Irons proud of Gretna performance

Irons was stunned after losing two late goals to Celtic
Gretna manager David Irons was bitterly disappointed to see his side lose out to two late Celtic goals at Fir Park.

"I'm obviously devastated for the players because the gave their all," he told BBC Sport after the 2-1 defeat.

"Celtic put us under pressure and they have got better players than us. But, on the day, I thought our commitment and attitude was just magnificent.

"I don't think anyone would have grudged us a point and to take nothing is really hard to take."

Gretna are bottom of the league, having taken just four points from the opening nine games.

"We know we are not the best team in the league," added Irons, who has picked up just four points from the first nine games of the season.

"If we are going to achieve anything this season it will be through sheer hard work and endeavour.

"The players certainly gave me that today. Maybe not for 90 minutes but certainly for 89."
