Celtic kept their hopes of qualifying for the Europa League knockout stages alive with a 2-1 win over RB Leipzig at Parkhead.
The Hoops took the lead early in the first half against the run of play, when James Forrest’s low driven cross found Kieran Tierney, who could arrow a shot in the bottom corner of the net.
The German visitors looked to have nicked a point with ten minutes left, with Jean-Kevin Augustin nodding in a curling cross at the back post, but just one minute later, Odsonne Edouard scored the winner, following smart interplay on the left side from Scott Sinclair and Ryan Christie.
