Guillaume Beuzelin says that the Accies dressing room has mixed feelings over Hamilton’s 4-1 defeat to Celtic.

Hamilton managed to take the lead in this clash. After Marios Ogkmpoe had missed a volley minutes prior, he captialised on getting free space in the box again, heading Blair Alston’s corner into the net.

Jamie Hamilton was sent off shortly afterwards though as the game turned. Odsonne Edouard scored from the resulting free kick but Hamilton managed to fend off plenty of Celtic attacks.

Eventually the door was broken down in the 78th minute. Christopher Julien turned the ball past Luke Southwood from six yards out before Odsonne Edouard and James Forrest strikes piled misery on Accies.

It sees them remain bottom on goal difference following this battle. Whilst he was pleased with some aspect’s of the performance, the Accies man was hoping for better.

“It was mixed emotions in the dressing room,” said Beuzelin. “On the negative we have zero points again. But on the positive we competed for 74 minutes with the side that are top of the league. We managed to be 1-0 up then the sending off was a bit of a blow for us.

“The boys produced a performance, especially defensively. But it wasn’t good enough at the end. Fatigue was there and when you have a lack of concentration a team like this punishes you.

“It’s hard to take but there are positives overall in the performances. The boys were tired but they kept defending well. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to get a point. I think it’s always easy when the Old Firm come here to be motivated.

“We need to have this motivation every game and if we do then we will be fine. I’ve been here the past five years so we know what we need to do to survive, starting in three days time.”
