GLASGOW, Scotland -- Borussia Moenchengladbach capitalized on two defensive errors by Kolo Toure to beat Celtic 2-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday, earning the German team its first points in Group C. Glen Rice Jersey .Toures first error came when he tried to shepherd the ball over the byline for a goal kick in the 57th. Andre Hahn wrapped his foot around the defender and hooked the ball back into the area, where Lars Stindl drove a shot through goalkeeper Craig Gordons legs from an acute angle.Hahn doubled the lead in the 77th after Toures pass near the halfway line was intercepted. Hahn sprinted through the middle and toe-poked a finish high into the net from just inside the area, just as Toure got back to attempt a lunging tackle.Im 35 and making a mistake like a 16-year-old, Toure said.Moenchengladbach revived its hopes of qualifying in the top two, having opened group play with losses at Manchester City and at home to Barcelona. The team is only a point behind City after three games.Celtic remained on one point and with games to go at City and at home to Barcelona, even a third-place finish -- and a spot in the Europa League -- looks remote for the Scottish champions.Moenchengladbach was on top for most of the game at Parkhead, with only a series of good saves by Gordon off Ibrahima Traore, Jonas Hofmann and Hahn keeping the teams level by the halftime.We were beaten by a better team, you cant argue with that, Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers said. They were just sharper and quicker and thats the level we aspire to.When a game is going like that you dont want to gift anything and, unfortunately, we gave away two gifts.The teams meet again in Germany in two weeks.
