AC Milan shrugged off its patchy domestic form to ease past Celtic 3-0 in Group H of the Champions League on Tuesday and close in on the knockout stage.

Kaka and Cristian Zapata pounced on two pieces of abject defending at corners by the home team to score in the 13th and 49th minutes at Celtic Park, before Italy striker Mario Balotelli wrapped up victory in the 59th.

With Ajax beating already-qualified Barcelona 2-1 elsewhere Tuesday, Celtic is not just out of the Champions League but also out of contention for a place in the Europa League's last 32.

Milan holds a one-point lead over Ajax heading into their meeting on the last group stage matches in two weeks, with the winner joining Barca in advancing.
