I didn't know [Ray Clemence, England goalkeeping coach] was here. I've just got to do my best for Celtic. It's nice he came up to watch, the Champions League is a great level. As long as I keep improving, I'll be knocking at the door and if anyone picks me that's great but we'll wait and see.
The supporters of Celtic are very strong and they create an incredible atmosphere at the stadium. That makes it very complicated for the visiting team and I believe we were strong in a difficult environment. We we have to be happy with the draw and gaining our first point.
Benfica had to fight against injustice after injustice. In the most important instance, when Rodrigo found himself alone in front of Forster, and faced with the imminent danger, the only thing Forster could do was to bring him down. It was a clear penalty and was not given. In the 85th minute, in another dubious situation, this time it was Cardozo who was prevented from reaching the ball inside the penalty box. But Matic got a yellow card for a similar foul.

I'm not unhappy. We have attacked as we had to do. We have changed the way we played, we took risks and we won. I would have preferred to have won easily, but this game will serve us all well.
We played well. We passed the ball quickly and well. Barcelona are one of the best teams in the world, have the best players, so that's been the main deciding factor. We were close to winning. Close, but you always know Barcelona will have chances. They came in the second half and they took them. Personally, I think I performed okay. You're never going to see much of the ball and I didn't have one-on-one situations, it was just really trying to keep the ball.
