Celtic’s Thomas Gravesen has accepted responsibility for the mistakes that led to two of Manchester United goals in Wednesday’s 3-2 Champions League defeat.
Wayward passes from the recently signed midfielder allowed Louis Saha and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to score United’s second and third goals respectively in the Group F tie.
“I think it’s easy to see why we lost – because of my mistakes,” said the Dane.
“I can only hold my hands up and say I’m the player who cost us the game, but that doesn’t make it any better.
“For me personally, this is a massive disappointment. I made two massive mistakes and that made it very difficult for my team,” he added.
“The team performed fantastically. Everyone worked their socks off and we played some great stuff.
“However I spoiled it all. I feel awful about that.
“It’s easy for me to see where I need to improve. I need to work harder.
“No one said anything to me in the dressing room – they didn’t need to.”
Celtic manager Gordon Strachan alluded to the mistakes made by Gravesen among others.
He said: “Our back four was fantastic in my opinion. Our flair players on the night gave us effort, but they didn’t give us their best.
“Our biggest problem was unnecessary bad passing. But we did alright.
