Grant pays tribute to Terry

Chelsea boss Avram Grant paid tribute to his team captain John Terry after he missed a spot kick in the penalty shoot out that could've wrapped up the Champions League title for the Blues.

However, Terry was in solid form throughout the game, and actually kept Chelsea in the tie after clearing off the line.

'What can I say? We dominated the game, we hit the post two times and then we lost on penalties,' the Blues boss told Sky Sports.

'JT is the main reason we are here. We had a difficult time and he is part of the team. The team play excellently and I am very proud.

'He was great all season, he was great in the semi-final and this game. He is the reason they didn't create any chances - I feel sorry for him and the team.'
