Joe Hart: The Celtic skipper in place of McGregor produced a magnificent one-handed stop on 18 minutes and also made a decent save from Fekir. The former England No.1 was well beaten by Miranda's close-range effort after some poor defensive play by Jota and Soro and could do nothing about Borgja Iglesias counter and Juannmi's double. 7

Anthony Ralston: It was a welcome return to the first-team fold for the right-back. His heart must have been in his mouth when Miranda's deflected shot smashed off him and struck the base of the post. It was his poor defensive header that inadvertently led to Betis pulling a goal back to make it 1-2. He should have tracked Juanmi for the equaliser and the cross which led to the third Real goal came down his side. He scored a header with four minutes to go for his third goal of the season to give the visitors a fighting chance. 6

Josip Juranovic: The Croatian international showed his versatility again when he was deployed at left-back just as he was on his debut at Ibrox. He confidently slammed home the spot-kick from 12 yards to put Celtic 2-0 up on the night as he bagged his first goal for the club. He galloped forward at will and linked well with Montgomery and offered a decent outlet down the left flank. 6

Cameron Carter-Vickers: The centre-back was fresh from a goalscoring debut for his new club. He flashed a header over the top in the first 45 minutes but crucially switched off and reacted slowly as Borja Iglesias easily ran off him and squared for Juanmi to make it 2-2. He also looked culpable at the third goal alongside Starfelt. 6

Carl Starfelt: The Swedish star put in a superb blocking tackle on Joaquin and was dove-tailing nicely with his central defensive partner Carter-Vickers inside the opening 30 minutes. A breakdown in communication with his partner led to Betis' third goal with neither defender picking up Borja Iglesias who ghosted in between the pair of them to score easily. 6

David Turnbull: The Scotland midfielder was a real bundle of energy and his passing was excellent in the first half. He split the Real Betis defence to send Ajeti through on goal before he was brought down by Bravo which led to the penalty. Another one who wilted in the Andalucian heat after a bright opening and saw a second-half effort saved by Bravo. It was Turnbull who picked out Ralston with a superb delivery for the third Celtic goal. 6

Tom Rogic: The Australian midfielder almost played in Jota inside the opening few minutes and got forward to good effect and linked play well with his fellow midfielders and frontmen. Showed some real flashes of skill and a few glimpses of his passing range but could have got tighter to Junami for the crucial fourth goal. He screamed a magnificent volley off the post which would have made it 4-3 on the night. 7

lsmalia Soro: The Ivoarian picked up a deserved early booking for a poor challenge on eight minutes and walked a tightrope after that. He committed another stupid foul soon after and was lucky not to see red and it really is a part of his game that he needs to work on. He failed to clear his lines and half-heartedly challenged Miranda as he waltzed through to score to make it 1-2 and hooked for James McCarthy on 55 minutes. 4

Jota: The Portuguese winger played in a fantastic cross into the danger area where Ajeti supplied the crucial finishing touch. He also spurned a glorious chance for a third just before the half-hour mark when he tried to clip Bravo instead of hammering it towards goal. It turned out to be a pivotal moment in the match. Neglected his defensive duties and was partly culpable for the opening Betis goal by Miranda. He crossed for Rogic to slam a volley off the post. 7

Albian Ajeti: The Swiss striker who was once signed by Betis boss Manuel Pellegrini for £8 million was in the right place at the right time to bundle home a priceless opening goal from inside the six-yard box. He could have claimed a second moments later when he forced Claudio Bravo into a close-range save. Linked superbly with Turnbull for the penalty incident which Juranovic buried and scored with a second-half header that was ruled out for offside and saw a second-half header ruled out for offside. 7

Adam Montgomery: The 19-year-old was handed his first start of the season on such a huge occasion. The teenager started brightly enough and linked well with Turnbull, Rogic and Juranovic. He stuck manfully to his task and put in a mature performance on an evening when he was asked to step up to the plate. 6


James McCarthy: Came on for Soro after 55 minutes but the game was well and truly gone from Celtic by then. However, there was an assuredness and a composure about him which will bode very well for the future. 5
