Football - Ledley keen not to dwell on cup exit

Joe Ledley has urged Celtic to put their Scottish Communities League Cup disappointment behind them and focus on what they can still achieve this season.

The midfielder was devastated when the Hoops were dumped out by St Mirren in yesterday's semi-final clash at Hampden.

The shock 3-2 defeat cost them a meeting with Hearts in the final and ended any hopes of a domestic treble this season.

But, having already booked their place in the last 16 of the Champions League, and with another Clydesdale Bank Premier League title looking likely, Ledley knows there is still plenty to look forward to.

He said: "We've got the SPL, the Champions League and the other cup as well.

"We just need to concentrate on those, take it game by game and rebuild and go again.

"We've had a fantastic achievement already to get into the last 16 of the Champions League and hopefully we can get a fantastic result against Juventus and go from there.

"We know it's going to be difficult but hopefully we can achieve it."
