Skipper Scott Brown hit out at the Celtic Park pitch after enjoying the Mestalla's playing surface during the Europa League defeat by Valencia on Thursday.

The Hoops were holding their own until the 37th minute, when German right-back Jeremy Toljan was sent off for picking up the second of two bookings.

They were undone in the 70th minute by a goal from substitute Kevin Gameiro which gave the home side a 3-0 aggregate win.

In January, Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers revealed Celtic Park's new pitch has been struck down by a "slight disease".

And Brown said: "Their pitch was incredible and we knocked the ball about really well. Celtic Park is not so good just now."  Celtic return to domestic matters tomorrow with a home game against Motherwell.
