes got to me.'

The same players are united in the belief that will learn from their mistakes and should finish second in the group.

FC Copenhagen and Benfica drew in Copenhagen and Celtic face both those sides next at Parkhead this month and in October.

'We saw that we can compete,' said goalkeeper Artur Boruc.

'This is the first game for me and the team.

'United are a big team and club and things are going to be more comfortable from now on.'

Celtic were upset to returning to Glasgow with nothing but Lennon is targeting six points from their next two matches.

'I was just another glorious failure,' he moaned. 'The majority of our play was superb against United.

'The manager set out a game plan and it was working really well. But the thing that sticks on our throat the most was that the goals could have been avoided. They were so many unforced errors.

'But to come here and do that we've got to take a lot from it.

'It's imperative we win our next two home games. The other match was a draw so nobody is running away with it.

'This is the highest level of football you can compete at.

'Before the game the manager just told the boys to have some self-belief and they were magnificent.

'I've played at this level before and there's no guarantees about the next game.

'But the boys that haven't played at this level before should take a lot of confidence from it.

'They shouldn't get too carried away but they can compete at this level. That is a plus point on their behalf.'
