AC Milan kept their Champions League hopes alive with a 3-0 thrashing of Celtic that ended a miserable seven-game winless run and sent the Scottish side crashing out of Europe.

Milan, who hadn’t won away in Europe in almost a year, got off to the perfect start when Kaka found himself with time and space to head home a 12th minute corner.

The Hoops were left to rue a missed opportunity for Virgil van Dijk just after the break when Cristian Zapata increased Milan’s advantage with a 49th minute tap-in. Van Dijk had a goal ruled out for offside minutes later before Mario Balotelli (left) ended Celtic’s hopes when his strike made it 3-0 in the 59th minute as Milan became only the second side to defeat the hosts at home in the group stages of CL.AFP
