Strachan calm after loss

Celtic manager Gordon Strachan hopes Tuesday's shock CIS Insurance Cup defeat to Falkirk was a minor setback in their season. The Bhoys lost a penalty shootout after the match had ended 1-1 after extra-time but Strachan was quick to praise the Bairns after the game. "First of all, well done to Falkirk, they went at it and made some chances and so did we," he said. It went to penalties and they did better than us, it was as simple as that, so well done to them. "We're suffering, which you have to after a defeat. It's our first hiccup for a while. Maybe we used up our luck on Saturday against Hearts but that's life. "Eventually you get what you deserve, but you'll have a few blips on the way and hopefully that's one of them."
